Extreme. Elite. Life Changing.
The Youth Adventure Trust’s Baffin Island Expedition is the ultimate personal challenge. You will experience the elements as never before. You will push to your physical and mental limits. You will discover your true self.
The terrain is challenging, the location is remote and the weather can change rapidly without warning. Very few are prepared to brave the elements to see some of the world’s most fantastic scenery at its most dramatic. Are you one of them?
Baffin Island is an arctic wilderness of jagged mountain peaks, deep valleys, steep walled fjords and eternal glacial ice. Located above the Arctic Circle, this powerful landscape reflects the Inuit belief that time is infinite and unending. Walking and skiing through the Auyuittuup Park, we will explore this remarkable environment and experience the majesty of the Arctic.
A team of no more than 12 will attempt a ski traverse of the Akshauk Pass which involves travelling over 140 miles through remote and challenging terrain in temperatures as low as -25 C.
The expedition will be self supporting whilst on route and all members of the team will play their part in the success of the venture. Individuals will need to be committed to their training and preparation.
Each individual will be asked to cover their own direct costs and raise £5,000 for the Youth Adventure Trust’s work with vulnerable young children. You will be given comprehensive fundraising support which will enable you to reach your target.
Mark Davey, Youth Adventure Trust Chief Executive, will be your personal guide on this expedition of a lifetime. Contact him for more information about the next expedition and to express an interest in taking part.
