In December of 2013, Alex Hibbert lead an international quartet of polar travelers to the extreme north of Arctic Greenland. After a huge storm destroyed their intended route to the North Pole in the darkness of winter, instead of retreating, they decided to explore the beautiful but unforgiving region of Avanerriaq, the home of the Polar Eskimos. What followed was six months of harsh education, gripping adventure and twenty unruly sled dogs.

Alex Hibbert is a polar expedition leader in the Arctic. In 2008 he broke the world record for the longest unsupported polar journey in history. He is also a speaker, author, photographer and graduate of St Hugh's College.
