Meet my expedition guide

This is a very small expedition, it’ll just be the two of us!   I am very lucky to be being guided in Antarctica by Mansfield boy, now pseudo Norwegian, Carl Alvey.    Carl and I have already spent a good many weeks together on the ice, so know we get on well and will watch each others backs.  Carl has given me loads of top advice, some of it slightly surprising – for example what do I put on my face after a day of -40 degs and 70mph winds – Carl’s tip – Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. I will try to give you more Carl Antarctic tips as the expedition progresses ….

In 2004 Carl made his first major expedition to the east coast of Greenland and has never looked back since. In the same year he went on to ski the last degree to the South Pole and since these two expeditions has spent time each spring guiding expeditions in Greenland and each northern winter (Antarctica summer) guiding expeditions in Antarctica and working as an Operations Assistant for Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions.

Carl’s expeditions have included leading three trips for the Fuchs Foundation two of which were to Antarctica and one to Greenland, a crossing of the Greenland icecap using dogs and his own Greenland Icecap crossing with kites.
