The Last Great March - North Pole 17

weather4expeditions.com will support this expedition, going from Ward Hunt Island (most Northern location of Canada) to the North Pole. We will make daily forecasts for Sebastian Copeland and Mark George - this will help them to make plans and to be safe in cases of extreme weather.

You can check and follow up the expected weather conditions along on their journey on this website

Sebastian Copeland and Mark George will depart from Ward Hunt, the northernmost Canadian coast of Ellesmere Island to reach the Geographic North Pole on foot without assistance.

Only 25 teams have successfully completed that trek without assistance in more than 100 years. Often considered the most difficult expedition on Earth, the last 10 years have only seen 7 teams succeed with more than 80% failure rate.  No one has attempted the Pole since 2014. By comparison, in one 7 day period, 633 people have summited Everest. The team hopes to reach the Pole in less than 49 days; in doing so, they would break the current “unassisted” expedition speed record set by a Norwegian team in 2006. This would be a national first for both expedition members (Sebastian is a British/French national; Mark is Australian)​. Sebastian and Mark met at the South Pole.
