My Arctic 1,000 mile unsupported trek in 2024/2025.
2024/2025 I’ll be taking on another 1,000-mile trek. 

This time pulling 60 kilos on my pulk unsupported. Across frozen rivers, lakes and wilderness, through Norway, in temperatures that can plummet to minus 40 degrees Celcius.

This unsupported trek is a clear example where I need a solid mindset and meticulous planning, especially when taking on something that can potentially have so many life threatening variables on the journey. In some ways, Just like how I support clients gaining confidence in their own journey.

Whatever your journey may look like; I want to help you be strong enough to take it head-on too. Learn alongside me and follow the updates I will be posting here on Walking With My Bear.
