Teams & Experience

Iceman Polar participants can apply as an individual and join a team, or enter with friends as a team of 2, 3 or 4 people. Participants may request a professional Tangent Expeditions guide, at an additional cost.

Participants should have the following experience:

  • At least ten days camping experience (snow camping not needed)
  • Fit and capable of long mountain days
  • Ability to keep going when the going gets tough!

The following skills will help in the Iceman Polar event, but full training will be given once in Greenland:

  • Winter (snow-based) camping experience
  • Use of a white gas fueled camping stove
  • Ski touring or cross country ski experience
  • Skills for roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue
  • Map reading skills

The event is well managed and supported and there is no need for previous arctic, ski or snow camping experience.
