As I said recently, I have also been invited to winter Norway in January next year to take part in an Arctic Training Course run by Arctic Training and Expeditions (ATE) of Norway. The people behind ATE are Norwegians with considerable polar heritage. Their experience comes from generations of conquered frigid environments all over the world.
It's a four day course, aimed at beginners with little or no experience, looking to extend their skillset. Places are still open for this excellent course - contact Rhodri Lewis at Nordic Life for more information. Currently, Nordic Life customers are being offered a 20% discount!
