Mille and Mikkel will be traveling with the Polar Huskies for the entire 1000-mile route. Aaron will join the team with Teacher Explorer Chris Ripken for three weeks during the journey.

without whom there would
be no program!
...And keep in mind, the adventure learning program involves the skills and dedication of all members of Team GoNorth! And team members are by no means just the people on the trail.
That includes Education Basecamp manager Tiffany Simonsen and the many people that work tirelessly behind the scenes; those that support the program helping out with specific tasks from movie and map makers to 'Polar Husky sitters, supporting administrators and government agencies, the incredible GoNorth! teachers -- and not least students and teachers around the world taking part in the program.
Together, we all make it happen! Thank you!
