Ken has maintained an interest in Polar exploration since he was a small boy and when offered the opportunity to take part in a trek that traversed northern Norway, Sweden and Finland by Dog Sled he jumped at the chance. This illustrated talk will take you with him as he endures seriously sub zero temperatures, blizzards and the delights of boil in the bag pre packed rations. Forget any thoughts you may have of sitting in a comfortable, fur lined bag being chauffeured across the ice and then returned to your hotel Ken will share his experience with you to the point where you may well feel cold.Views: 25 | Enquiries: 1
