Polar Expedition Guides are highly skilled and experienced practitioners able to manage and lead all aspects of non-specialist polar expeditions. Some guides have skills and experience in specialist areas, as indicated by their online profile. A specialist expedition should always be matched with a specialist guide.
Examples of specialist skills include:
Polar Bear Management
Sea and Thin Ice Travel
Honorary Polar Guide
Honorary Members have retired from active recurrent guiding. They have shown commitment and professionalism during a lasting career in polar guiding and/or exploratory endeavours. Honorarians are widely recognised as having contributed meaningful, inspiring and broadly-respected service to the fields of polar guiding and/or polar adventure.
