Join the PolarQuest team at our expedition training base in Northern Sweden for one of our tailored Expedition & Polar training courses.
After more than two decades running similar courses in Alaska, we are now based close to the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lappland, each Winter running a series of dedicated cold climate skills courses to fellow high & low latitude adventurers. If you are new to Polar type travel, we will have a taster course for you that will teach you the basics of cold climate survival & travel. For more seasoned adventurers, we have courses that will help you develop more specific skills suited to more ambitious destinations such as Svalbard, Greenland & Antarctica.
In addition to our structured courses, we also offer a menu of resources to Polar adventurers here at PolarQuest. We have a self catering bunkhouse that can accommodate up to ten people with ski trails to the high fjells right outside the door. We also have an extensive Polar equipment resource for rental including ski outfits, pulks, Arctic tents & polar weight sleeping bags, parkas, snowsuits, cook sets and even pre made expedition food packs.
PolarQuest is easy to reach from International destinations. Main hub is through Stockholm to our local regional airport in Hemavan and we operate a comfotable airport to our base shuttle service.
So, if you are new to the cold, let us introduce you to our frozen playground ! If you are full on "ski to the poles" motivated, we can also help you realize those goals and equip you with essential skills that will make the journey a challenge rather than a survival epic !
PolarQuest also maintains a kennel of 40 Alaskan Huskies that we also incorporate when appropriate, into our winter courses, even if you are not here for the huskies, you will surely enjoy the nightly chorus !
Call or emai us for details of any of the courses or for info on tailored training options. Most gear rental info & bunkhouse rates are here on the website, but please do call us if you need help with stuff you don`t find.

All of us at PolarQuest look forward to helping you enjoy your cold weather adventures very soon !
