Who are we?
This is a good question. We are the ones who go into the unknown. We are the people who battle nature and take her to the edge.
We are a family, as strong as each other.
In 2004 Carl made his first major expedition to the east coast of Greenland and has never looked back since. In the same year he went on to ski the last degree to the South Pole and since these two expeditions have spent time each spring guiding expeditions in Greenland and each northern winter (Antarctica summer) guiding expeditions in Antarctica and working as an Operations Assistant for Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions.
Carl’s expeditions have included leading three trips for the Fuchs Foundation two of which to Antarctica and one to Greenland, a crossing of the Greenland icecap using dogs and his own Greenland Icecap Crossing with kites.
In the 2013-2014 Antarctic season, Carl successfully guided Lewis Clarke to become the youngest person to ski to the South Pole.

Born at 1000 meters above sea level in Haugastøl, the home of Expeditions365 in the mountains of Norway, means that Liv learned to ski before she could walk. Trained as a chef, she now divides her time between leading trips for Expeditions365 in her childhood playground the Hardangervidda Plateau and producing the famous food in the family hotel at Haugastøl.
She has also taken her fantastic cooking to Antarctica where she worked one season as a chef and two seasons as Camp Hotel Manager for Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions. Liv has also made a kite Crossing of the Greenland Icecap and climbed Kilimanjaro and Island Peak and Mera Peak in the Himalaya
Haugastøl is a tiny village at the edge of the Hardangervidda National Park, which is the largest mountain plateau in Northern Europe and just a stone throw from the Hallingskarvet National Park.
Right outside the front door is a spectacular 200 square mile mountain playground just waiting to be explored.
