Finding The Answers to all your questions, including the ones you didn't think of asking.
You’ve just been offered the chance of a lifetime. An opportunity to study or explore a place so remote, few people have ever been to it before. Now would be a good time to talk to Polar Field. We can help you answer the thousands of questions that suddenly come to mind.
How are you going to get there?
How are you going to get all your equipment there?
How are you going to live there once you do?
How are you going to get back home again?
And before everything else, how are you going to get permission and permits from all the different countries and agencies that could stop you in your tracks before you ever set out?
Polar Field is a leader in Expedition Design & Consultation, Frontier Logistics and Extreme Climate Operations. We’ve been doing it for such a long time, our people have had mountain ridges and glaciers named after them in some of the most remote places on the planet.
If we don’t know the answers ourselves, we know the people who know the people who do. When you’re talking about places fewer than 100 people have been to, it really is a small world.

WHAT REMOTE, BARREN, DESOLATE, WINDSWEPT PIECE OF THE EARTH DO YOU WANT TO UNLOCK?
It usually takes a year, but we’ve done it
as quickly as two months.
Field Camp Designs
No two are ever the same.
Remote Power & Utility System Designs
It’s a good guess there’s nothing to tap into.
The places we go have lots of wind and sun, perfect for renewable energy.
Environmental Assessments & Permitting
Even if there’s no one there, there’s always
someone in charge.
If there are locals, they can help you more than you know.

There’s remote. And then there’s parachuting-in-to-build- an-airstrip remote.
Before you can start, you have to get to
the jump-off point.
You have to take everything you need with you.
Or you do without.
AIR & MARINE CHARTERS
Roads can be scarce, or nonexistent.
Docks and runways, too.
Field Camp Operations
Food, shelter, and the all-important
FIELD CAMP CONSTRUCTION
This is no place for DIY.
It’s your lifeline.
We like to think we enable science.
Nature is unpredictable. We plan for that.
Planes, snowmobiles, ice tractors, heaters,
they all take fuel.
Extreme Climate Operations
Until you actually experience polar and desert weather, you just have no idea.
Keeping the outside outside.
Sometimes aircraft get grounded.
You need backup.
Engines weren’t designed for these extremes.
Utilities & Power Systems
Operations & Maintenance
No one wants to see a heater go out.
TOWERS & INSTRUMENTATION
You’re here to collect data.
We make sure you can.
We leave nothing behind.
RISK & SAFETY MANAGEMENT
Ask us about the time a crevasse split
a camp in two.
We find those rare people who feel truly
alive at the ends of the earth.
In places cell phones don’t get bars.
Wind and solar power don’t need
