OUR SERVICES
 

Everyone says they go to the ends of the earth for their clients. But how many actually do?

 

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.
