British Exploring - BE
I got started in the field of polar travel when, age 17, a charity called the British Schools Exploring Society took me to Svalbard for six weeks. They are still going and are now called BE.
This is the link to the FB page of the book, which I up date from time to time with Shackleton related news and other articles.
If you’re seeking a modern day polar hero look no further than Felicity Aston MBE.
My recommended operator for polar tours is Hurtigruten.
To learn more about Jan Baalsrud, a good starting point is Wikipedia.
