Our Travel Safety department assess the safety of field camp locations, travel routes, and climbing objectives using on-the-ground surveys, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and radar and optical images. They can provide GPS tracks for known routes (e.g. Hercules Inlet-South Pole; Union Glacier-Lake Ellsworth) and are available to help pre-plan over-snow traverses through less-known areas. Contact us early, so that we can help you ground truth your expedition or project plan.
Our guides are some of the most experienced in the business, providing technical guiding and field safety services. You can hire guide(s) to accompany your group into the field, request skills training at Union Glacier Camp before you head out; or both.
