Explore Like a Norwegian
Tue September 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Gearing up for his South Pole expedition, Roald Amundsen couldn’t find outdoor gear that would withstand the extreme and variable conditions, so he constructed his own. Learning from the locals, he outfitted his team with cold weather gear made from reindeer hides and had seal skin gear constructed in Greenland. Fridtjof Nansen also had to be inventive on his expedition to the North Pole, constructing outerwear out of a discarded sleeping bag.
Luckily, times and technology have changed and modern explorers like you have two iconic Norwegian brands – Hurtigruten and Helly Hansen – to help you explore safely and comfortably. Hurtigruten has been exploring the world’s most remote places since 1893. And Helly Hansen has been outfitting great explorers and outdoor professionals since 1877. So we both know a thing or two about what it takes to plan and execute a successful expedition: inspiration, preparation, luck, persistence, and great gear.
Throughout this webinar, Helly Hansen and Hurtigruten will share our combined 264 years of expedition knowledge. Join us to:
• Hear about amazing destinations that will help you connect with your inner explorer and be comfortable while you’re doing it
• Learn about cold weather expeditions in Antarctica and how to stay comfortable in the most extreme environment on Earth
• Learn about warm weather expeditions in South America and get tips on staying cool and safe in variable conditions and climate zones
• Gain strategies for layering and tips to dress appropriately for the climate from professional explorers
All registered attendees will be entered for two prizes: a special savings on a Hurtigruten cruise and a Helly Hansen down jacket.
Two winners will be chosen at the end of the webinar, and the winner must be present at the time of the drawing to win.
