Welcome to Polaris Outdoor's Learning Portal

Looking forward to your Expedition?

Got lots of questions about what to expect… what kit to bring… how things are run?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered… all of the modules here are to help you to get the most out of this experience.

The Arctic is a place of transformations and growth. Below are some of the amazing achievements that can happen when you are prepared and open to personal development…

  1. From apprehensive to adventurous: You will embrace the unknown and push beyond your comfort zone, finding joy and excitement in every new experience.
  2. From individual to community-minded: You will cultivate a sense of camaraderie and cooperation within our expedition group, recognising the value of teamwork and supporting others in achieving shared goals.
  3. From observer to participant: You will actively engage with the culture, environment, and people of Finnish Lapland, immersing yourself fully in the experience and seeking opportunities for meaningful interaction and learning.
  4. From dependence to self-reliance: You will develop practical skills and resourcefulness, learning to navigate the challenges of the Arctic landscape with confidence and independence.
  5. From uncertainty to resilience: You will embrace the unpredictability of Arctic conditions, adapting quickly to changing circumstances and finding strength in resilience in the face of adversity.
  6. From disconnected to reflective: You will take time to pause and reflect on your experiences, gaining insight into yourself, your place in the world, and the connections between your actions and their consequences.
  7. From explorer to steward: You will emerge from this expedition not only as a traveller but also as a steward of the Arctic environment and advocate for its preservation and protection.
