Discover how Sir Ernest Shackleton set-sail on a humble little lifeboat across a vast ocean in a bid to rescue his marooned shipmates. Today, his journey is rightly considered the greatest rescue journey in polar history. Our hands on traditional sailing experience will enlighten you towards the insurmountable challenges they faced.
Walk in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton, Lawrence of Arabia or George Mallory, we are specialists in organising historically inspired expeditions to South Georgia, Norway, Switzerland and Jordan.
In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton trained for his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition amongst the high mountains and glaciers of Norway. Ever wondered how on Earth they survived the freezing temperatures, inadequate diet and primitive equipment?
Lawrence of Arabia's irregular warfare tactics became the central strategy in altering the course of WW1 in the Middle East. Join us on a bespoke camel trekking expeditions across the rose-red desert of Jordan.
Ever wondered what happened to George Mallory and Sandy Irvine during that last fateful climb to summit Mt. Everest? We believe we have pieced the puzzle back together! Join us in Switzerland to put world leading forensic science, engineering and mountaineering skill into practice.
In January 2013, Seb joined the 'Shackleton Epic' team, which was setup at the behest of The Hon. Alexandra Shackleton, granddaughter of Sir Ernest Shackleton to commemorate the centenary of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914-1917).
Seb has faithfully recreated Shackleton's death defying small boat voyage across the Southern Ocean and Lawrence of Arabia's camel trek across the Arabian Peninsula to attack the port city of Aqaba. An expert on the 1924 Mount Everest Expedition, he plans to visit Tibet on his next adventure.
