The Pax Arctica - On the Shoulders of Shackleton Expedition.




- Expedition led by Luc Hardy
- Luc will embark in this journey with eight men and women from France, England and Switzerland, all coming from varied backgrounds: scientist, polar guide, professional adventurers, soldiers, sportsmen and cameraman.
- Departure : Ushuaia on Oct 9
- Return : Nov 15, 2014.

- This Pax Arctica expedition has two main objectives:

- To retrace Shackleton’s 800-mile route between Elephant Island and the island of South Georgia (including climbing/trekking across the island as his group did), and
- To collect scientific data, including oceanographic (CO2, temperature, salinity, current, etc.) and fauna, flora and soil observations and samples.





The Pax Arctica - On the Shoulders of Shackleton Expedition is now a Flag Expedition.
