Pangaea North Pole Expedition: News From Mike Horn and the Young Explorers

On May 4, 2011, the Young Explorers along with the rest of Mike Horn's team landed at their point of departure for their journey to the North Pole. For the first few days the weather was mild, which allowed everyone to gradually get used to this new environment they would be immersed in for more than 15 days.

The next Pangaea adventure has started: destination North Pole

On Thursday, April 28, 2011, an adventure to the North Pole started for the seven young people who remained at Château d'Oex following the selection process in February. Mike Horn immediately overwhelmed the young explorers by tasking them with a very important stage of this type of expedition: taking an inventory of everything (shoes, skis, harnesses, clothing…).
