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…).

Pangaea: young explorers involved in the environmental movement

Since autumn 2008, we have shared with you the unique experiences of groups of young explorers on their expeditions with Mike Horn. To date, seven expeditions have been undertaken to the four corners of the globe (Antarctica, New Zealand Malaysia, India, Himalaya, China and Russia) and five more are planned by July 2012.
The objective of these expeditions is to teach young explorers about their natural environment and encourage them to find solutions that will, tomorrow, improve life on Earth.

 

Pangaea: The Adventure continues

The Pangaea expedition to the Kamchatka region of Russia has ended. Despite some sketchy weather, the young explorers managed to take full advantage of their expedition's final days. The team shared some unforgettable moments with a group of dogsledders and their dogs, climbed a volcano and enjoyed soaking in the hot springs in Petropavlovsk, the capital of Kamchatka.
