Land of Legends

For millenia the location of "Thule" has stirred the imagination of explorers, intellectuals and poets.

Ongoing Treks

Recognized as leaders in ongoing Arctic exploration... our expedition members are deemed pioneers in this little known yet important corner at the top of our planet.

Participants

Scientists, Adventurers... if you're an avid mountaineer or trekker, and can take care of yourself in the wilderness, consider joining us on our next expedition. Group size is nine due to aircraft weight limits.

Funding

PROJECT FUNDING

Previous Arctic Thule expeditions have been funded by expedition members and benefactors. With the increasing price of aviation fuel, the cost of flying to Greenland’s North Coast has surpassed the financial means of expedition members.

Hence, Arctic Thule expeditions now rely on the generous gifts from interested individuals, corporations, and foundations.

For those interested in supporting the expedition, gifts are being made through the Golden Gate Audubon Society in San Francisco, which coordinates funding and underwriting of Arctic Thule expeditions. For more details, please contact:
