Alex Hibbert 

Polar Eskimo 

 

In December of 2013, Alex Hibbert led an international quartet of polar explorers to the extreme north of Arctic Greenland.

After a huge storm destroyed their intended route to the North Pole in the darkness of winter, instead of retreating, they decided to explore the beautiful but unforgiving region of Avanerriaq, the home of the Polar Eskimos. What followed was six months of harsh education, gripping adventure and twenty unruly sled dogs.

Alex Hibbert tells the story of keeping a team of twenty-somethings alive in the unforgiving barren icefields of the polar north and the fears, thrills and kindness that living with the most traditional
community of Inuit on Earth can provide.
