The very reason that Nansen and his fellow Norwegian polar explorers was so successful was meticulous planning, planning and yet more planning. We have standards adhering to everything we do. All installations we use are certified from the national/regional/local relevant body. All equipment we use are checked and maintained regularly and are in proper shape and ready to use. Our staff are trained and certified instructors for the activity in question and we always have staff on site trained in first aid. All Norwegian staff have police certificate, and all guests receive lists of what they are expected to bring, weather forecasts etc.
