Are you looking for a challenge?  Do you want to put something
amazing on your CV?  Do you want to be the next inspirational leader in education? If you work in education and want to inspire young minds then have you ever considered going on an expedition with your peers? Look no further than Terra Nova Expeditions, an ATOL-protected expedition company, where we tailor make once in a lifetime trips across the far reaches of the globe.

Terra Nova Expedition Services & Our Ethos

All of our expeditions are bespoke and begin with a blank piece of paper, a pencil and a map. We don’t have brochures because we tailor each trip based upon the group’s aims and objectives. For our 2020 Greenland expedition, we are working with the Fuchs Foundation, a charity with the aim of creating leaders in education.

For those who are thinking about this expedition, I would recommend it.  I was on a Fuchs Expedition a few years back and it was the best expedition and experience I ever had!

On our next expedition, you will venture over to East Greenland in July / August 2020 and undertake a three-week wilderness expedition conducting science projects, whilst being led by experienced polar leaders. Our leaders have worked with us for several years and have a huge wealth of experience and wilderness training.
