100 Pole Trekking Transport

from:

In order to reach out of the way destinations, you have to find a means of travel. Then, when you get to your vacation location that is off the beaten path, you may need to find another means of transportation, as you often do not want to hike every last mile, even on a trekking vacation. Especially for pole trekking, transport needs to be acquired. While you can secure flights to some locations, there are places that you will never find an airport or a place to land an airplane.

Pole trekking transport can put you at small landing locations in Antarctica, where helicopter pads have been built and kept up for travel use. Helicopters and boats, be it ocean liner, barge, or small boat, are probably the best pole trekking transport with access to the frozen continent that is the southernmost point of the world. In regards to treks along the outer rim of the North Pole, you can usually find a flight to Norway, the point from which many of these tours embark. From there, trains, buses, and hiking are the forms of transport that will get you to the sea, where your journey will find you utilizing sailboats and other aquatic pole trekking transport.

When you reach your destination, much of the means of travel will be by foot, which is something that should be signaled simply by the fact that it is referred to as “trekking”. Climbing through mountainous regions and icy buildups using climbing tools will also be required. Mountain boots with spats or rubber boots are suggested to get through many rugged terrains and freezing waters. Most animals are not accustomed to the climate and cannot be used to assist in pole trekking transport devices. However, during warmer months, some sled dogs may be used to assist in pulling along supplies through the open frozen countryside.

In some parts of both destinations, there may be access to four-wheel drive vehicles made to handle the terrain and drive short distances across ice or off-road, where there is no pavement or designated trails. These can provide additional pole trekking transport to and from research facilities and camps where trekking individuals may stay the first and last nights upon arrival.

Obviously, unless you live in a location from which one of these expeditions embarks, some flight will be required, and depending on your location, it may be a long flight or several legs of a journey. However, chances are that the eventuality of your pole trekking transport will rest with either a helicopter or boat of some sort.
