Expedition Blog

2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE, the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles. Swan has dedicated his life to the preservation of Antarctica by the promotion of recycling, renewable energy and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change.

Awaiting the Team


Breaching through the clouds the water-way below us is revealed, it starts to look like it might be our landing strip as we continue to drop towards it. This is how the Beagle Channel reveals itself to us as we descend towards Ushuaia, finally landing at the airport, we have made it... 

Tucked away between mountains this modest city doesn't look like much to outsiders, but it has a lot to offer.  For us it has huge significance, Ushuaia; Southern-most city in the world, is also know as the gateway to Antarctica. It is now only a matter of days until our participants will be boarding the ship, getting accustomed to their new home for the next 11 days that will take them on the adventure of a lifetime, to the very ends of the earth.

As we look up at the hotel we will all be staying in, perched on the hilltop overlooking the Beagle Channel, all we are missing now are our international team of participants.

We are eaglarly awaiting their arrival.

    It's been three years, and still memories of #IAE2013 are as fresh as the Antarctic waters. Salute to Drake and Antarctica Gods. Glad to see a huge delegation joining from India. Have a safe journey team! Love to Penguins and Seals from India. Team Inspire. Team Inspire. Team Inspire.
