Expedition Leaders

An Inspiring Challenge in one of the World's Wildest Regions

The Yukon remains one of the world's wildest regions: with wildlife and climate to both inspire and threaten even the most prepared explorer. It is not a place to be taken lightly and demands respect.

The success, and safety, of an expedition relies on preparation beforehand and an ever-vigilant eye to safety and progress throughout the expedition itself.

The Into The Wild 2019 expedition leaders bring together military training, expedition experience and friendship with the aim of completing an awesome expedition in recognition of colleagues and current service men and women who need their support.
