Vatnajokull expedition

OtherJames Hipkiss

Hello all, I am fairly new to EC having only found the website a few weeks ago. I am looking for a location where I can practise polar skills by myself, by that I mean unguided only with a friend. We are both competent alpine climbers, but would like to practise the skills of pulk pulling etc that would be needed in anything more 'extreme'.

My current thought is the Vatnajkull in Iceland. Could anyone advise on this or a suitable alternative? My aim eventually would be to build up slowly to a longer expedition in either Russia or Greenland.
