Evac insurance for Arctic Kayak expedition

EC CommunityJames Hipkiss

A group of us are planning a 2000km sea kayak expedition in the Arctic next year. We are struggling to find anyone to insure us for the trip - Global Rescue is the closest we have gotten, they will insure for evac up to 80 degrees North but we are planning on paddling up close to 81 degrees north. The few companies that I have found which might cover all only cover for UK citizens which isn't going to work- two of us are from New Zealand and one from Norway. Does anyone have any suggestions?
