“In March, I attended the Newland Winter training course with a small group of friends involving skiing and camping across the Hardangervidda…. all aspects of the trip were absolutely outstanding, from start to finish…. the trip itself was fabulous from the start and we had many unplanned obstacles to counter as you do on expeditions. The weather was horrendous and our leader, Helen, remained confident, cheery and a strong leader. Despite my experience I still felt phased by the weather but Helen led in such a cool and professional way and with good humour that my fears were allayed and I found myself coping with situations that I probably wouldn’t have tackled. The greatest difference between the Newland trip and others I attended was in the encouragement of personal development, of finding the courage to find your own path and trust your own judgement which brought on my confidence with outdoor skills more than any other experience with other companies.” L.Barrell – participant, Hardangervidda ski tour

“If you have a dream and you are looking for inspiration, then this trip is the kick start to that dream. It was a truly a memorable expedition, led by two inspirational leaders, Helen & Svante.” Paul Geering – participant, winter polar training course

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for giving me a truly amazing experience. I loved every minute (well almost! Ha!) The equipment, accommodation, tuition and food was all excellent. I shall have no hesitation in recommending your company to my friends. You have given lots of thought to the trip and I thought it was very good value for money. I had a super time and it was lovely to meet the rest of the gang.” A. Fawcett – participant, Winter training 

Talks: “Helen’s lively personality and unbridled enthusiasm for her expeditions created a real buzz of excitement throughout our small school. Her very visual and ‘hands on’ presentations were inspirational and I am sure that Sturton-le-Steeple Primary School will produce a future generation of Arctic and Antarctic explorers entirely due to Helen’s recounts.” Shirley Hauser, teacher, Sturton-le-Steeple Primary School
