ICETREK
Icetrek was founded in 1999 by Australian
polar explorer and Hobart resident
Eric Philips, and now operates as two
distinct but interconnected businesses.
Icetrek Expeditions is a world-leading
polar adventure travel company, offering
a range of expeditions, treks, tours and
flights to the Arctic and Antarctica.
Coupled with our established programs
we offer bespoke trips, polar adventure
training and a comprehensive polar
logistics service. Icetrek Expeditions was
the first company to guide both a full-length
North Pole and South Pole expedition and
is the only company to have operated
through every established gateway to
Antarctica – Punta Arenas, Cape Town,
Christchurch, Ushuaia and Hobart.
Icetrek Polar Equipment engineers
and manufactures high-end products
designed to meet every demand of the
most challenging polar expedition.
Our Flexi Ski Bindings are the most
commonly used bindings on polar
expeditions and are used extensively by
the US military. Our most recent innovation
is a multi-functional amphibious sled
designed for the polar regions’ harshest
conditions. Other products include sled
harnesses, face masks and cold-weather
clothing accessories. Our R&D and
engineering teams are avid outdoors
people, so our products are always
grounded in the reality of what does and
doesn’t work in cold-climate conditions.
With Icetrek’s head office situated in
Hobart, we are perfectly placed to meet
any adventure-based Antarctic tourism,
logistics and equipment requirements.

remote locations and can be flown fully
assembled by helicopter. Disassembled
