Arctic Expeditions


2014 Arctic Expedition with Joe Henderson

Joe Henderson and his team of malamutes explore some of the world’s most pristine lands, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The purpose of the expeditions is to explore the vast expanses of Alaska’s North Slope country, view the unique wildlife, and experience raw adventure. Additionally, Joe records snow depth and ground condition data along with photographical documentation of an otherwise undocumented landscape in wintertime to benefit scientific research and provide a reference for future generations.

Joe has spent over 32 winters in Alaska’s backcountry with his malamutes and has yet to see it all.  To quote Joe, “I’ve mushed tens of thousands of miles in Alaska’s arctic and have only seen a portion of it.  It would take two-hundred years to cover it all.  I just wish I had two, maybe three lifetimes to explore it.”
