At the helm of Ice Axe Expeditions, is the world’s leading polar explorer Douglas Stoup. Secluded rugged peaks have always been a home away from home for Stoup, whostarted his career as a notable expedition guide in the late eighties. A visionary, Stoup continues to push the limits in global expeditions, advocacy of protecting polar environments, and educating today’s youth on the importance of protecting the planet.
