For over two decades, Ice Axe Expeditions has offered life-changing experiences that our customers never forget.

Ice Axe Expeditions is an award-winning adventure travel company which pioneered human-powered experiences in some of the most remote corners of the globe.
At the helm of Ice Axe Expeditions is one of the world’s leading polar explorers, Doug Stoup. Secluded rugged peaks have always been a home-away-from-home for Stoup, who started his career as a distinguished expedition guide in the late 1980’s. Stoup is a visionary who continues to push the limits of global expedition, advocacy of protection of polar environments and education of today’s youth on the importance of protecting the planet.
