It began with a dream.

Our founder and president, Graham Dickson: diving in the Arctic Ocean, seeing the incredible, unique wildlife, taking in awe-inspiring landscapes and meeting the wonderful people of the North.

Bitten by the “Arctic bug”, he dreamed about how to share and make the North more accessible, so more people could experience this special place on the planet – and how to positively contribute.
