Two Poles,
One Journey,
World First

GOODGEAR was established in 2019 by a group of global expedition, technology and media partners with a landmark challenge of the first circumnavigation of the world with the crossing of both poles, without the use of flight.

This expedition can be compared to one of the greatest moments in exploration history.

In late 2022, GOODGEAR will attempt to create a new double Polar history without the use of flight. Never before has an Expedition like this been attempted or entered the minds of explorers.

For over a year, the GOODGEAR team will be faced with the hostile challenges of open water, ice, darkness, desert, harsh mountain terrains and temperatures that range from -50°C to +50°C.

Only the experience and commitment of the GOODGEAR Expedition team and its partners, will lead the team to success.

Arctic Crossing

The Arctic region is a unique area among Earth’s ecosystems. The cultures in the region and the Arctic indigenous peoples have adapted to its cold and extreme conditions. Life in the Arctic includes zooplankton and phytoplankton, fish and marine mammals, birds, land animals, plants and human societies

Mar 2023

North Pole

The North Pole is the northernmost point on the Earth, lying diametrically opposite the South Pole. It defines geodetic latitude 90° North, as well as the direction of true north. At the North Pole all directions point south; all lines of longitude converge there, so its longitude can be defined as any degree value.

Jun 2023

European Tour

The Expedition will traverse many European countries, visiting capital cities and centres of innovation and positive technology.

Sep 2023

Middle East & Africa

The Expedition will be used to test the latest scientific and technological innovations in the remotest and most hostile regions and with some of the most marginal communities in the world.

Nov 2023

Cape of Good Hope

The Cape of Good Hope is a rocky headland on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa. A common misconception is that the Cape of Good Hope is the southern tip of Africa. This misconception was based on the misbelief that the Cape was the dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
