The Spirit of Adventure….

Who is she?  No less than the spirit that urges mankind forward on the way towards knowledge.

It is our perpetual yearning to overcome difficulties and dangers, to see the hidden things, to penetrate into the regions outside our beaten track – it is the call of the unknown – the longing for the Land of Beyond, the divine force deeply rooted in the soul of man which drove the first hunters out into new regions – the mainspring perhaps of our greatest actions – of winged human thought knowing no bounds to its freedom…

My dear young friends…. Do not let your flight be clogged by all those trifles which are now considered necessities of life.  Mind, by making your baggage train longer, you clip your wings.

THE LEGEND

 

When Roald Amundsen set out to conquer the South Pole in 1911, he chose to learn from the best possible source and went to live with the Inuits to study their knowledge on cold weather survival. At the same time he was exploring cutting edge technology of his time.

COMPANY BACKGROUND

 

Inspired by this, Jørgen Amundsen questioned the way people today dress for their outdoor activities. It seamed the market had forgotten essential knowledge built up over centuries.
