In 2004 Carl made his first major expedition to the east coast of Greenland and has never looked back since.

Carl’s expeditions have included leading three trips for the Fuchs Foundation two of which to Antarctica and one to Greenland, a crossing of the Greenland icecap using dogs and his own Greenland Icecap crossing with kites.

In the 2013-2014 Antarctic season Carl successfully guided Lewis Clarke to become the youngest person to ski to the South Pole.
