Past Expedition Reports

The following UK organisations hold a number of expedition reports which can be viewed at their offices or photocopied for a modest fee. The BMC (British Mountaineering Council), MEF (Mount Everest Foundation) and AC (Alpine Club) all offer this service. If a specific report can not be found then please contact Tangent Expeditions who may hold additional reports or can help in locating such a report. Most reports held are for UK based mountaineering expeditions only. For further reports of expeditions originating from other countries then please contact the Danish Polar Centre (DPC) or visit their superb library facility in Copenhagen, which holds the largest selection of Greenland reports.

Tangent Expedition Reports

Tangent is currently in the process of producing brief reports of all our expeditions in Greenland, Baffin Iceland and Svalbard since 1988. This process will take several years but as such reports are compiled, links will be added to this page. For now, we have begun by listing below all those expeditions which we have led ourselves, in addition to all independent and private group expeditions for which we have organised inclusive logistics packages or otherwise been involved in. Expedition Leaders’ names in brackets.
