Lt Col Henry Worsley MBE (1960 – 2016)

Henry Worsley died in January 2016 and his ashes will be laid to rest in Grytviken, South Georgia. Henry was a great Polar hero, who was tragically taken ill having walked 913 miles across Antarctica unsupported and unassisted.

Ice Tracks Expeditions will be carrying the ashes on a special 18-night commemorative voyage to honour and celebrate the life of this much loved man who strode in the footsteps of Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton; the latter also, of course, buried in South Georgia. For more information on this trip, please contact Ice Tracks.
