David Reid

David Reid was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but fell in love with the Arctic, and moved to the Canadian Arctic in 1989. That same year, he founded Polar Sea Adventures, a polar guiding and adventure program, and moved to Pond Inlet, on Baffin Island, in 1991. Since then he has been involved with over 300 Arctic and Antarctic trips and expeditions. David has lead a wide variety of adventures, including dog sledding trips, arctic skiing trips, sea kayaking tours, and expeditions to the floe-edge, where the ice pack meets the sea. In the spring of 2014, David spent 10 days bicycling 130 km (80 miles) through Baffin Island’s remote Auyuittuq National Park. Most of his and Polar Sea’s recent work, however, has been with film and television projects in the arctic. Polar Sea has been part of BBC’s Planet Earth and Frozen Planet, and CBC’s The Nature of Things and Suzuki Diaries, among others. “We have used Hilleberg Atlas tents for many years, and in many configurations. Aside from excellent stability and reliability in Arctic conditions, the main reason we use Atlas tents is for the flexibility the design offers. Whether it’s a small skiing expedition where a single group shelter is required or a film project where four Atlas’s can be linked, knowing we can cater to clients needs and wants effectively and efficiently is a huge advantage. Conditions sometimes dictate that going outside (or to another tent) is a challenge when working with sensitive and often demanding equipment. Having the ability to create a single weatherproof environment where clients can sleep, eat and work with ease makes the Atlas an obvious choice for us. Working on the Arctic sea ice often brings with it challenges in terms of the necessity sometimes to relocate base camp. In such a challenging environment, shelter is the priority. The challenge, that Hilleberg has met, has been to design and manufacture a tent system that combines strength, reliability and ease of assembly.” (For more information, see polarseaadventures.com)
