Along with Eric Larsen and Antony Jinman, Darcy St. Laurent successfully completed a trek to the North Pole during the Spring of 2010. They was flown in by ski plane to Cape Discovery on Ellesmere Island on March 3. Throughout the journey, the men experienced gruelling conditions. During the final days they didn't know if they would make it to their destination because the drift of the pack ice had slowed them down almost every night.
The trio finally reached their goal on April 23, Earth Day.

Darcy is a highly decorated veteran of the Canadian Military. He has been a combat engineer, combat diver, army parachutist, explosive ordinance disposal technician and a UN Peace Keeper in Cambodia and Bosnia. Darcy is a Search and Rescue technician, part of an elite band of Canadian Forces specialists, who rescue others in the unforgiving north.
