Mike Horn is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest explorers and extreme adventurers in the modern era!

Jungle fever in the Amazon in 1997, Middle Earth conquered from Africa’s to Brazil, the Amazon Jungle, the Andes, the Ecuador, Congo,… and finally arrived in Gabon. Everything by foot, bicycle, canoe and in a 28 foot Trimaran.

A solo circumnavigation of the Arctic Circle by boat, kayak, ski kite and on foot lasting over two years was the blueprint for the icy Arktos Expedition in 2002.

In 2006, Mike and Norwegian explorer Borge Ousland became the first men to travel unaided by dogs or motorized transport from Cape Artichesky in Russia to the North Pole during the permanent darkness of the Arctic months. They made this exploit in only 60 days!

“The impossible exists only until we find a way to make it possible”, Mike Horn
