Mike Horn: world’s greatest modern day explorer
Play • 28 min

Mike Horn is globally acknowledged as the world’s greatest modern day explorer. From swimming the Amazon River solo and unsupported to an unmotorised circumnavigation of the globe at the equator, Mike’s list of accomplishments as a solo explorer is unparalleled. 

In two decades, he has seen more of the Earth than possibly any other human. He walked to the North Pole during darkness and has scaled the world’s 8,000 metre peaks, including a recent attempt to paraglide K2.

In 2008 the yacht “Pangaea” was born so that young adults could experience sailing and explore the natural world. Over 200,000 miles and multiple sailing circumnavigations later, Mike has created a great environmental initiative to educate a global network of youth.
