Mike Horn's Next Dream
Outside Magazine feature article on Mike Horn's next mammoth adventure
Explorer, Educator, Adventurer
I've spent the last two decades exploring the furthest corners of the Earth, testing the limits of the human body and promoting science and exploration in environments that are being affected most rapidly by climate change.
My book “Vouloir Toucher les Etoiles” first hit the shelves a year ago and I couldn’t be happier at how well it was received! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the next book just as much @xo_editions
Let’s not take for granted, the quality of life of humans relies on the continued existence of

Expedition / Pangaea
Why the name ‘Pangaea’? Pangaea is defined as a “hypothetical super-continent that included all the landmasses of the earth before the Triassic Period”.

K2 Expedition 2013
It was a long wait for Mike to get back to Pakistan but he is finally there and ready to attempt the ascension of the second highest Himalayan peak, K2. Known especially for its difficulty, the peak has been nicknamed by mountaineers as ‘The Savage Peak’. Alpinists that affront the clmb to the summit must […]
Expedition / Himalaya Expedition

Expedition / North Pole Winter Night

Shark Project – Final Blog
October 15, 2016
The boat buzzes with Young Explorers, each with a job to leave Pangaea, our home for the past ten days, in a condition Mike is happy with, and we sit and reflect on the Pole2Pole Shark Project. To try and find one word to describe it would be difficult but the word that comes to […]
