Expedition / Pangaea

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”. Then Pangaea broke apart during the Triassic and Jurassic Periods and formed what we now know as the Earth’s separate continents. Mike Horn chose the name Pangaea for his new expedition as […]

Expedition / K2 Expedition 2013

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

Himalaya Expedition

I’ve always had a fascination for mountaineering, but never actually got around to it seriously. Then an unexpected phone-call from legendary climbers Jean Troillet, Fred Roux and Olivier Roduit quickly changed this. They invited me to join them to climb four Himalayan summits of 8000m – an offer I excitedly could not refuse and we […]

Expedition / North Pole Winter Night

North Pole Winter Night

My expedition in January 2006 gave new meaning to the term ‘walking on thin ice’. It was an exciting and daunting new challenge. But one I could not do alone by law. Thankfully, renowned Norwegian arctic explorer, Borge Ousland took little convincing and joined me in a heartbeat. Together, we’d walk to the North Pole […]

Expedition / Arktos

Arktos

Covering twenty thousand kilometres in twenty seven months now awaited me. This was to be a two year and three month experience of ultimate extremities – and one I was relishing. But I’d be alone, without motorised transport or dogs – and in the treacherous Arctic Circle. I set out from the Nordkapp of Norway, […]

April 21, 2014

He’s faced-off polar bears, crocs and K2 and puts his survival down to listening to his inner voice. There are not many adventurers who are living legends, but Mike Horn is one of them. He’s circumnavigated the globe along the equator, swum the Amazon, trekked to the North Pole in winter and recently taken to […]

Makalu Base Camp

April 18, 2014

Yes!! We arrived safe and sound at the lower base camp of Makalu at 4’800m. Our tents are pitched in front of Makalu and I feel dwarfed by its size towering out far above us at 8’463m. From here we will finalize and repack the equipment we will need at high base camp. The sherpas […]
