October

Mike Horn


Modern day explorer Mike Horn and renowned Norwegian Arctic explorer Borge Ousland walked to the North Pole in the Arctic winter without assistance or re-supply. For two months they walked in total darkness and often on paper-thin ice, climbing huge blocks of razor-sharp ice and crossing large areas of freezing Arctic water by swimming, all the while they could feel the hidden gaze of the nearby polar bears upon them.

After 60 days and exactly 3 hours they arrived at the North Pole, making them the first men ever to arrive at the Pole unaided and in the Arctic winter.

29 October: Walking on Thin Ice
