About the Author

Ben Saunders is one of the world’s leading polar explorers, and a record-breaking long-distance skier who has covered more than 6,000km (3,700 miles) on foot in the Polar Regions since 2001. His accomplishments include leading The Scott Expedition, the longest human-powered polar journey in history, and the first completion of the expedition that defeated Captain Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton, a 105-day round-trip from Ross Island on the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back again.

Ben is the third person in history to ski solo to the North Pole, and holds the record for the longest solo Arctic journey by a Briton. He is also the founding editor and publisher of Avaunt Magazine, a global brand ambassador for Land Rover, an honorary member of the Cordon Rouge Club, an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, a patron of British Exploring, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and an acclaimed keynote speaker, described by TED as ‘A master storyteller’.
