“Pole2Pole” – around the world once.
more about 'Pole2Pole'
After extensive equipment testing in March in wintry Canada, the “Pole2Pole” adventure will start on 6 May 2016 at the Yacht Club in Monaco. From there Mike Horn will sail to Namibia on his expedition boat PANGAEA. The expedition will continue in the G-Class through the world’s oldest desert, the Namib desert, on the Namibian coast. The route then passes through the Okavango delta in Botswana, the world’s largest inland delta, and on to Cape Town in South Africa. From there PANGAEA will take him to the Antarctic, which he will cross on skis. Mike Horn will then sail the Pacific through the islands of Oceania to Asia, where he will explore parts of New Zealand and Australia. In Papua New Guinea the G-Class will await him for an expedition through unspoilt equatorial forests.
Once in Asia, a further overland expedition in the legendary off-road vehicle leads Horn through the tundra in Kamchatka, before he makes his way to the North Pole. The extreme athlete will cross the Arctic and then Greenland on skis and in a kayak. He will then sail back from the world's largest island to Monaco in the PANGAEA.
