During the New York International Auto Show in front of the legendary Explorers Club in Manhattan the starting signal was given today for Mike Horn’s new expedition “Pole2Pole” with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
The extreme athlete and adventurer is aiming to travel around the world on a unique voyage of discovery – from Europe to Africa, the Antarctic, Oceania, Asia, the Arctic, North America, and back again to Europe. As on his successful K2 expedition last year, the Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador will be relying on the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. Furthermore, he will cover parts of the route with his sailing boat PANGAEA, on skis and on foot. Since the PANGAEA expedition between 2008 and 2012 Mike Horn has been closely connected with Mercedes-Benz.
The objective of his expeditions is to explore culture and nature in remote regions and to share his experiences and learnings with people throughout the world. The entire expedition “Pole2Pole” can be followed on the digital and social media channels of Mike Horn and Mercedes-Benz.
