Mike Horn

World Greatest Explorer | TEDx Speaker

Who am I

Mike Horn is globally acknowledged as the world’s greatest modern-day explorer. From swimming the Amazon River solo and unsupported to an unmotorized circumnavigation of the globe at the equator, Mike’s list of accomplishments as a solo explorer is unparalleled. For 25 years, Mike Horn has inspired and educated the world by pushing the limits of human ability through a series of groundbreaking expeditions, always naturally powered and often solo.

During his “Arktos” expedition, he walked the Arctic Circle solo and was already dreaming of his next expedition. He built a “4×4 of the sea” in his mind over the two-plus years of walking on the ice in minus 60-degree weather. ”Pangaea” was born and in 2008 Mike embarked on a four expedition that served as a powerful platform from which young adults experienced and explored the natural world. Over 200,000 miles and multiple circumnavigations were well documented as this environmental initiative to educate a global network of youth. Now he has several new projects on the horizon. And they are bigger and more inspiring than ever.

‘If you are afraid of losing, you can never win’, is the philosophy with which Mike Horn has lived his life and conquered the impossible.
