Journey to the ends of the earth with one of the greatest modern-day explorers
Meet Mike Horn, a world-renowned explorer and adventurer. He's swum solo down the Amazon River, circumnavigated the globe along the equator without motorized vehicles, and crossed Antarctica in the dark. Join him on his newest adventure as he travels Pole to Pole supported by Speedcast Atlas, a fully managed, end-to-end solution, in some of the most extreme and remote locations on the planet.
Mike's Journey: Three unique expeditions, all powered by Speedcast Atlas
June 13 Update: Mike Horn and his team are now on their way to K2 Base Camp. After leaving Skardu, they started their trek and reached Jola, entering the Central Karakoram National Park. After arriving in Askole (at 3,040m), a small town located in District Shigar Valley, they began their ascent and reached Paiju (at 4,050 m) yesterday just before the Baltoro Glacier. Due to snow and lack of sun over the last three days, Mike and his team were unable to charge their satellite equipment and update their social media.
We will set another date for a Live Q&A with Mike when he arrives at Base Camp. Stay tuned!
Mike will be voyaging through the Bering Strait to Kodiak Island. Continuing along the Alaskan peninsula, he’ll spend time on the Aleutian Islands, covering some of the most remote and dangerous coastline in the world.
Finally, in the last leg of his expedition, Mike will sail his vessel Pangaea across the Arctic Ocean via the North Pole taking his ship, as far north as possible. Then traversing unassisted across the floating ice in freezing temperatures to Spitzbergen.
