One of the greatest polar explorers of our time, Børge Ousland reports on his most recent expeditions to the planet’s high latitudes, with hair-raising stories, photos, and video direct from the field. With 18 trips to the North Pole and six to the South Pole to his credit, Ousland has completed more solo trips to the Poles than anyone else in history. He’ll share tales from his latest voyages, including his historic circumnavigation in 2010 of the entire Arctic in a single season.
