Described by the Guinness Book of Record’s as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, British author and explorer Ranulph Fiennes has led a fascinating life. Having broken several world records and the holder of numerous impressive endurance awards, Fiennes is truly an inspiration to modern day travellers and explorers. Indeed not only has he braved countless life threatening incidents, along the way he has raised over £14 million for UK charities receiving an OBE in 1993 for his charitable services and was named the UK’s top celebrity fundraiser.
Fiennes has led over 30 expeditions, discovered the lost city of Ubar and at the age of 65 became the oldest Briton to conquer Everest. Not only was he the first man to reach both the north and south poles by foot, he is also the first man to cross Antarctic and Arctic ocean on surface as well as the first to circumnavigate the world on its polar axis. Not only has he braved sub zero temperature losing multiple fingers to frostbite which he self-amputated upon his return, in 2003, just months after suffering a massive heart attack, Fiennes ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents.
