Adventurer & Author

Alastair Humphreys spent over four years cycling round the world, a journey of 46,000 miles through 60 countries and 5 continents – an epic journey described by Sir Ranulph Fiennes as ‘the first great adventure of the new millennium.’

Alastair has walked across southern India, rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, run the Marathon des Sables, completed a crossing of Iceland by foot and packraft, trekked in the Arctic, and walked across the Empty Quarter retracing the route of one of his heroes, Wilfred Thesiger, 1000 miles in 45 days through the desert in Oman. Alastair is driven to try new challenges in different environments, consciously steering himself away from becoming an expert in any one niche of adventure.

Alastair has published eight books (including three for children) and he is a keen photographer, award-winning short filmmaker, popular blogger and motivational speaker.
