With over 28 major expeditions to date, Mark has reached the Magnetic North pole/Geomagnetic North Pole twice, has completed solo expeditions to both the Geographic North and South Poles. He has been a part of major BBC and Channel 5 documentaries and over the years has trained and led people in the extremes of the planet.
Mark sees the role of modern-day explorer as one of communication. In 2013 he ran an expedition to Mount Everest in which he spoke directly to schools and organisations worldwide via Skype – connecting with over 100,000 students through his journey.
Mark has recently returned from a journey to the Geographic North Pole.
During this complex cutting edge expedition the team filmed the harsh reality of global warming and its effect on the Arctic Ocean. If our planet continues to change at such an alarming rate expeditions such as this will soon become a thing of the past – sadly this is highly likely to happen in our lifetime.
