Adventurer of the year 2012: Alastair Humphreys Nominated!

29th November 2011

Alastair Humprehys – epic adventurer - has been named as one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year 2012.

Since riding his bike around the world, Al has continued to seek out new adventures, including crossing Iceland’s rugged glacial highlands on foot and pack-raft; walking the length of India’s holy Kaveri river, and he is currently planning the longest unsupported return journey to the South Pole.

In 2011 Alastair’s quest to “break down the elitism in adventure” has caught the attention of the National Geographic. He has developed a concept to demonstrate that adventure is within everybody’s reach, no matter their means.

Alastair's microadventures included hiking around the M25, swimming along the Thames, and using public transport to get out of the city and sleep out underneath the stars, spending four days living off the land.

“Each trip ticked all the boxes of adventure. It was cold. It was physically challenging. I talked to people I wouldn’t have otherwise met,” says Humphreys.
