BEN SAUNDERS – POLAR EXPLORER

Play Now to find out how you can become an Explorer like Ben!

Ben Saunders is a polar explorer and a record-breaking long-distance skier. Since 2001, Ben has skied more than 6,000km (3,730 miles or 142 marathons!) in the Polar Regions.

He is one of three in history – and the youngest - to ski solo to the North Pole. He holds the record for the longest solo Arctic journey by a Briton and for the longest ever polar journey on foot.

In February 2014, Ben completed a 1,800-mile journey on foot from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back, retracing for the first time Captain Scott’s ill-fated Terra Nova route.
