♦ Description : “”Crossing Antarctica was my childhood dream. I decided to face this white immensity by taking a route never explored, the longest one can envisage: 5 100km of an almost rectilinear trace, with, in front of me, the solitude, the fields of crevasses, snowstorms, freezing temperatures.

This crossing will oblige me, I know it, to beat speed records so as not to be swallowed up by the winter. I’m predicted hell, a race against death. After three weeks of boat to reach the continent in the middle of the icebergs, I firmly plant my sticks in the ice, my skis parallel, a sleigh of 256kg attached to the shoulders.

For a moment, my heart is tightening. Like a wave beginning to the soul. Then I think of Cathy, my wife, who, before joining the stars, had whispered, “Live for me, Mike, live for both of us. I will not look back. I will look in front. Armed with my only ski-kite and my calves, I am far from imagining the event that awaits me. ”

Mike Horn

On February 7, 2017, at 10:50 pm Mike Horn, alone and unassisted, completed his Antarctic crossing. 5 100km in 57 days in extreme conditions that pushed him to the end of his resistance.

An incredible fight against the elements that makes this 51-year-old adventurer the greatest explorer of modern times.

Description : “Traverser l’Antarctique, c’était mon rêve d’enfant. J’ai décidé d’affronter cette immensité blanche en empruntant un itinéraire jamais exploré, le plus long que l’on puisse envisager : 5 100 km d’une trace presque rectiligne, avec, devant moi, la solitude, les champs de crevasses, les tempêtes de neige, les températures glaciales. Cette traversée m’obligera, je le sais, à battre des records de vitesse pour ne pas être englouti par l’hiver. On me prédit l’enfer, une course contre la mort. Après trois semaines de bateau pour rejoindre le continent au milieu des icebergs, je plante fermement mes bâtons dans la glace, mes skis bien parallèles, un traîneau de 256 kg fixé aux épaules. L’espace d’un instant, mon cœur se serre. Comme un début de vague à l’âme. Je repense alors à Cathy, ma femme, qui, avant de rejoindre les étoiles, m’avait soufflé : « Vis pour moi, Mike, vis pour nous deux. » Je ne me retournerai plus. Je regarderai devant. Armé de mon seul ski-kite et de mes mollets, je suis loin d’imaginer l’épreuve qui m’attend.” Mike Horn Le 7 février 2017, à 22 h 50, Mike Horn, seul et sans assistance, achève sa traversée de l’Antarctique. 5 100 km en 57 jours dans des conditions extrêmes qui l’ont poussé au bout de sa résistance. Un incroyable combat contre les éléments qui fait de cet aventurier de 51 ans le plus grand explorateur des temps modernes.

Description : In August 2002, Mike Horn set out on a mission that bordered on the impossible: to travel 12,000 miles around the globe at the Arctic Circle - alone, against all prevailing winds and currents, and without motorized transportation. Conquering the Impossible is the gripping account of Horn's grueling 27-month expedition by sail and by foot through extreme Arctic conditions that nearly cost him his life on numerous occasions. Enduring temperatures that ranged to as low as -95 degrees Fahrenheit, Horn battled hazards including shifting and unstable ice that gave way and plunged him into frigid waters, encounters with polar bears so close that he felt their breath on his face, severe frostbite in his fingers, and a fire that destroyed all of his equipment and nearly burned him alive. Complementing the sheer adrenaline of Horn's narrative are the isolated but touching human encounters the adventurer has with the hardy individuals who inhabit one of the remotest corners of the earth. From an Inuit who teaches him how to build an igloo to an elderly Russian left behind when the Soviets evacuated his remote Arctic town, Horn finds camaraderie, kindness, and assistance to help him survive the most unforgiving conditions. This awe-inspiring account is a page-turner and an Arctic survival tale in one. Most of all, it's a testament to one man's unrelenting desire to push the boundaries of human endurance.
