Tom Avery

Adventure has been in Tom's blood all his life. A pioneering climber, ski mountaineer and one of only 41 people in history to have reached both the North and South Poles on foot, Tom is one of the UK's foremost explorers.

Tom has organised and led over a dozen expeditions across the globe and is the youngest Briton to have been to both Poles.

Tom is best known for leading the expedition described by the Guinness Book of Records as "the fastest surface journey to the North Pole", which retraced Robert Peary and Matthew Henson's footsteps to the Top of the World.
