An exclusive diplomatic evening with ‘the World’s Greatest Explorer’ at The Royal Geographic Society
Named by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer,’ Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes offers a personal journey through his life, from his early years to the present day. Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Sir Ranulph’s childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life and early expeditions, right through the Transglobe Expedition to his current Global Reach Challenge – his goal to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.
Sir Ranulph is also a prolific charity fundraiser, having raised over £14m for various charities. He has run seven marathons on seven consecutive days in seven continents after having a heart attack.
