7 Summits, 7 Volcanoes, 2 Poles, 1 Mission: Inspiring You to be the BEST You

Fear is a limiting belief and to prove this I am preparing to undertake the ultimate test of physical, mental and spiritual endurance in 2021. A feat no human has ever achieved and that would test even the world’s most distinguished explorer.


My goal is to be the first person in the world to conquer seven summits, seven volcanoes and two poles.



I have already scaled the peaks of the highest mountains in each of the seven continents. One of only a few hundred people on the planet to achieve this monumental achievement.


But I want to push myself further.


I not only plan to undertake the Volcanic Seven Summits challenge by climbing each of the highest volcanoes across the world’s seven continents, but tread in the footsteps of legendary explorers like fellow Norwegian Roald Amundsen and reach the North and South Poles.


This will be an unprecedented adventure that pushes human endurance to the ends of the earth – quite literally.

The Seven Summits

Climbing The Seven Summits - the highest mountains on each of the world’s seven continents - is one of the most heroic challenges in mountaineering. Including myself, only few hundred people on the planet have completed this adventure.
