Polar Adventurers in York Tonight
11:17am 28th November 2012
Polar Explorer and Walking With the Wounded Champion Inge Solheim is coming to York tonight. Its part of a free lecture series, Speak On: Adventure, set to take place today, Wednesday 28th November in the Library at The Royal York Hotel.
The first Speak On: Adventure event features one of the most experienced polar guides of all time and a young trail blazing mountaineer and adventurer, who will be talking about their experiences.
Speaking in York on Wednesday 28th at the Royal York Hotel from 7pm:
Inge Solheim is the polar explorer who led a group of wounded servicemen and Prince Harry on an expedition to the North Pole.
Ed Farelly is heralded as a leader in the next generation of explorers, the variety of his expeditions is impressive, even more so when you consider he is still in his early twenties.
Between them they have climbed some of the world's highest peaks, trekked the Arctic circle and Norwegian Fjords, base jumped, rafted in the Grand Canyon and raced a car 10,000km across 16 countries.
In the first of the new talks, there will be a Whisky Tasting and Nosing session, experienced by adventurers from Walking With The Wounded when they set the World Record for the World’s Highest Whisky Tasting held on Mount Everest.
It's a free event tonight 28th November, 7:00pm - 9:00pm, Station Road York, North Yorkshire YO24 1AA:
