Adventurer and explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes is heading for the Highlands and is due to appear at Eden Court Empire Theatre in Inverness in October
One of the world’s most renowned explorers will be in Inverness this year to talk about his life and adventures.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who was named by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s greatest living explorer, will appear at Eden Court Empire Theatre on October 18.
His appearance is part of the Sir Ranulph Fiennes: Living Dangerously tour.
A spokesman said: “Sir Ranulph Fiennes: Living Dangerously offers a personal journey through the legendary explorer’s life, from his early years to the present day, showcasing his pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.
“Amongst his many record-breaking achievements, writer and poet Sir Ranulph was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.
“Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously spans 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.”
Throughout his life his many endeavours have pushed his endurance levels to the very limits, inspiring generations and an unparalleled story to tell.
The explorer himself said: “I’ve been privileged to see so many parts of our planet, and I’m looking forward to being able to get back on the road and share stories I’ve amassed in that time with audiences around the UK.”
