    Eric Larsen

    Boulder, CO


    You can usually find Eric Larsen somewhere snowy and cold.

    Polar adventurer, mountaineer, and expedition guide, Eric Larsen has spent the past 20 years traveling in some of the most remote and extreme environments on the planet. To date, Eric has completed more North and South Pole expeditions than any other American in history. In his long list of achievements, Eric has completed the first even summer expedition to the North Pole, as well as a world record expedition to the South Pole, North Pole and the top of Mt. Everest – all within a 365-day period. In May of 2014, Eric and team mate Ryan Waters traveled unsupported from northern Ellesmere Island to the Geographic North Pole in 53 days in what realistically will be the last North Pole expedition in history. The journey was featured on Animal Planet in the US and Discovery Channel globally.

    In September 2015, Eric and Ryan also completed the first ascent of Jabou Ri, a 6,000 meter peak in the remote Rolwaling region of Nepal. His other expeditions include dog sledding in the Canadian Arctic, training trips to Hudson Bay, and countless dog sled races (including the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon). He has also ridden his bike across the United States, been a backcountry ranger in Alaska and a whitewater canoe guide in Colorado.

    Eric has dedicated his adult life to sharing his love for the outdoor world with others.

    Fun fact: His current no shower record is 72 days.
