EXPLORERS POD | PART 1 George Bullard world record-breaking explorer, endurance athlete
George Bullard is a world record-breaking explorer, endurance athlete, motivational speaker, brand ambassador for Bullard’s Gin & partner at IGO Adventures.
To date he has covered almost 2,000 miles on foot in the polar regions and completed countless extraordinary expeditions around the world, guiding 350 people of all age groups in the planet’s most remote and hostile areas.
At 14 George was part of a team to swim the English Channel, circumnavigate Barbados and New York’s Manhattan Island and latterly, swim the length of Lake Zurich. During this time George was also ranked #1 in the UK for Tetrathlon. After leaving school George spent 2 months on the Antarctic archipelago of South Georgia followed by George’s largest polar expedition to date:
At the age of 19, George achieved a feat that explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest living explorer, described as ‘genuinely ground-breaking’, completing the world’s longest fully unsupported polar journey of all time. Since then, George has been guiding expeditions in the Amazon rainforest, the Indian subcontinent, the Greenland Icecap, Svalbard, cycling across Europe, climbing unnamed peaks, driving NW Africa, and sailing across oceans (southern, north Atlantic, and Pacific) amongst others.
Sept 2016 saw George complete a second world first: 66 days in a kayak crossing the ferocious North Atlantic Ocean from Greenland to Scotland. The purpose? To test the theory that Inuits may have made the same journey in AD1700.
George’s next project demands a return to sub -40C temperatures for the Dark Ice Project. A pivotal barometer to the health of our planet, more is known about the surface of the moon than the Arctic ocean in winter. Decisions affecting our planet’s future rely on new data collected first hand by George and his team while surviving in a sunless Arctic winter.
The gathering of the original evidence and the opportunity to share his own experience., motivates George to inspire others to embrace our natural world. Not everyone needs to tackle the world’s most hostile environments for an adventure. Everyone has their own Everests. George hopes to encourage people to understand that adventures will give them something that nobody else can.
