Would you go climbing with this man?


Some people call him brave, some call him mad.  To face the thin air at high altitude takes a bit of both, but to Nigel Vardy, there is nothing like being on a high mountain.  Losing limbs to severe frostbite would put off all but the few, but to Nigel it was the springboard to climb, achieve and conquer.

Over the past 25 years he has climbed across the world, set mountaineering records, worked with international media and spoken extensively to schools and businesses. He continues on life's adventure, forcing new boundaries and new experiences every day of his life…

As Nigel says - "I don't want to die in an unused body…”

During recent cruises and business events he has spoken about going ‘Over the Horizon’ encompassing life, adventure, near death experiences, recovery, mental health, life experience and reflection (and my 1977 VW Camper!)
