Ran Fiennes: The Greatest Living Explorer

The cover of Field Ethos Journal Vol. 4, 2023 features Ranulph Fiennes and Charles Burton celebrating the successful completion of their 1979-1982 Transglobe Expedition, the first (and only) surface circumnavigation of the earth vertically from pole to pole.

In total, the trip took seven years to plan and another three years to complete, and would in many ways mark the start of a career in the field that has earned Ran the title of the greatest living explorer.

Ran is, by all accounts, an icon and a true embodiment of the spirit of gritty enterprise.

Catch Ran’s full story in our next print journal, shipping at the end of November.
