The first 7-summits non-stop round-the-world expedition connects the 7 continents with their various climate zones and connects environmental issues with sport to engage young people in particular.
TOP’s of the seven continents:
- Mt. Blanc 4807m/15771ft, Europe – climbed
- Aconcagua 6959m/22831ft, South-America – climbed
- Denali (Mt. McKinley) 6198m/20335ft, North-America – climbed
- Mt. Kosciuszko 2230m/7316ft, Australia – climbed
- Mt. Everest 8846m/29022ft, Asia – climbed
- Kilimanjaro 5895m/19222ft, Africa – climbed
- Mt. Vinson 5140m/16864ft, Antarctica – coming next
They started in Switzerland climbing the TOP of the 26th staates to explore the best practise examples for our climate in their hike between the TOPs. See where they started.
The core expedition team Sabine & Dario and their children Salina, Andri, Noe, Alegra and Mia together with volunteers from 48 nations:
- sailed 100’000 nautical miles with the expedition sailboat Pachamama
- biked 18’000 km
- climbed 400’000 altimeters and summited sofar 6 of the 7-Summits
- opened new route in the Arctic through the Northwest Passage through Fury & Hecla Strait into Foxe Basin and Hudson Strait
The expedition’s exclusive use of human power and nature’s force (wind, solar) proves that even today great achievements can be made in balance with nature. We hope that our initiative encourages people also to use their feet and bicycles more often as regular means of transportation.
