Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE
Accredited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the ‘world’s greatest living explorer’, British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE is undoubtedly a national treasure.
Born in Windsor in 1944, Sir Ranulph served in the British Army for eight years before switching his attention to adventuring. Among his many incredible achievements include unsupported expeditions to the North Pole, the famous Arctic solo expedition, seven marathons in seven days on seven continents and scaling Mount Everest at the age of 65. Sir Ranulph now commits much of his time to writing, public speaking and using his expertise and skills in adventuring to raise money for various charities.
