National Geographic Live! Polar Extreme! with polar explorer Børge Ousland

Join the adventure!
National Geographic Live returns to Tampa for another season of incredible events! Get your tickets today to hear real life explorers LIVE on stage as they share their unforgettable stories and breathtaking images.

National Geographic Live! Norway’s Børge Ousland is living proof that people with perseverance, skill and imagination can still achieve historic firsts in exploration. Ousland became the first person to cross Antarctica coast to coast, alone and without support. He and partner Mike Horn became the first to reach the North Pole unsupported during the darkness of winter — one of the most technically difficult expeditions ever accomplished. Ousland shares his trek through the harshest conditions on Earth and proves that it is possible to achieve the “impossible.” For Børge Ousland's official website, click here.
