Former Royal Marine Commandos Louis Nethercott and Anthony Lambert are embarking on a world first expedition the likes of which has never been accomplished before.
Using the skills and discipline provided to them through their diverse military careers they are setting out to be the first humans to cross the planets 5 largest islands unsupported, using only human power.
Due to the unique and varied nature of this challenge their bodies will be pushed beyond endurance, not only will the Expedition 5 team need to be in the highest physical condition possible, they will need every ounce of their determination and will power in order to complete this remarkable undertaking.
Both Louis and Ant have active front line experience from their time serving in Afghanistan. They both feel that the challenges faced by Expedition 5 are insignificant compared to the daily challenges faced by many of their former colleagues wounded in the service of their country.
So far they have conquered Borneo, Papua New Guinea and Madagascar. They now face their first arctic climate, crossing the largest island on earth - Greenland.
