Kagge is a polar explorer, mountaineer, lawyer and publisher. He was the first to reach the South Pole, walking alone and unsupported for 50 days — an exploit featured on the cover of Time magazine, and to surmount the "three poles" — North, South and the summit of Mt Everest. For the past 25 years, he has been setting new standards in exploration. Kagge had already sailed across the Atlantic twice, around Cape Horn and to Antarctica and back by the time he received a law degree from the University of Oslo in 1989. In 1996, after a year's sabbatical reading philosophy at Cambridge University, he founded what is today one of Norway's leading book publishers. Kagge's latest expedition was to cross New York City through its sewage, water, train and subway tunnels.
