La Grande Percée X Centraide



Extreme Achievement

Seb Audy, polar explorer and mountaineer, aims to meet the ultimate challenges of mountaineers and explorers. The crossing of Greenland in 2021, a preparatory expedition for the Pole-to-Pole challenge, was an important physical and mental test. Seb’s desire to achieve the “Pole-to-Pole” feat was confronted with postponements of expeditions three times due to the pandemic and the war in Ukraine in the spring of 2022. He is now about to embrace his next challenge: to reach the North and South geographic poles on skis and realize the ascent of Mount Vinson.
