Adventurer - Speaker
Laval St. Germain is a Calgary dad, husband, airline captain and global adventurer best known for being the only Canadian to have summited Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen. He also holds the record for the fastest-ever crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, from mainland Canada to mainland Europe, in a solo row boat.
Laval has a passion for the wild empty places on maps and for the challenges and rewards that come with time well spent in the natural world.
Laval departs in just days on his next expedition: A 1,200-kilometre solo ski to the South Pole, followed by a climb up Antarctica’s highest mountain.
