Matthieu Tordeur crossed the land of extremes

Matthieu Tordeur has embarked on the expedition of his life. The figures speak for themselves: at 27, he covered 1150 kilometres on skis in 50 days in November 2018 with a 100-kilo sled in tow. This makes him the youngest ever and first French explorer to make the journey from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole - alone on skis, without a kite and without any outside support. After his return, he talks about the peculiarities of Antarctica, the special living conditions there and why he didn't take off his skis from the very first day when he wasn't in his tent.
