Peter Hillary

Legendary Adventurer

Peter Hillary's life is a testament to setting goals and achieving them. His skill, driving ambition, and good judgement have enabled him to summit mountains and survive ferocious storms and avalanches. Like his father, Sir Edmund Hillary, who made the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953, Peter has twice reached the summit of Everest, travelled to the ends of the earth at the North and South Poles, survived a horrific storm on 'the savage mountain' K2 and forged a new route across Antarctica.

"To pursue your own goals is great, but it is even greater to help others reach theirs."
