Stephen Venables talks to Nasio
November 2021

Stephen was the first Briton to ascend the summit of Mount Everest without bottled oxygen, a feat which has been described as one of the supreme athletic tests known to man.

Everest was a thrilling highlight in a career which has taken Stephen right through the Himalaya, from Afghanistan to Tibet, making first ascents of many previously unknown mountains. His adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, East Africa, South Africa and the European Alps. He has also appeared in several television documentaries, in the Imax film ‘Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure’, and is a past president of the South Georgia Association and of the Alpine Club.

Find out more about his amazing adventures below.

If hearing about Stephen’s amazing adventures inspires you to consider an adventure of your own, why not join the Nasio Trust on one of our Kilimanjaro climbs in 2022?
