Tim Jarvis

Author, explorer and scientist, Tim Jarvis can almost call the polar regions his second home. He has made four previous expeditions to Antarctica and the high Arctic, battling freezing temperatures, extreme weight loss, a diet of lard and other horrors. His recreation of Sir Douglas Mawson’s 1913 trek across Antarctica was made into an award winning documentary: Mawson: Life and Death in Antarctica. Not content with the isolation and physical deprivation he encountered on that journey, Tim set out to emulate the path of another one of his heroes, Ernest Shackleton. When he’s not struggling through snow and ice and near-death experiences, Tim lives in Adelaide, Australia with his wife, Elizabeth, and their young family.
