A fascinating evening with Sir Chris Bonnington

A fascinating evening with Sir Chris Bonnington

Mountaineering legend, Chris Bonnington, appeared in front of a packed audience in Bristol last night as one of this year’s star Wilderness Lecture speakers.

This annual series of lectures, presented by a diverse group of adventurers, is organised by our MD, Steve Berry and Dick Willis.

The enthralling evening showcased a new film about Sir Chris called ‘Bonnington: Mountaineer’ which looks back over the incredible life and career of the mountaineering legend and his many immense achievements climbing the highest and hardest mountains in the world. Now 85, Sir Chris reflects on his triumphs as well as tragedies, going full circle from his earliest climbs as a teenager to his ascent of the Old Many of Hoy aged 80.

After the film, Sir Chris took questions from the audience before signing copies of his latest book. The evening was considered a great success by the sold out crowd. Sir Chris is pictured here with Steve Berry.

The remaining lectures this year are presented by Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Simon Yates and John Pilkington. Visit Wilderness Lectures for further details and tickets.

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
