Charlie Walker is an adventurer and writer specialising in long-distance, human-powered expeditions to develop an intimate understanding of the world’s most remote communities. This focus has taken him to places as varied as the Tibetan plateau, the Mongolian steppe, the Congolese jungle, Arctic tundra, the highlands of New Guinea and numerous deserts in between.
He has travelled over 50,000 miles by bicycle, foot, horse, raft, ski and dugout canoe. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, a Scientific Exploration Society Explorer Award winner, and a four-time recipient of the Transglobe Expedition Trust's 'Mad but Marvellous' grant.
Charlie's work has been featured on the BBC World Service, BBC Radio 4, The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, Sidetracked and Geographical mag. He has also written two books: Through Sand & Snow, and On Roads That Echo.
