Martin Frey is a World Record Holder. Adventurer. Public Speaker. Thinker. Investor. Humanitarian. The first person to climb the Seven Summits and sail the Seven Seas.
On April 17, 2016, Martin Frey became the first person in the world to climb the Seven Summits – the highest peaks on each continent – and sail the Seven Seas. It was Martin’s late climbing partner and friend, Steve Gasser, who first suggested he climb all Seven Summits – the highest peaks on each continent – while the two were climbing Denali. Martin was inspired to complete their mission after Steve’s untimely death a few months later. In December 2012, Martin summited his final peak – Mount Vinson in Antarctica.
With the Seven Summits completed, the ocean began calling to Martin again. His unprecedented achievement was certified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, which acknowledged him as the first person to climb the Seven Summits and cross the Seven Seas by sailboat.
Through this 11-year journey, Martin has learned to face uncertainty, adjust his course in the face of challenges, and never compromise his will to accomplish what he set out to do. He has a great spirit of adventure and demonstrates how an ordinary man anyone can accomplish extraordinary things with planning, a solid support team, a common goal, and some calculated risk.
While looking forward to whatever his next big adventure may be, Martin hopes to take the lessons he’s learned and use them to inspire youth and adults around the world. By facing your summit, having the courage to leave the safety of your harbor, and charting your course for success, Martin truly believes anyone can accomplish whatever they set their mind to.
