Ed Stafford's 2022 biography

Ed Stafford’s Background

His epic adventure of bravery and hardship made headline news all over the world. Now he is using his adventures to inspire and motivate business audiences to seize success in the face of adversity and reach their goals however tough.

  • Walked 6,000 miles from the source of the Amazon to the sea
  • European Adventurer of the Year 2011
  • Described by Sir Ranulph Fiennes as being ‘truly extraordinary’ in the top league of expeditions past and present
  • The Daily Mail calls him ‘Britain’s most intrepid hero since Scott of the Antarctic,’ and The Times labelled him ‘a true hero’

Tough corporate audiences say time and again how moved they were by Stafford’s tale. He is honest and real and very funny with a no-nonsense way of imparting the valuable lessons he has learned.

An ex-soldier and explorer who had an extraordinary dream to walk the length of the Amazon, Stafford set out to achieve what many said was impossible with little more than a no-nonsense attitude and a sense of humour to get him through. It was a test of mental and physical toughness which took him 2 and half years.

From the source of the Amazon River in Southern Peru to the mouth of the river on the Brazilian Atlantic coast it was an adventure with a purpose – to help raise people’s awareness of environmental issues. He met indigenous tribes and learned about their struggles but he also learned a tremendous amount about getting on with others and about himself.

Ed was nominated as one of National Geographics Adventurers of the year 2010 and in 2011 he was awarded the title of European Adventurer of the Year in Stockholm.

Walking the Amazon is now a book and documentary DVD which was shown on the Discovery Channel and sold to over 100 countries.
