Ep. 510: Solo Crossing of Frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia Revisited - Gavan Hennigan


Born and raised in Ireland, Gavan Hennigan turned a life of drug and alcohol addiction into a wonderful life of adventure. Once he managed to toss his bad habits aside, Gavan learned of a whole new world involving Ultrarunning, Snowboarding, Mountaineering, Splitboarding and even found himself employed as a commercial Deep Sea Diver working on offshore oil rigs.

As if living 700 ft below the surface of the ocean isn't adventurous enough, Gavan takes his breaks from his day job to explore some of the highest peaks in the world as well as the most brutal environments on our planet.


He has competed in some of the longest, toughest ultramarathons, like the Likeys 6633 Ultra 350 and the Yukon Arctic Ultra 300. He has climbed and snowboarded peaks in Svalbard, Antarctic, BC as well as Alaska and all seven continents.
