Arved Fuchs in Brunswick
|Born||26 April 1953|
Arved Fuchs (born 26 April 1953 in Bad Bramstedt, Schleswig-Holstein) is a German explorer. On 30 December 1989, he and Reinhold Messner were the first to reach the South Pole with neither animal nor motorised help, on skis, and with wind-assistance (parasail). That made him also the first person to reach both poles by foot within one year. Many of his expeditions have taken place on water, such as his failed attempt to sail around North Pole on a traditional sailing boat (1991-1994). This boat, named Dagmar Aaen, is still used by Fuchs on his current expeditions.
