The electrifying true story of a race against time to solve the greatest mystery of polar exploration. Facing some of the most hostile terrain on the planet, how did Arctic pioneer Robert Peary travel 413km in just 37 days to reach the North Pole with only dogs and wooden sleds as his transportation? 100 years later, British explorer Tom Avery and his team set themselves against the elements to recreate Peary’s journey, risking their lives to break the record and rewrite history.

‘Avery’s account of his remarkable journey is gripping stuff’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Quite breathtaking’- Sir Ranulph Fiennes

To the End of the Earth is not just about human endurance: in an extraordinary way it’s also about re-defining history.’Dame Ellen MacArthur
