Born on May 5th, 1962
French adventurer, director and writer
French writer and filmmaker Nicolas Vanier draws inspiration from the numerous adventures he has experienced and the many people he has met as part of his expeditions in sub-zero locations like Northern Canada and Lapland. One of today’s great explorers he prefers horseback riding and dogsledding to more conventional means of transportation. He is a great fan of dog teams and has taken part in some of the world’s toughest sled races. He also created the “Grande Odyssée” sled race – the European equivalent of the Iditarod – held every year at Mont Blanc. Nicolas Vanier has a deep respect for nature and the environment. In 2009 he built an eco-camp in the Vercors region of France to give nature enthusiasts the opportunity to admire the region’s breathtaking beauty on horseback, snowshoes or by dogsled.
