“The only limits in our lives are those we accept ourselves”

Miles Hilton-Barber is not your average explorer. Although blind from an early age, support from friends and his sighted guide, Jonathan Cook, helped Miles develop his other senses and explore the world from an entirely different perspective.

Using textures, temperatures, smells and sounds, Miles has undertaken a series of expeditions across the globe throughout his lifetime. Whether trekking through Antarctica, climbing Mont Blanc, or running the Marathon des Sables, his achievements have not only been a true inspiration to those around him, but redefined what many thought was possible.
