International world first adventurers The Turner Twins completed their latest expedition becoming the first adventurers to have reached The South American Pole of Inaccessibility. 

Hugo and Ross turned to adventuring ten years ago following a spinal cord neck injury Hugo endured during a freak diving accident. Since the injury, the identical twins have dedicated their lives to research and fundraising for spinal charity Wings for Life, an organisation set up to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

Starting on the north-west coast of Chile, The Turner Twins cycled over the Andes mountains ascending 33kms by bike, crossed the famous Atacama desert, traversed volcanoes and salt flats and then crossed the world’s largest swamp area, The Pantanal.
