I’m often called “traveller”, but I prefer to say that I fulfills my dreams and don’t care if they meet any definition. My passion are long distance expeditions, during which I walk thousands of kilometers using only strength of my muscles, usually alone.

While traveling, I am looking for answers to the most profound questions. For me, traveling is a way to learning and understanding and to confronting my mind with the “other”. In the mountains I seek answers about myself and try to grasp what’s immaterial.

My adventure with the mountains started over 30 years ago. The moment, which I consider to be a my breakthrough, was a solo thru-hike of Carpathian Mountains in 2004 – the first ever done. Since then, I have walked 25 000 km through the inaccessible mountainous areas of Europe and Asia. My most important undertakings are: Greenland Crossing, lonely winter crossing of Iceland from east to west , thru-hike of Iranian Zagros and 2 crossings of the Carpathians. I have walked in the Himalayas, Karakorum, Tien-Shan and Pamir, completed the High Route of Pyrenees, thru-hike of Alps, Israel National Trail and Palestinian Abraham Path.  I appreciate not only the challenge, but above all the understanding that come during my way.

Separately I pursue my passion which is high mountains. It resulted in climbing Lenin Peak (7134 m), Khan Tengri (7010 m) and Baruntse (7152 m).

My trips were twice awarded during “Kolosy”, the most important Polish travelers’ festival. They received two nominations for the National Geographic Traveler Award. In 2022, the entirety of these expeditions were honored with the Magellan Award. Two of them are also described in my books.
