Davor Rostuhar – Polar dream (ENG)

Polar Dream
author: Davor Rostuhar

Outside the windchill is -40°C. There isn’t another soul within 200 kilometers. And the goal, the South Pole, is still over a thousand kilometers away. All Davor has to do to give up is make a call on his satellite phone, then he can be rescued and returned to civilization, but if he does that, his dream of walking to the South Pole solo, unassisted and unsupported will be over.

This is the story of Davor Rostuhar’s 48 day trek to the South Pole. It is also a story about what it takes to make your dreams come true. In this book Davor explores how we can turn a vague aspiration into a reality? How we can keep going when faced with impossible odds? And what we learn about ourselves when placed in extreme conditions? Polar Dream is an inspirational story about passion, endurance, and what it takes to believe in yourself.


A traveler’s expedition log and a personal diary detailing the preparations and the execution of this extreme expedition to the South Pole, it is a perfect guide for adventurers who dream or are planning on setting of on a polar expedition themselves, but it is also a perfect book for those who wish to explore the most remote spaces of the Earth from the comfort of their sofa. Either way, this book talks about ambitions and dreams, and how thorough hard work and persistence, dreams do come true.
