Some call him “Thor”

Troy Henkels passion for exploration has taken him to some of the harshest environments on Earth:  the Kalahari Desert in Africa, Greenland, Iceland, the North and South Pole, the Bering Strait, and Mount Everest.

Troy grew up on an apple orchard in rural Iowa. After pursuing a career in the corporate world, he quit to seek a more vivid lifestlye in Alaska. Since that time he has been on expeditions all over the world.
