Language Spoken :
Laval St. Germain is an expert at turning dreams into goals into reality, as an airline captain turned mountaineer, climbing peaks with no oxygen. He knows what it takes to unzip the tent door and step out from high camp on Everest for a cold, gasping trip to the top or to shove off the dock to row alone across the North Atlantic Ocean. Laval is the only Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen, the only person to have climbed and skied Iraq's highest peak, and the holder of the fastest-ever crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean by solo ocean row boat from mainland North America to mainland Europe.

LAVAL ST. GERMAIN BIOGRAPHY

Laval St. Germaine is an airplane pilot and an extreme adventurer. He currently works as a pilot for Canadian North Airlines and has set national and international records by boat, bike and on foot. Last summer, he rowed solo across the Atlantic to raise money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation, completing the journey in a world-record 53 days.

Laval is an expert at turning dreams into goals into reality; Laval St.Germain knows what it takes to unzip the tent door and step out from high camp on Everest for a cold, gasping, trip to the top or to shove off the dock to row alone across the North Atlantic Ocean.

Laval St. Germaine is the only Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, the only person to have climbed and skied Iraq’s highest peak, and the holder of the fastest-ever crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean by solo ocean row boat from mainland North America to mainland Europe. Among St. Germain’s other accomplishments: he’s climbed and skied down Iraq’s highest peak and competed in six ultramarathons.

Laval has climbed the highest peak on all 7 of the earth’s 7 continents (the 7 Summits), and the highest peaks of more than 18 nations pulled a 110 kg sled 1200 km solo to the South Pole solo, then capped his trip with a climb of Antarctica’s highest mountain to raise funds for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. He is the only Canadian to climb Mount Everest without oxygen and has cycled from the Arctic Ocean to the Yukon during the winter, an expedition that took two attempts after a frostbitten toe thwarted the first.

He also cycled the Dempster Highway between Inuvik, N.W.T., and the Yukon with two of his kids, making them the youngest cyclists to complete the ride. Even though he has lost 3 fingers on his hand due to frostbite, nothing seems to hold Laval St. Germaine back, as he continuously pushes his limits and seeks out new explorations.

Laval St. Germain describes his athletic drive and desire for adventure as an addiction he had since childhood. He started lifting weights at eight years old and, in his teens, pursued mountaineering, fishing and backcountry and telemark skiing. By his mid-20s, Laval had adventured in the Andes, the Caucasus and the Amazon. He met his wife, Janet, in 1992, and they had three kids, with whom they’ve travelled the world.

Uniquely blending extreme high-risk outdoor adventure with the deliberate and strict adherence to procedures, checklists and risk management inherent in an airline pilot has kept Laval alive. Laval is an acclaimed keynote speaker, with emotional and striking stories from above the clouds and beyond the ocean horizon.

Hear and see what it takes to have the ability to step out way past normal, and shove off way past safe, but come back alive.
