Andrew Miles – Biography

 

Andrew Miles has been an explorer and television producer for over twenty-five years. His vast experience of travelling to the world’s remotest and most hostile environments, and organising numerous successful extreme expeditions, has given him a unique position and perspective in enabling him to establish World First Expeditions.

In 2010, in response to the growing trend for HNW & UHNW individuals seeking unique and bespoke one-off experiences, Andrew conceived and set up World First Expeditions. A company like no other, offering journeys like no other on earth: the truly original and pioneering concept of choosing the most stunning and hostile environments on earth and then creating new and innovative ways to travel through them.
