CONQUISTADOR OF THE USEFUL

A real fan of the polar regions and deep-sea diving, Alban Michon is a French adventurer and explorer who has gone on some exceptional expeditions. In 2010, he went diving at the geographical North Pole. In 2012, he travelled 1,000km in a sea kayak along the Greenland coast, and went diving under the icebergs there.
Alban Michon has always had a marked taste for adventure. He discovered deep-sea diving at age eleven and he had only just turned eighteen when he began working as an instructor at the beginning of the season in Corsica and Porquerolles. At age 22, he bought the Tignes ice diving school (Savoie, France), then the Vasques du Quercy deep-sea diving school centre (Lot, France). Very soon, Alban set the benchmark for deep-sea diving and ice diving. Amateurs and professionals from all over Europe come to learn the techniques for these extraordinary dives.

CONQUISTADOR OF THE USEFUL

In 2010, his passion for adventure and the polar regions took Alban Michon to the North Pole for ‘Deepsea Under the Pole‘, a forty-five-day expedition during which he performed several dives under the pack ice, in some of the most inhospitable places on the planet. Two years later, he went sea kayaking with his friend Vincent Berthet, as they embarked on a two-month adventure all on their own to the east coast of Greenland. From this voyage, Alban brought back images of extraordinary dives into the crystal clear waters of the Arctic Ocean, where he was in close contact with icebergs, polar bears and the Northern Lights. The documentary based on this experience, ‘Le Piège Blanc‘ (The White Trap). broadcast for the first time on Thalassa in May 2013, thrilled hundreds of thousands of viewers and made Alban a household name. He received recognition from his peers when, in 2014, he became a member of the jury on the television programme “Explô” on France Ô, alongside Philippe Poupon among others.
Human contact is a driving force and the basis of Alban Michon’s professional approach. Through his activities as a lecturer and accompanying guide for Abyssworld in Siberia and Antarctica, Alban shares his experience, and passes on his resolutely positive personal philosophy and an energy that can move mountains.
