Kari Herbert is a born explorer, having begun her passion for travelling at 10 months old. A travel writer and editor, she has made a career out of her ability to make audiences feel as if they were on an expedition with her. With strong visual presentations ranging from the Arctic to Oman, the wide range of travels make her a fascinating voice to listen to.
Born into a unique family environment, with a father who was an Artic explorer and a mother who was an author, her parents took her to live with the Polar Inuit for over two years before she had even celebrated her first. At the age of four, Kari accompanied her parents on another trip to live with the Sami of Lapland, whilst they survived the winter blizzards in the sanctuary of their caravan.
Kari’s first book ‘The Explorer’s Daughter’ was a hit and aired as ‘Book of the Week’ for BBC Radio 4. The book tells of Kari’s return to the place of her early childhood and explores her quest to understand the connection to both the polar wilderness and its unique people.
An accomplished author with more than four books published, Kari is a founding director of the indie publisher Polarworld and has also enjoyed a successful career on the radio.
