Journey into the unknown
The main passion of Monika Witkowska (born in 1966) has always been traveling and related outdoor activities – primarily sailing and mountain climbing. Monika visited over 180 countries, conquered 3 eight-thousanders – Mount Everest, Manaslu and Lhotse, many high-mountains peaks (including Matterhorn, Denali, Aconcagua, Mt Blanc, Vinson Massif), sailed around Chukotka and Cape Horn and reached the Polish Arctic base by yacht as the first person in the world. She also made a difficult three-month cruise through the Northwest Passage, from Greenland to Alaska. She also conquered The Seven Summits – both in Reinhold Messner and Richard Bass versions and their modifications, including Mont Blanc, as Europe’s highest summit. For many years she belonged to the Kapituła Kolosów, and since 2012 has been a member of the Rady Kolosów.
