What does it take to travel from the lowest point in Switzerland—located along the lake in Lago Maggiore to its highest point a Dufourspitze in record time? That’s what we’re about to find out in the video above, as outdoor athlete Andy Steindl set off to connect these two locations along some impressive European trails. His unsupported trek takes him from 193 meters (633 feet) above sea level up to 4634 meters (15,203 ft) in just 8 hours, 10 minutes, and 41 seconds, covering 98 km (60 miles) in the process. In order to do that, he had to run, bike, and climb through some of the most beautiful terrain you can imagine. Fortunately for us, he has a camera crew along to record the journey. Check it out above.
