Nik Wallenda is an acrobat, aerialist, daredevil, high wire artist and an author. He holds 11 Guinness World Records, including one for one of the most impressive feats in history — being the first person to walk over Niagara Falls on a tightrope.
The “King of the Hire Wire” talks to Growing Bolder about his boldest adventures and his family’s centuries-long legacy of pushing the limits of what’s possible. Plus, he shares details on his next death-defying stunt, one that may be his most dangerous yet — a high wire walk over an active volcano in Nicaragua.
What you probably don’t know about Wallenda is that his mission is not to amaze but rather to inspire. He wants to encourage all of us to think outside our comfort zone, to not be afraid to fail and ultimately to live the big, bold lives we’re meant to live.
