Kurt J Mac has been walking towards the fabled Far Lands since 2011, a quest that has seen him achieve the record for the longest journey in Minecraft.
By April 2015, the 33-year-old from from Phoenix, Arizona had walked a staggering 2,097,152 blocks - the equivalent of 2,097.15 km.

Despite the incredible ground covered, Kurt has still only traversed 16.78% of the way towards his final destination - the area that forms the “edge" of the game's “infinite" map known as the Far Lands - a goal that some have estimated will take him another 20 years to reach.

Kurt's epic adventure originally began as a hobby. However, videos of his Minecraft adventuring soon began to develop a following on YouTube, with his channel eventually attracting over 200,000 subscribers. He now uses his quest to raise money for charity.
In the video below, the wanderer tells of his ambitious plans to keep travelling forward in the game and in turn raise his record number – while explaining: “Notch (Minecraft’s creator) said it would be impossible to reach the Far Lands so I took that as a challenge!”
