Is Levison Wood married?

No, Levison is not married!

The explorer previously opened about his personal life, saying that he doesn’t have time for dating as he usually travels for nine months of the year.

In an interview for Country Life Magazine (via Telegraph), Levison explained:


“Being away so often means a lack of stability in my life generally. It’s getting a bit easier now but the past five years have been difficult.”

He added:

You can’t disappear for months on end and not expect that to impact on your personal life. It’s hard for any woman to be with me at the moment.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2018, Levison promised that he will “go on a wife hunt” after his next adventure. However, he’s still single in 2020!
