Hibbert was born in Southsea, England, the second son of Commodore Richard Hibbert CBE RN, an officer in the Royal Navy. The younger of two brothers, Hibbert attended Canford School before reading biological sciences at St Hugh\'s College, Oxford. Whilst attending Oxford University, Hibbert was actively involved in the Oxford University Exploration Club, The Oxford Union and college boat clubs. He graduated in 2007. Hibbert trained for 12 months in the Royal Marines young officer batch from September 2008, withdrawing shortly before completion due to injury.\n', '

In 2008 he broke the world record, along with teammate George Bullard, for the longest unsupported polar journey in history. At 21 years old, Hibbert led the 1374-statute-mile, 113-day, Tiso Trans-Greenland Expedition. The expedition was notable especially for the youth of the team and for the final week of the expedition, which was completed on dangerously low levels of food. His world record was altered to state \'Arctic\', rather than \'Polar\', to reflect the 2011 Antarctic expedition by Aleksander Gamme that travelled a short distance further.[citation needed]\n', '
