Excellent Adventure

Living Channel – Sunday’s from 20 July, 6.30pm

Take two friends with one vision – a shared dream to travel to the ends of the earth and conquer one of the world’s greatest challenges. Give them a guidebook, basic supplies and a backpacker’s budget. They will have a specific volcanic peak, mountain pass, desert or stretch of white water rapids to overcome as their ultimate goal. Excellent Adventures is set against the most spectacular landscapes and scenery from around the world. It’s a journey of self-discovery, and their relationship with each other will be tested to the limit. They’ll be coming at the challenge from different perspectives – through a generation gap, from a difference in profession, upbringing or even simply gender. It won’t be easy: two-man tents, temperature extremes, mood swings, mechanical problems and unreadable maps. But it’ll all be worth it when they realise they’ve finally achieved their dream – together.
