Plot Synopsis

EXPEDITION WITH STEVE BACKSHALL is a 10-episode docuseries that follows explorer and naturalist Steve Backshall, as he pursues incredible journeys and world firsts -- unclimbed peaks, unexplored cave systems and uncharted landscapes -- setting foot where no human has been before. Backshall ventures into undiscovered territory, endures extreme physical challenges, encounters extraordinary wildlife and teams up with remarkable people along the way. From free-diving in underground river systems and descending deep into the caves of the Maya underworld, to kayaking Himalayan whitewater and scaling unclimbed Arctic peaks, these expeditions push Backshall and his expert crew to the limit. "There are still countless expeditions to be conquered and world discoveries to be made, and I am honored to have had the ability to be among the first to set foot in these incredible places," said Backshall. "It is thrilling to not know what you will find next. That's what exploration is all about."
