Running time: 60 minutes
Ian Wright island hops around the pristine coral atolls of the Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. He begins his adventures on the most developed island, Providenciales, which is a real draw for tourists.
Heading east, Ian’s next stop is North Caicos, where he learns about the islands’ heritage at the Wade’s Green Slave Plantation and in town meets some real island characters. He then takes a ferry to the neighbouring island of Middle Caicos, for a stunning trek along its wild and deserted north coast.
On South Caicos, Ian helps out on an environmental study of lemon shark before ending his journey on Grand Turk - renowned for its beautiful colonial architecture - in search of majestic humpback whales.
We then meet up with Zay Harding, who is hiking the Milford Track, the most famous and spectacular trekking route in New Zealand. To reach the remote trailhead on the southwestern tip of the South Island, Zay sails in a traditional wooden ketch across beautiful Lake Te Anau, where he starts the 3-day trek up and over the MacKinnon Pass en route to the Milford Sound.
Zay reaches the ocean, and the end of his trek - the Milford Sound, a dramatic fjord enclosed by sheer peaks plunging thousands of feet straight down into the water, has been called the eighth wonder of the world, and is a fitting climax to one of the finest treks on earth.
Along the way:
- See humpback whales and lemon sharks in South Caico
- Eat conch, a Turks and Caico delicacy
- Discover the remote trailhead on the tip of the South Island, New Zealand
