Starting in Vancouver, Canadian teams will move east over 16,000 kilometers to reach the finish line in St. John’s.
“Without using any of the trappings of modern-day life, the teams must navigate through some of the most remote parts of the usa looking at great scenery and touching the ground where very few people go.
“Takes place against the stunning backdrop of Canada but with no mobile phone, internet access, or credit cards to assist them.
The competing travelers will discover that to reach the finish line quickest and win the £20 000 cash prize, they need to rely on the kindness of strangers and use every ounce of their travel skills and ingenuity.”
The series first aired in 2019 on BBC Two, seeing contestants make their way from the UK to Singapore. A second – filmed ahead of the pandemic – aired in 2020 as contestants raced across South America from Mexico to Argentina.
