In each episode of Treks in a Wild World, Pilot Productions’ intrepid trekkers travel to far-flung regions where they embark on incredible journeys combining ecology, anthropology and history with action sports and outdoor pursuits.
Treks in a Wild World is a show for intrepid adventurers and outdoor lovers which ran for three series. Combining ecology, anthropology and history with action sports and outdoor pursuits in beautiful and sometimes remote locations.

One of the best bits about the Treks in a Wild World series is that Pilot Guide’s Ian Wright (who I find very irritating) doesn’t make an appearance in any episodes 🙂
