Where the Wild Men Are Series 3Where the Wild Men Are Series 3

Adventurer Ben Fogle meets more people who have turned their backs on the trappings of Western society and set up home in some of the most isolated locations on Earth.

Series 3 sees Ben join fellow Brit, and the series’ first woman, Gaynor Leeper in the Swedish Arctic Circle. Gaynor gave up her job as a high-flying communications manager in London to become an Arctic dog musher. Ben joins Gaynor, her husband Milos and their 40 Alaskan huskies on a trek through this freezing wilderness.

In Utah, USA, Ben meets twin brothers Bill and Bob Stone. Once adrenalin junkies, the twins are now canyon-dwelling renegades in their early 70s whose isolated home is 12 miles deep inside some of the world’s most striking and wild terrain.

And in the deep desert sand dunes of Namibia, Ben lives with former city worker Gideon Davids and his young family. Now a master bushman, Gideon quit his career in life insurance for the dry and dusty desert. From hand washing baby nappies to learning vital desert survival skills to hunting and eating oryx, Ben discovers the realities of everyday life in this tough environment.
