Big Earth was created by producer/director Russ Malkin, who has spent twenty years successfully putting together international travel events and expeditions, including award-winning television programmes such as The Long Way Round.
If Britain isn’t cold enough for you try kayaking in Alaska or for something different put night biking on your resume. Fancy your own Eat, Pray, Love journey then discover the birthplace of Yoga or for Valentine’s romance snuggle up in a geodesic dome (igloo!) and watch the stars in Northern Chile! All 101 Adventures have been photographed, filmed and trialled for some very good causes like Unicef.
Although there are challenging trips for the serious traveller here, you don’t necessarily need months to spare or thousands of pounds to set off on an adventure.
Ever wanted to:

As the producer and director of some of TV’s most successful travel series – The Long Way Down, The Long Way Round, Race to Dakar and By Any Means – Russ Malkin is an expert in adventure travel.
