'Walking the Nile' and 'Walking the Himalayas' explorer Levison Wood takes on a new expedition in this 4-part series: to walk the length of Central America from Mexico to Colombia. His 4 million step, 1800-mile journey sees him walk for four months across eight countries and two continents, visiting some of the most fascinating and diverse regions on earth, before attempting to walk through the legendary Darien Gap – 60 miles of near impenetrable jungle that’s defeated explorers over the centuries - to reach Colombia in South America. Levison reunites with an old friend, Alberto, who plans to trek the whole way with him through remote, unpredictable, and stunningly beautiful landscapes - from the ancient Mayan ruins of Mexico and Guatemala, across Nicaragua’s volcanic fields and on to the tropical shores of the America’s Caribbean coastline.  As well as exploring spectacular landscapes, Lev encounters the darker side of the region as he walks through drug-smuggling regions to reach the most dangerous city in Central America and visits a thousand-strong migrant camp, where people from all over the world are struggling to make it to the US.
