Amidst the urban jungle, hidden between deep concrete canyons, one can find one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. The Explorers Club in New York is the epicentre of the last heroes – it is the meeting place for the planet’s most distinguished explorers. 105 years ago, at the time when the club was first formed, travelling was arduous. Vast parts of the world were not yet mapped, and the world was full of adventure. The world has become a smaller place, hardly a patch is left that has not yet been mapped and travelled to. The greatest amazements appear to have been harvested. Today, adventure is to be found in the details. The 'how' is more important than the 'where'. The series THE EXPLORERS CLUB accompanies and features five modern explorers on their travels all over the world. Over the course of five episodes we explore the world, and let ourselves drift to all corners of the earth and open our eyes to the great unknown amongst the seemingly ordinary. Via exotic landscapes, sparse deserts and bleak and threatening ice, we follow these women and men on their journey, faraway from classic nature documentaries.
