The all-new Discovery Channel series, Expedition To The Edge, sees a family embarking on an epic and dangerous voyage through one of the most perilous passages. The story unfolds in 2018 with Captain Clemens Gabriel, along with his family, including daughters aged five and six, and a group of modern-day explorers, set out on the adventure of a lifetime.
After several record-breaking summers of warm temperatures in the Arctic, Captain Gabriel and his crew of family and friends were 1 of 23 ships who expected smooth sailing as they attempted the perilous Northwest Passage through the Arctic in 2018.
However, after setting sail from The
Marshall Islands to tackle the impossible, they quickly encountered the coldest
season in quarter century. 21 ships turned back immediately, but Captain
Clemens Gabriel made the shocking decision to push through.
Equipped with a 40-year-old boat, no formal training and no financial backing, the crew is a self-sustaining and unfunded group of modern explorers who must fix and correct every hardship and obstacle that stands in their way using only elbow grease and ingenuity.
With an unfiltered look at the motivations, fears and struggles of the crew who survived a perilous 8-month journey into the legendary Northwest Passage, Expedition To The Edge is the story of one family on their epic, emotionally charged journey to follow their dream and have the adventure of a lifetime.
