Ben Fogle meets people who have given up the rat race for an alternative lifestyle.

Master craftsman Robert bought 200 acres of land in the Ozark National Forest 20 years ago and now has a family of six. But injuries and old age may get in the way of his ‘living treasure’.

Part 2: New Zealand
After a certain fateful day changed their lives forever, Amber and Amy packed their family onto a converted school bus to tour the rugged coastlines and dramatic mountain ranges of New Zealand’s North Island. The family have covered 10,000km in a year.

Part 3: Thailand
French-Canadian Julien lives in a remote Buddhist monastery in the jungle-mountains of Thailand, far off any conventional map. Ben learns how and why this former teenage student from the West stripped away all complications of a modern life for a primitive Eastern and religious existence, and how this choice affected his family.

Part 4: Norway
Randi was the first Norwegian woman to climb Everest, and now she uses her life on a remote Arctic Circle island to inspire others – including Ben.
