Martin’s epic journey across the Pacific takes him to the Galapagos Islands for the third episode in the series.

The legendary Galapagos Islands, a volcanic chain of 18 major islands, plus over 100 tiny ones, are 800 miles from the shores of South America. It’s known as a ‘lost world’ as many of its plants and animals exist nowhere else on earth, and until recently it attracted nearly a quarter of a million visitors a year

Martin is following in the footsteps of the great British naturalist Charles Darwin, who really put this place on the map when he sailed here in 1835.

Martin Clunes embarks on an epic ocean wide adventure in search of the real Pacific. His voyage is inspired by reading a book given to him when he was a child by his father about the Kon-Tiki expedition across the Pacific. Martin has always yearned to follow in those explorers’ footsteps.

The Pacific Ocean, the largest ocean on the planet, covering 63 million square miles, is strewn with tens of thousands of islands with coral atolls, jungle clad mountains, and lava spewing volcanoes. It is rich in animal life and has an astonishing kaleidoscope of humanity.
