The Ultimate Expedition Finland – Season 1
Ultimate Expedition is a breathtaking show where 8 celebrities are given a challenge to conquer a 20.000-foot-high mountain. The celebrities, total rookies in mountain climbing, spend a month at a major mountain area, and are trained by mountaineering professionals to get the skills needed for the unreal mission. The celebrity climbers are evaluated after every leg of the race, and the expedition leader decides who will continue and who’s out of the race. Finally, at the summit there is room for only one.
