Next Episode of Alexander Armstrong in the Land of the Midnight Sun is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
The television presenter and comedian takes on an epic 8,000-mile journey halfway around the Arctic Circle deep in mid-winter, a spectacular but deadly time of year to see the unforgiving, ice-bound region. His odyssey is full of surprises as he witnesses natural wonders and discovers the magnetic lure of the far north.
In episode one, Alexander's odyssey begins in Scandinavia, as he ﬂies into Northern Norway on a light aircraft towards Bodø, ten miles north of the Arctic Circle. His pilot John decides to let him lose on the controls for his ﬁrst ever ﬂying lesson, before they land at Bodø to catch the day's only ferry to the Lofoten Islands.
In episode two, Alexander continues his journey through Iceland. He heads to Thingvellir National Park to explore a vast 40,000 mile crack in the Earth's surface. Alexander says: "This is the meeting point between two enormous slabs of earth. Over to that side, the Eurasian slab that contains Europe, most of Russia, most of mainland China, right the way down to southeast Asia, and on this side, the north American slab." Archaeologist Kevin Martin convinces him to get an even better view by immersing himself in near freezing water, five miles down the road.
In episode three, Alexander begins the final leg of his journey by flying over the Canadian arctic over the Yukon and Klondike regions, which experienced a gold rush at the beginning of the 20th century. At Canada's Great Slave Lake, he boards a 1956 Bombardier with tank tracks and skis, which transports him to the settlement close to the north shore of the lake. Alexander meets Daniel Gillis and Monique Robert who came to the lake five years ago from Ottowa, to run a floating B&B.
