From amazing airports carved into unstable ice shelves, highways built along 1,000 ft sheer cliffs, to spectacular bridges that send you through the clouds and railways running a schedule of homemade trains. These are the most jaw-dropping and extreme places anywhere in the world.

Where there’s adrenaline, danger and excitement, this six-part series will be. Using edge-of-your-seat UGC, first-person eyewitness stories, rare archive, and cutting-edge CGI, Arrow Media throws the viewer straight into the world’s most extreme locations.

Weaving together visceral storytelling and huge engineering, we count down the top 10 THE WORLD’S MOST EXTREME airports, railways, roads, tunnels, bridges and waterways.

 

Series 2 - Ep 3: Living On The Edge

World’s Most Extreme ‘Living on the Edge’ examines how humans survived and thrived in some of the harshest terrains. In the Andes, the inhabitants of the world’s highest town defy sub-zero temperatures and little oxygen to venture deep into dangerous gold mines. Every year, the sewers of Dhaka, the world’s most overpopulated city, are swamped during monsoon season, forcing cleaners to scour them out by hand.

Series 2 - Ep 2: Nature

World’s Most Extreme ‘Nature’ reveals a countdown of the deadliest natural forces that shape the world. A 16,000-foot-deep underwater canyon funnels some of the largest waves in the world onto the shores of Nazare in Portugal, attracting the toughest, or most foolhardy, surfers. In Hawaii, we find residents who build their homes close to an active volcano, on freshly cooled lava.

Series 2 - Ep 1: Buildings

World’s Most Extreme Buildings looks at 10 of the most remarkable buildings ever constructed. Mexico City is frequently savaged by earthquakes, but the Torre Mayor skyscraper barely moves thanks to 98 specially engineered shock absorbers. Norway offers a glimpse into the future with the world’s tallest timber building; eco-friendly and more fire-resistant than steel.
