"Big Crazy Family Adventure" is a reality series on the Travel Channel.

Trekking through the Himalaya (with a short stop at Mt. Everest's base camp), sailing the Ganges River, crossing the North Pacific Ocean on a container ship, meditating with monks in a Tibetan monastery — these are not the typical activities you might expect during a family vacation with two young children. But the Kirkby family is on an extraordinary adventure halfway around the globe — and inviting everyone to come along.

This mesmerizing and cinematic series follows wilderness guide, writer and award-winning photographer Bruce Kirkby throughout this epic trip — from his home in Kimberley, British Columbia, to a remote monastery in the Himalaya — with his wife, Christine Pitkanen, and their two young boys: Bodi, 7 and Taj, 3. There's just one catch: on their 13,000-mile adventure they won't be taking ANY airplanes. To fully experience the life-changing and serendipitous moments that exploring the world provides, they'll get to their final destination through surface travel only — canoe, container ship, ferry, high-speed train, river boat, tuk tuk, pony, their own eight feet and more.

"Big Crazy Family Adventure" is produced by WDE and Generate Entertainment, Inc. for Travel Channel. For WDE, the executive producer is Wes Dening. For Generate Entertainment, the executive producer is Assaf Blecher. For Travel Channel, the executive producer is Dale Roy Robinson.
