As our cities become more crowded, and our lives ever more stressful, Kevin wants to find out whether a simpler life out in the wild could make us happier. And what we can learn from this new aspirational type of wilderness living. Each episode, Kevin travels to a far flung destination to see how others have built their lives and dwellings against the odds. Often the jaw-droppingly beautiful landscapes belie a harsh reality for the settlers who have chosen to build their lives there.
Whether paddling down the jungle river in a canoe, horse trekking through the Chilean mountains or machete-ing his way through a dense forest, Kevin experiences the realities of building a sustainable life off the beaten track.

1. Tonga
Kevin journeys five days to a desert island in the Pacific to meet a British family who have moved into the wild for a simpler life. How hard is it living in paradise?
2. Chile
Kevin travels to the foothills of the Andes, to meet a south London family who've quit the daily grind to build a home made of soil in the shadow of an active volcano.
3. Belize
Kevin travels to the rainforests of Belize in Central America, one of the world's wildest places, to meet the Atkinson family, who have made a jungle house from rubbish.
4. Sweden
Kevin heads for the Arctic Circle, to meet Richard and Claire, | who live in a cabin in the snow-covered forests of north Sweden, where sometimes simply surviving is a challenge.
