Far off British Columbia's northwest coast lie a string of islands referred to as the Galapagos of Canada. Abundant with wildlife, intensely beautiful and extremely remote, the Queen Charlotte Islands are one of North America's richest biological sites. Perspectives in this show take us from the cockpit of the E-Z Flyer, soaring high above the cloudy peaks of the mountain chain, to deep in the rain forest, where a nomadic tribe of mushroom pickers live and work under a canopy of filtered light. This is an ancient land, and despite the damage inflicted by a century of logging, one which is in a constant state of regeneration.

From the aerial view to the human perspective, Exploring Horizons travels off the beaten path to the remote corners of the world and finds those places where civilization moved in without taking over. Three stunning seasons cover a cross section of culture, adventure and amazing places that make up our global village.
