Beyond The Beaten Path follows the three adventurous Eagar brothers as they undertake incredible journeys to odd and exotic destinations around the world.
The brothers hitch-hike from the ancient Inca capitol of Cuzco. They get robbed, suffer acute mountain sickness, get mixed up with police, get high on coca leaves and meet some wonderful locals as they battle their way across the Andes.
The brothers chosen form of transport in Egypt is a Felucca Boat…the ancient trading vessel of Egyptian transport and business. They travel north along the Nile, from the oasis town of Aswan to the ancient city of Luxor, before finding a massive sand dune to slide down.
Lapland is a frozen, winterland of reindeer, Sami people and saunas. The brothers start in Stockholm and fly 200 kilometers straight north above the Arctic Circle. Their chosen mode of transport for this journey is a reindeer sleigh.
Disaster and triumph set this show apart. The brothers start out with a near death boat disaster in the southern Philippine Sea but bounce back and end up attaining their goal of reaching Donsol village, the whale shark capitol of the world.

In this episode the brothers shun the more famous areas, Tokyo and Kyoto, and head to the isolated, ancient island of Shikoku. Their route is the ancient 88 Temple Zen pilgrimage circuit.
By pick-up truck, the brothers route is the culturally and geographically rich island of Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. Lobster fishing, mussel farming, hooking, kayaking, it's all happening in this episode.
The brothers attain their goal of riding motorcycles to the heart of Nicaragua, through the jungle to the isolated beaches of the Pacific coast and back inland: through Spanish-colonial towns, cigar plantations, local villages and the huge volcanic island of Ometepe.
Imagine a 26-pub, 7-day, 60-mile pub-crawl! Doing a traditional ‘ramble’ through the stunning Yorkshire Dales region of northern England, the brother’s stride through the moors and dales and peaks and valleys - legs and livers intact.
From Marrakesh, the brothers take a series of local Berber taxis over the High Atlas Mountains and down into the Draa Valley until the road ends at the edge of the great sand sea of the Sahara where they bury some treasure.

The brothers traverse the country’s interconnecting network of waterways by ferryboat. From shrimp baron, to peasant fishermen, lofty temple ruins to anonymous chai wallahs, they make their way to Kushtia, home to the shrine of Guru Lalone Shaw.
Securing special visas, the brothers get 10 ponies and 6 porters and undertake a stunning, but difficult 13-day pony trek over the Himalayas to the valley of Mustang where they will try to have a sitting with the king.
Flying a bush plane to the far-reaching tip of the ‘Rock’, the brothers are back in the rugged, isolated island where they were born. Via kayak, the brothers paddle from fishing port to fishing port before reaching their ultimate destination ‘Iceberg Alley'.
