A few weeks back I shared a video from electric vehicle company Rivian that teased a massive adventure driving across all of South and Central America from Patagonia to Los Angeles. The video was Rivian’s own promo for the journey, which is actually for a television show coming to Apple TV+ called Long Way Up.
If you know your adventure travel television shows, you may also already know that this is the sequel to Long Way Round and Long Way Down, both of which starred actor Ewan McGregor and his friend and filmmaker Charlie Boorman. In the first of those series, the duo rode their motorcycles around the world, starting and ending in the U.K.
In Long Way Down, they went from the northernmost tip of Scotland to the southernmost tip of Africa, enjoying quite a few adventures along the way. Now, we’re set to join them on the road once again, and I know I’m looking forward to it. The video above is a preview of what to expect and of course it looks epic.
