The Hairy Bikers' Northern Exposure

The boys are back on the road doing what they love most - biking and cooking! In this brand new six part series, Dave Myers and Si King set off on a proper road-trip, their most ambitious and personal journey yet. This time they're heading North, circumnavigating the vast Baltic Sea in search of the most exciting food and some of the wildest places in Europe. It's a challenge they have long dreamt of undertaking - and all the more poignant as it marks Si's return to rude health following his brain aneurism last year.

The brackish Baltic Sea is surrounded by nine countries which are home to more than 85m people. The Hairies' travels take them through this magical region, from Poland to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, from Russia (St Petersburg) to Finland and from Northern Sweden (Sami country) to Southern, in their search for hearty home cooking and cutting-edge cuisine, vast forests and sparkling lakes, windswept beaches and flower-strewn meadows, incredible biking roads and - hopefully - a warm welcome. It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!
