From Russia to Iran : Crossing the Wild Frontiers

Reza joined fellow adventurer Levison Wood on the last leg of his 6000-mile journey through the Caucasus Mountains in Iran. They visited Lake Urmia, once one of the largest salt lakes in the world.


Travelling via the ancient Valley of the Assassins, where a thousand years ago the world's first terror group launched their attacks, Lev and Reza reached Iran's capital Tehran and caught a lift through town with a biker gang. From Tehran, they faced the Alborz mountains, a mighty range that they needed to cross in order to reach the Caspian Sea and the end of their journey.

“From Russia to Iran: Crossing the Wild Frontier” aired at prime time on Channel 4.
