Award-winning writer, photographer and intrepid adventurer
Levison Wood is a British Army officer now best known for undertaking some of the most daunting walking expeditions on the planet.
Born in Staffordshire in 1982, Wood studied history at the University of Nottingham before joining the army in 2006. As an officer in the British Parachute Regiment, he served in Afghanistan, was promoted to captain in 2008 and left the army in 2010.
Upon leaving the army, Wood embarked on a new career as a writer, photographer and explorer, traversing the globe on ambitious expeditions. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society in 2011.
In 2014, Wood embarked on a daunting nine-month walk along the length of the Nile river, taking him through six countries from its source to the river’s mouth in Egypt. The expedition was commissioned as a TV series for Channel 4 and Wood wrote a book detailing his adventure, both of which arrived in 2015.
Following from his Nile expedition, Wood turned his attention to the Himalayas, walking from Afghanistan to Bhutan. Again, a series and book followed, the latter of which won him the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Award for Adventure Travel Book Of The Year.
Wood then took on further travels along the Silk Road and through the Americas from Colombia to Mexico before returning to the Middle East for a perilous 5000-mile expedition from Iraq to Lebanon, shown on Channel 4 in January 2020.
Later in 2020, Wood undertook another perilous trek, following the migratory paths of elephants across Botswana. Once more, the expedition was turned into a Channel 4 series, broadcast in May 2020, and a book.
On 30 September 2020, Wood announced The Art Of Exploration UK tour for autumn 2021 to share his experiences and learnings from a lifetime of travel live on stage.
Author and explorer Levison Wood has announced he’ll be hitting the road from 19 September – 11 October 2021 with The Art Of Exploration, his third UK tour.
Levison Wood is bringing The Art Of Exploration UK tour to the following cities in 2021:
- Kings Lynn
Author and explorer Levison Wood’s The Art Of Exploration is a one-man show. He’ll share his experiences over a lifetime of travel, from his army career and the front-lines of Afghanistan to his photo-journalism assignments in the Congo and Nepal, as well as world-renowned expeditions through some of the most testing environments on earth, including the Nile, Himalayas and the Arabian peninsula. Its run time is approximately two hours.
