Tonight, they will explore Sweden as they kickstart this leg of the tour with a bang in honour of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish chemist.

The father and son duo will then hit the ice and go head-to-head in a curling competition alongside the Swedish Women’s Team in Stockholm.

Viewers have been loving the adventurous series so far.
