International explorer, photographer, author, and television host Josh Bernstein has traveled more than 1,000,000 miles by train, plane, bus, bike and camel to over 65 countries, exploring the biggest mysteries of our planet in pursuit of knowledge and discovery.

Josh has traced the Ark of the Covenant from the caverns of Jerusalem to the mountains of Ethiopia, searched for the Holy Grail in the bowels of Nazi Germany, and communed with tribal chiefs in the darkest jungles of the Amazon Rainforest. He has ventured deep underground with NASA scientists to explore the origins of life on Earth and has hunted with alleged cannibals by moonlight in the forests of Papua New Guinea--all in a quest to uncover some of the most fascinating mysteries of our planet.

Josh's television career began when he debuted as the host of a new adventure-archaeology series called Digging for the Truth on The History Channel. The series quickly became the highest-rated original series in the network's history. Later, Josh moved to Discovery Channel, where he served as host and executive producer of Into the Unknown with Josh Bernstein. Josh is currently developing a number of new projects.

In addition to his work on television, Josh is also the president and CEO of the Boulder Outdoor Survival School, the oldest and largest wilderness survival school in the world. Josh is a fellow of The Explorers Club and The Royal Geographical Society and a patron of the American Museum of Natural History.
