Heliconia is proud to announce that their new series, Epic Trails, will premiere on Outside TV on Thursday, August 3rd at 10:30pm ET/ 7:30pm PT. The half-hour, premiere episode follows show host, Eric Hanson, as he travels along the Jordan Trail by foot—a 400-mile trail offering 40 days of hiking and connecting over 50 villages and towns through the heart of Jordan.
“We traveled Jordan from North to South along the incredible Jordan Trail; affording us what can only be considered a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the rich diversity and beauty of this country,” explains Hanson. “Exploring the many regions touched by the Jordan Trail more than exceeded my expectations and it was truly special for all of us on so many levels.”
“It was an honor to be approached by Heliconia for Jordan to be the host country for the premiere episode of Epic Trails,” says Deputy Director of the Jordan Tourism Board, North America, Janine Jervis. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I hope will entice travelers to come and capture the generosity of the Jordanian people and their eagerness to make all visitors feel welcome.”
Epic Trails will air on Outside TV and will follow Eric Hanson on his adventures around the globe in search of the world’s top trails. Watch the episode teaser here: https://youtu.be/2Gmke-pxi2Q
