MUMBAI: Lifestyle channel TLC has launched a new travel series for the restless traveller- 'Xtreme Tourist', with host and travel enthusiast Ernie Harker.
The show airs every Sunday at 9 pm on TLC.
While travelling, Harker does not just tick off a list of must-visit countries, but fervently seeks out new experiences while taking part in adrenaline-pumping activities like skydiving, hang gliding, surfing and rock climbing in each place.
Harker travels to exotic and iconic destinations around the world, including Cancun, Belize and Rio de Janeiro for some extreme sports action.
Discovery South Asia senior VP, GM Rahul Johri said, "TLC is India's favourite destination for travel. Having reinvented the travel theme and its wide-ranging manifestations from luxury to self-driving trips, TLC has delivered on its promise of bringing the best of travel across the globe. We are delighted to introduce yet another format that Indians are excited and enthused about- adventure travel."
The show airs in TLC's 'Just [email protected]' programme band dedicated to showcasing the best of travel across the world in diverse formats ranging from weekend getaways, road trips, luxury holidays, spa vacations and culinary expeditions, amongst many others.
In one episode the show's host goes to Seattle. Ernie takes on America's Pacific Northwest and the Snoqualmie Falls. He also rock climbs the famous REI Pinnacle and finds himself mountain biking the I-5 Colonnade Trail. If that's not all, he goes on a cruise on Lake Union and then does kayaking at Portage Bay.
