LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Heliconia, the video production company behind the hit television show, "Epic Trails," has announced that its highly anticipated second season opener will feature Papua New Guinea, airing tonight on FOX Sports Network.
"Epic Trails" host, Eric Hanson, spent over a week in Papua New Guinea venturing on foot into the vastly untouched, raw nature of the country exploring the diverse landscapes and colorful culture. The episode features Hanson's expeditions, from his trek on the famous and historically-significant Kokoda Track led by PNG Trekking Adventures, to his experiences around the remote yet luxury Rondon Ridge, a Trans Niugini Tours property in the heart of the Highlands.
"When it boils right down to it, PNG is one of the most interesting locations I've ever traveled to—unique in every sense. There is no question that it is worth the trip to experience the mystique of Papua New Guinea," Hanson says.
Tune in tonight for the exciting premiere of "Epic Trails" highlighting Papua New Guinea! Following close behind the launch on FOX Sports Network, Season 2 of "Epic Trails" will begin airing on Outside TV.
"Epic Trails" fans can access more inspiring content on the "Epic Trail's" Facebook page, Instagram account and blog.
