Season 3 of Trekkit TV kicks off with our three part series filmed in Newfoundland and started airing on Bell Aliant TV1 this fall season (2014).
In Newfoundland Part I – Hiking, Eating and Icebergs, our first destination was Twillingate to see a real Iceberg. This was a life long dream of the crew. Skipper Jim took us out on his boat to see the Iceberg and we were able to capture some amazing footage. What a difference seeing it live! We then explored the East Coast Trail on a foggy day and visited a community that was abandoned in 1966. We taste some local Newfoundland cuisine and then off to George Street to get screeched in!
In the second episode Newfoundland Part II – Hops and History, we visit Quidi Vidi and The Quidi Vidi Brewing Company where we sample local brew, including beer made from melted Icebergs (its the best!). Not only do we taste the local brew but learn about the history of Newfoundland. We complete the day with a visit to Cape Spear and Signal Hill. There is even a Titanic twist in the full episode.
In the third and final episode, Newfoundland Part III – East Coast Trail, join Newfoundland’s own, Rodney McAffee, as he films and edits his first video — the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland. He hikes the East Coast Trail and shows you some spectacular geological wonders like sea stacks and The Spout. From the high cliffs on the trail, Rodney gets a great view of whales and Icebergs.
Join us in this three part series as we explore this wonderful island.
