(Toronto, ON) February 6, 2013 – Travel+Escape, Canada’s only national adventure-themed travel channel is proud to announce it has begun a 2-month National Free Preview this week until March 31, 2013.

This month Canadians are going to see the world with some of the most unlikely, and travel-hardened characters around, beginning with the exclusive premiere of Boundless, Sunday, February 17 at 9pm ET/PT. Viewers will meet Simon and Turbo, two best friends challenging each other in some of the world’s toughest marathon competitions.

On Sundays at 10pm ET/10:30pm PT viewers will bike across Ethiopia in Offbeat Roads with the madman Scott Robinson as he leads 15 other cyclists through the Danakil Depression – the world’s lowest and hottest desert.

Finally, this towering New York chef has only 3 things on his mind; food, booze and trouble with a scheduled stop in Toronto for one of his patented 24-48 hour layovers. Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover season 2 premieres Wednesday, February 27 at 10pm ET/PT

“This winter is all about pushing yourself past your physical and mental limits, and that’s just what these guys do,” said Vanessa CaseEVP Programming & MarketingBlue Ant Media. “Some of them will cycle through their limits, some will run, jump and climb through theirs, and others will eat and drink through them.”

Stay tuned after the free preview ends for more Travel+Escape exclusive premieres. Rebel Without a Kitchen features entrepreneur Matt Basile, AKA Fidel Gastro, who’s taking the gastronomic experience to unique new places as he sets up shop wherever there’s space. BBQ Crawl’s BBQ Champion Danielle Dimovski sets out to hit some of the best BBQ joints North America has to offer, and win couple competition titles along the way.
