The Cold Way Round? Charley Boorman Set for Canada Adventure

charley_boormanCharley Boorman will be taking a television crew across Canada to film a new reality TV series this summer. Ewan McGregor, Boorman’s typical partner on long distance trips, won’t be joining for the new series.

Boorman and McGreggor have filmed two adventure touring journeys together. The Long Way Round, which literally brought the two adventurers around the world, and The Long Way Down, which documented their journey through Africa. Boorman’s adventure this summer will be called Extreme Frontiers: Canada.

“On this expedition Charley will be visiting the provinces and territories of Canada, and taking part in 20 amazing adventures,” says the Extreme Frontiers Facebook Page. “From sailing through icebergs in St. John’s Newfoundland, to exploring Al Capone’s Prohibition tunnels in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, Charley will fill his days with the extreme, the challenging, the very of best adventure travel.”

Boorman will be joined by his pal and director Russ Malkin on his trip. The show will air on channel 5 in the UK in early 2012. No word as to when it will be available in the states.
