Surviving the Fundy Footpath
‘Surviving the Fundy Footpath’ is an adventure doc that follows mega-novice Bruce Persaud, a city slicker from Toronto, with zero camping experience, as he attempts to complete one of Canada’s toughest multi-day hikes, the treacherous Fundy Footpath. Bruce was accompanied by a team of veteran guides including 70-year-old footpath founder Alonzo Leger, his son and current trail master, Marc Leger and locally famous environmental scientist Ben Phillips. Follow along as Bruce and company climb in and out of nineteen steep ravines, traverse stunning Bay of Fundy mega tidal zones, and navigate their way through 65 kilometres of dense old growth Acadian fog forest.
