Outside with Greg Aiello

(Rochester, NY) – Greg Aiello, who was born and raised in Yosemite National Park, shares his love of the outdoors in Outside with Greg Aiello, airing Saturdays at 3:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV, beginning Saturday, August 31, 2019. Greg's love for the outdoors led him to work in the wild as a mountain guide, leading clients into the highest reaches of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California.

In this series Greg journeys to the mountainous Caribbean island of Dominica and to the Nordic nation of Iceland. He tours Dominica to see how the people and its tourism industry are rebuilding after being nearly wiped out by Hurricane Maria in 2017, and visits Iceland to see how fire and ice co-exist in a place that is rapidly growing as a top travel destination.
