CHEVY CHASE, MD/NEW YORK (February 5, 2013) - Travel Channel joins with Sports Illustrated for an up-close-and-personal excursion to the exotic locales featured in the 2013 edition of SI Swimsuit multi-platform franchise.

This year's Swimsuit production is a groundbreaking effort that brought the models and team to all seven continents - an unprecedented achievement -- to capture the breathtaking imagery from the farthest corners of the globe. This includes the first fashion shoot to take place on the ice-covered terrain in Antarctica.
