What does it take to reach Canada's Western Arctic in winter? To merely drive there is a man versus nature struggle, but to reach Tuktoyaktuk, 200 kilometers North of the Arctic Circle, by motorcycle? That is a battle of human spirit, skill and equipment against the very elements and Ice Roads that make this adventure so alluring.
Traveling 10,000 kilometers/ 6,000 miles in the middle of one of the coldest winters, two BMW F800 GS motorcycles and a X5 BMW for support depart Victoria, British Columbia for Canada's North. Set against a backdrop of retina-searingly stunning winter scenery, The North follows the Curbsyde Team of Joe & Flora Lloyd, Paul Mondor and Jesse Clark on their personal journeys to Tuktoyaktuk. From behind the visor and behind the camera, the adventure encompasses a true Northern experience, from - 47 deg C / -54 F days, snow storms, dog sledding in the iconic Yukon, snowmobiling, ice caves, the color-washed sky-scape of the Aurora Borealis and an ill fated collision with a dump truck. It is a story that runs the spectrum from mind blowing scenery to days of fighting for simple survival, where every kilometer of not crashing seemed a triumph. Enjoy this thrilling adventure, as told by the team members as they embark on one of the harshest rides and bone chilling adventures on the planet.
