Crossing Canada from north to south requires several means of travel. For 7 months, we are progressing by ski, canoe and bike, to cross the equivalent of 180 marathons.

An Inuk-inspired vision

"I met the team in 2018 when they arrived in Nain from their expedition from Schefferville to Nain, throught Nachvak Fjord. They had good will to do such a serious trip and were eager to take on another expedition. A good friend of mine, Jerry Kobalenko, had long dreamed of setting up an expedition to cross Canada from North to South. Inspired by this idea, I studied the route of a trans-Canadian expedition that I named "Imekutailik" (Arctic Tern) as part of a university course. For about three years, that trip was a personal goal but recurring injuries and life made this high unlikely in the near future. Canada North-to-South expedition is very creative, refreshingly so. Few people could genuinely pull this off but I believe they have a fighting chance, as a united team. Perhaps such a trip as this will replace classic routes and as so a better understanding of the complete picture of living and critically thinking of northern Canada."
