Canada North to South Team Finish Epic Journey
The Canada north-to-south team was relatively quiet for the last two weeks, instead, they concentrated on speeding through the final miles to Canada’s southern tip.
On November 8 they arrived in Pointe-Pelée, southern Ontario, and dipped their feet into Lake Erie, marking the end of an epic journey. According to ExplorersWeb, their 7,600km (4,700 miles) journey could be the “longest wilderness expedition in Canada since Knud Rasmussen’s 30,000km (19,000 miles) Fifth Thule Expedition of 1921-24.”
Their journey took in ski, canoe, and bicycle sections and took nearly eight months. They set out at the end of winter from Ellesmere Island and have arrived on the Canada-US border at the start of the next winter.
Undoubtedly they’ll now get some well-earned rest.
