Jan/Feb 2018

We're ringing in the new year with our annual travel issue.

Learn everything you need to know before taking a trip to the North—from those who live here. From an insider's guide to pan-territorial travel, to an upclose look at the North's newest roadtrip—Dawson City, Yukon to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT—this is the authentic Northern travel guide.

Also in this issue, we land on a remote island in the Arctic Archipelago to learn how the story of the Franklin Expedition is being unravelled by Inuit historians and underwater archaeologists. And we get a first-hand account of paddling from Yellowknife to Baker Lake, Nunavut, and find out that misadventure isn't the only way to get a good story out of a trip.

Happy New Year, and happy reading!
