Crossed Canada lately? John's quest was to find a wild route through the country from south to north. Over the course of 400 days and several expeditions he covered almost every kilometer from Tofino to the northern tip of Ellesmere Island. "Journey North" is the story of those expeditions, and a grand celebration of the great Canadian wilderness.

John Dunn has been exploring Canada's Arctic and other regions for 30 years and has racked up 12,500 km of sled-hauling. His journeys include a six month skiing, kayaking and hiking expedition along the length of Baffin Island. Images from that trip were published in National Geographic. In April 2020 John and colleague Graeme Magor hope to ski from Ellesmere Island to Greenland. Tickets sell out early, so get them now.
