To celebrate Canada’s 150th in 2017, Adam Shoalts is embarking on a 5 month journey alone across Canada’s mainland Arctic, crossing 4000 kilometers on foot, by packraft, and canoe in one of the most ambitious solo wilderness journeys ever attempted. He will start on the international border between Canada and Alaska and finish on the saltwater of Hudson Bay. His journey will take him over mountains, up rivers, across tundra, through subarctic forest, and down wild waterways in the heart of the world’s greatest wilderness. Help make this dream a reality by donating to the fundraising campaign. Even small amounts can help…and check back here for updates of his progress alone across the Arctic!
