Canada – There is only one road crossing the wilderness of Yukon, in Canada’s far north, to the Arctic Circle. A landscape of mountains and vast plains covered with endless forests, only interrupted by meandering rivers and azure blue lakes. It is the domain of bears, moose and many more wild animals. But it is mainly the traditional territory of the First Nations who, after more than a century of oppression, show their resilience and embrace their culture again.
