Alaska Adventures – Eng

The purpose of the TransCanada Alaska Expedition is to retrace the trails used by the pioneers in the Gold Rush through different expeditions on skis and on foot, by bike and canoe, crossing parts of Canada and Alaska, including during the dreadful polar winter.
Alaska 2019 Ski Walking Winter Expedition will be the last part of this project.

Chilkoot Trail 2018 is at the heart of the project. An itinerant documentary by Rai 2 – Italy’s public broadcaster – on this famous path will tell the adventures of the legendary Klondike gold rush.
