80 DEGREES NORTH

80 Degrees North chronicles the tale of the first Canadian Arctic Expedition, 1913-1918. Commanded by the famous Arctic explorer, Vilhjalmur Stefansson and his colleague, R.M. Anderson. The expedition encountered tremendous challenges such as extreme weather, the loss of their flagship, the Karluk, that became crushed in the ice and subsequently sank. The Inuit also became valued and vital members of the expedition. Without them, it is unlikely the efforts of the explorers and scientists would have paid off. This is an epic tale of adventure and drama.
