Ellesmere Light Expedition
Presented by John Dunn
Come on an adventure across Ellesmere Island with veteran Arctic traveller John Dunn as he brings the island to life with stories and images from this fascinating 750 km expedition. Over the course of 50 days, John and fellow Canmore resident Clive Rubens relied on some ingenious and lightweight equipment to solve the many challenges posed by a long summer journey in the High Arctic.
John Dunn has been exploring Canada's Arctic for 30 years and has racked up 11,500 km of sled-hauling during 25 expeditions. His journeys include a six month skiing, kayaking and hiking expedition along the length of Baffin Island: images from that journey were featured in National Geographic. In 2019 he plans to complete the final section of "Journey North": an 8000 km string of expeditions through Canada from Tofino to the top of Ellesmere Island.
