Biking from Whitehorse to Inuvik - A Canadian Arctic Journey- The Dempster Highway

Maps | Yukon Links | NWT Links | Dempster Highway |


In 2002, I packed my bike in the bus and left the city of Edmonton for the capital city of the Yukon, Whitehorse. My final destination was Inuvik via the historical town of Dawson City an almost 1400 km trip by bicycle. I also carried a fishing rod stopping at rivers and creeks and camping along the way. I stopped at many small towns.

On my final stage I used the Dempster Highway a dirt road 732 km long crossing the Arctic circle. I also had the chance to see many black bears and grizzlies.

I ended my trip by taking the plane to the charming arctic village of Toktukyoktuk.
