We have arrived in Whitehorse, Yukon after an amazing drive up through Northern BC and the Southern Yukon!

Our next stop is Dawson City before setting out on the Dempster Highway up to the Arctic circle.

The southern boundary of the Arctic circle is the lowest latitude where 24h daylight can be experienced, which occurs on the summer solstice.

The Arctic Circle boundary is variable with time. The planet tilts back and forth on it’s axis every year providing seasons. However, the amount of tilt is variable by about 2 degrees over a 41 000 year cycle.

Since we will be arriving at the Arctic Circle boundary about two weeks after the solstice we will have to continue north before reaching 24h daylight.

Our final destination of Tuktoyaktuk is several hundred kilometres north of the Arctic Circle boundary, it’s the green point on the map!

Nous avons trouvé un site de fracturation hydraulique à quelques kilomètres du cercle polaire. 🙄Non à la fracturation hydraulique! ✊
