Ski crossing on the Great Slave Lake
The gateway to the Great North
Crossing on skis of the Great Slave Lake which is located in the Northwest Territories of Canada. 150 Kilometers route in the second largest lake in Canada and the deepest in North America. Puerta de entrada a la espesa taiga canadiense y una de las mejores zonas del mundo para ver auroras boreales. Gateway to the dense Canadian taiga and one of the best areas in the world to watch northern lights.
Our starting point will be the small town of Fort Resolution. This settlement dates from 1786 and for centuries was the center of the fur trade between the white men and Indians of the Chipewyan and Metis culture. The beginning of the journey will be the Slave River Delta in the south end of Slave Lake. The coast is pure colonization of the vast Canadian taiga, the perpetual forest of pine, birch and other northern trees.

During the time of the voyage, we will be in a deserted environment. During the day we will be accompanied by an endless white line on the horizon and during the night by the Northern Lights. This area of the planet is one of the best in the world to observe this light phenomenon. In the middle of the lake is actually the perfect place to watch them in all their glory by the absence of any light pollution.
 
Guided by the sun, the compass or GPS we will cross, day by day, the lake to Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories. A city founded by gold fever. La vieja ciudad todavía conserva el encanto de aquellos tiempos ya lejanos. The old city still retains the charm of those already distant times.
