Land of Extremes
Venture deep into the heart of the majestic Canadian North Country, a vast canvas of towering landscapes and untouched nature, where the struggle for survival is at its most intense. Soar over spectacular Peace Athabasca Delta, which plays host to four major bird migrations that can bring a half million birds each spring, and double that number in autumn. Visit ghost town Pauline Cove on Herschel Island, and eerie monument to the once thriving whaling community. Discover the cascading waters of magnificent Virginia Falls, which is a third higher than Niagara Falls. Join polar bears as they navigate ice floes to hunt seals in Hudson Bay in Churchill. You’ll thrill to compelling footage of animals once doomed to extinction, including whooping cranes and the wood bison, and gaze awestruck at icebergs the height of five-story buildings. Season by season, witness how animals and plants face the challenges of living in some of the most extreme places on Earth.
