The Quest (La quête de Philippe)

The dogs are back! Every April, Nunavut mushers engage in the week-long Nunavut Quest sled dog race across the northern Baffin region. In 2010 Piksuk crews traveled with the race through the spectacular Baffin Island landscape from Pond Inlet to Clyde River.

180 dogs, 135 humans and 45 snowmobiles made for a dramatic procession as we faced blizzards, cracking sea ice and witnessed dramatic climate change that’s sweeping across the Arctic.

LA QUETE DE PHILIPPE is currently being broadcast by Radio-Canada through its regional services. A six-part series for APT is being completed and will be broadcast in Inuktitut and English later this year. An interactive website and a dog-sledding video game is under construction.
