After 120 days and nearly 2,500 miles in bone-chilling conditions, the couple’s incredible adventure was over. However, they still had the photographs of their expedition – epic captures of the freezing white expanses through which they had traveled and the trusty dogs by their side to draw them through the snow. They remembered the chocolate, too – 66 pounds of the confection that helped sustain them during their trip. And while reminiscing, the pair also agreed on another point: the whole journey was like no winter vacation they had ever experienced before.

Erik Boomer and Sarah McNair-Landry embarked on their extraordinary adventure in February 2015 and would go on to circumnavigate Baffin Island in the remote Canadian Arctic on a sled pulled by 14 Canadian Inuit dogs. What’s more, their photographs of the trip reveal a breathtaking landscape – one as stunningly beautiful as it is frightening and hostile.
