NOMAD'S LAND - CANADA
The Great North... ‘up north’ as the Canadians say, is one of the most isolated regions in the world. Although the Great North occupies 40% of Canada’s total surface area, the region is inhabited by only 0. 3% of the population. And all of them, each for their own reasons, but especially because of the size of the territory, are destined to be on the road one day or another. For over six months of the year, the temperature is below zero.
