They attempt to retrace a gruelling 600-mile journey through one of the world's last great wildernesses. It takes them from the coast of Alaska to the gold fields of the Klondike, a remote region on the edge of the Canadian arctic. It is a journey first undertaken by tens of thousands of gold seekers - men and women from around the globe who in the last years of the 19th century dropped everything and set off for the Klondike in the hope of striking it rich.

The Gold Rush
2 March 2017 | by joruinSee all my reviews

I am Norwegian and live in Norway. My grandfather went to USA in 1901 and worked for a year to have some money. Then he went to Klondyke to dig gold. He went up the Yukon river to Dawson. He found gold and stayed there for two seasons. When the earth was frozen, he survived by catching animals, and I suppose maybe he sold some as well. He travelled with a Scottish friend, and when they left Dawson, they bought a fleet from Indians and travelled down the river. It has been great to see this series and thinking that Gullak has been there and done that.

Thank you !
