Travels far and wide.
Our annual travel issue has been on the stands for a few weeks already, but we’re not done exploring the North. Whether it’s braving the cold in our own backyard or marvelling at the wonders across the three territories, we’ve yet to run out of places and stories to discover.
In January, associate editor Jessica Davey-Quantick traveled to Nunavut for a project in collaboration with APTN. With stops in Rankin Inlet, Iqaluit and Pangnirtung, she will have plenty of stories to share from this epic trip. Keep your eyes open for a special section marking the 20th anniversary of Nunavut’s founding. Jessica got a real taste of winter travel in the Arctic when a blizzard grounded her flight and extended her stay in Rankin Inlet by almost a week. But it wasn’t too inconvenient as she came away with a brand new parka, hand crafted in true Kivalliq style and sporting blue fox trim. Meanwhile at Up Here HQ, we were working on our March issue, which you won’t want to miss because we’re revealing the winners of the magazine’s annual readers’ photo contest. For now, you can browse through last year's winners.
What travel adventures or misadventures have changed the way you see winter travel? Write us at email@example.com and tell us about them. We’re always on the hunt for the next Northern tale and the next way to get off the beaten path. Up Here also has a special birthday in 2019. All year long we’re celebrating 35 years of telling the North’s stories, and we’d love to hear about where Up Here has taken you, or where you’ve taken us. We’ll feature the best memories in a dedicated letters section in coming issues. As always, thanks for reading!
