5 + 8 / Dempster Highway

Dempster Highway / from Klondike Highway, close to Dawson City, in Yukon (Canada) to Inuvik (Northwest Territories), length of 736 km (457 mi). Very scenic gravel highway across miles of desolate Arctic landscape, in Canada. It’s the only all-weather road to cross the Arctic Circle. It's incredibly beautiful, somewhat dangerous and perhaps something you get to

see only once (if that) in your life. If your ideal road trip involves getting way off the beaten track then this is the drive for you. Requires careful planning. Ensure you have good spare tires and do some basic vehicle maintenance. Road number 5 in Yukon territory and 8 in Northwest Territories. This route includes a ferry.
