La ruée vers l'or

Documentary
French

Ten adventurers leave their families and the comforts of modern life to relive the great history of the Klondike Gold Rush, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will take them from Alaska to the Yukon. The series chronicles 3 months of white-water rafting on makeshift craft loaded with tons of Klondike-era equipment and supplies and plenty of heavy hauling through the Rockies. The extreme conditions our prospectors are subjected to are identical to those experienced by 10,000 French Canadians at the end of the 19th century, but that doesn’t stop them from gathering up the courage and the will to make history repeat itself.
