Quest for the Bay

This reality-based series chronicles an eight-person volunteer team (seven men and one woman) as they attempt to recreate the journey made by fur traders of the Hudson's Bay Company during the 1840's by travelling from Winnipeg to Hudson Bay. The trip covers a distance of 1200 kilometers and takes the team though the heart of the Canadian wilderness. The crew members possess only the food and equipment used during the period, including a 40-foot wooden York Boat.
