Ice Road Truckers™ returns for a second high-tension season, but this time around, the job takes them even farther north - 100 miles inside the Arctic Circle. The adventure takes off in Inuvik, a small town where freak blizzards, polar bears, -50° C temperatures, and isolation are all too common.
Most dangerous of all are the new ice roads, built not only on rivers, but miles out into the Arctic Ocean! Even slight miscalculations in speed can force the frigid water to crash up through the ice with catastrophic consequences for man and machine. Just how punishing are the conditions? One of the team members quits before he makes it to the ice!You’ll be right beside the truckers as they face mountains of ice, deadly cold, extreme hardship, and equipment that collapses under the strain of the elements. It’s a treacherous, bone-numbing job – just the kind of challenge that keeps this special breed of driver coming back for more.
