Driving the most extreme machine

With few roads and lots of ice and snow, people in the Northwest Territories have interesting ways of getting around. One way: the Swedish-made Hägglunds Bv206, a tracked, amphibious, all-terrain vehicle often seen rumbling across the frozen surface of Great Slave Lake, carrying tourists between Yellowknife and a local wilderness-viewing and aurora-watching lodge.
