At the age of 22, Parker has already struck it rich in the Klondike by mining over $13 million dollars’ worth of gold. But he’s always wondered – is he tough as the original stampeders?

Now together with three friends – foreman Rick Ness, wilderness guide Karla, and filmmaker James, Parker will journey unaided 600 miles over a mountain range, lakes and the mighty Yukon River all the way from Parker’s home at the start of the original trail to the goldfields of the Klondike and the legendary Dawson City. Along the way, they plan to hunt and fish for food, paddle and sail before the river freezes and find gold and stake a gold claim before just like the old timers did 120 years before them.
