The furthest north you can drive in Canada is to Tuktoyaktuk in NorthWest Territories. However by late spring the ice road melts and you cannot drive the final 100 miles or so to get there.

It says 1960-1991, so I was a little skeptical when I tried Czechoslovakia and it wasn't accepted. Is there something wrong with those years?
