The White March Part I DLC triggers near the beginning of Act II of the main campaign after completing the quest

. We'd recommend completing most if not all of Act II before venturing to the White March. If you head there right away, then you'll probably have some success but get dominated in the boss and bounty fights.
If you complete almost all of the main campaign before starting the DLCs, then you can play a scaled version where the battles will still be tough for you, but where the rewards won't change.
