Yukon and Alaska are truly one of the last true frontiers! Your adventure begins on the Inside Passage in Juneau, where we journey through fjords to Haines, keeping an eye out for Orcas and Humpbacks. Visit historic Fort Seward and learn about totem poles. Continue north to Canada's Yukon Territory, to Kluane NP which, along with it's cross-border Wrangle-St. Elias NP, share the largest non-polar ice field in the world. Enjoy majestic mountain tops, dazzling coastal scenery, the highest summits and largest glaciers in North America (5000 of them) and endless horizons of blue sky and sheer space, great for hiking. Journey to a land of wolves, grizzly bears, caribou, moose, mountain goats, Dall sheep and abundant sea life including whales trawling the coasts and eagles soaring in the vast skies above.
Visit Whitehorse and Dawson City and experience the nostalgia of Gold Rush fever, a husky kennel, Klondike Steamship, Sam McGee's cabin and a natural history museum with skeletons of giants that once ruled the north such as Woolly mammoths, sabre-tooth tigers, and giant sloths, lions and bears. Visit remote McCarthy - Kennicott where we hike to Root Glacier and explore the historic abandoned Copper mine. Explore the maritime beauty and stunning coastline at the Kenai Fjords N.P. with it's abundant wildlife and one of the best places to see whales.
Experience the North with a variety of spectacular hikes, drives, small plane flights and boat journeys as well as the intriguing history of the famed Klondike Gold rush. Stake your claim by experiencing the North in a unique journey many dream of, but few will ever experience. Finish in Anchorage with our Farewell dinner or continue with a flight to world-famous Katmai NP, staying in a comfortable lodge with visits by floatplane to Brooks falls, which is home to the highest concentration of grizzlies (brown bears) known for their shear size. Experience this up close, in a setting that is likely unparalleled in the world.
