The Best of Yukon and Alaska

Why not take a small group tour of one of Canada’s most northern provinces combined with Alaska.

Leaving Whitehorse, the Yukon’s capital, you’ll travel through some of North America’s most pristine wilderness landscapes, spectacular scenery, communities on modern highways following ancient wildlife corridors, historic First Nations trading routes and Gold Rush trails. Along the way, experience a vast array of impressive mountain ranges, cascading glaciers, First Nations culture and unique Gold Rush history.

The tour visits three of the North’s most famous national parks, including Yukon’s Kluane – home to Canada’s tallest mountain and the world’s largest ice-field (non-polar), Denali, North America’s premier wildlife viewing location and home to the tallest mountain on the continent, or perhaps join an optional tour to the all-marine Kenai Fjords National Park, which offers North’s premier marine life viewing.

For the more adventurous consider alternatively a self drive tour starting in Whitehorse, spend time exploring the Headwaters of the Yukon River, cross the border into the US before descending to the coastal town of Skagway in Alaska, catch the Alaska Marine Highway to Haines, take a trip to Glacier Bay – this remote and beautiful National Park is only accessible by air or boat, transfer back to Haines and continue a breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic drive to Haines Junction, gateway to Kluane National Park, drive up the Klondike Highway towards Dawson City – The Klondike is widely considered to be the location of the greatest gold rush ever; return to Whitehorse for your journey home.

Yukon is a great location for viewing the spectacle that is the Northern Lights, think about a visit between September and April specifically for this.
