Explore some of the most scenic and untouched natural areas on planet Earth

 

Traverse Alaska and Canada’s untouched Yukon Territory on this two-guide, dedicated walking tour which explores some of the most untouched areas on planet Earth. Canada’s northernmost province is a vast territory within the Arctic Circle and the Arctic Ocean. Homeland of American Indians and Inuit, Yukon is North America’s largest remaining wild land.

With a full range of guided hikes throughout Alaska and the Yukon Territory, you can really scratch below the surface of an area with a rich Gold Rush history, and teaming with wildlife in their natural habitat.

Ferry from Skagway to Haines to visit an historic Tinglit Indian site as well as a Bald Eagle Reserve, plus visit the Jack London interpretation centre in Dawson City. Kluane National Park is one of unceasing beauty with its pine tree forests, wide glacial valleys, tundra setting and its glacier-peaked mountain range, home to a population of wolves, Grizzly Bear, salmon and eagles.

Visit Diamond Tooth Gerties in Dawson City, one of Canada’s oldest gambling halls and the wilderness city of Whitehorse. Visit Tombstone Territorial Park, a unique wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife.

With spectacular skies and the midnight sun extending summer days, this bucket list essential is the ultimate experience for wildlife, walking and photography enthusiasts.

*Please note:* this tour visits some extremely remote areas. There will be almost no mobile reception and you are likely to see more wildlife than you will humans. The Yukon and Alaska are dictated to by the environment and as a result, there may be some services which change.
