Klondike Explorer | In the Footsteps of Yukon Pioneers

Holiday Duration: 9 Nights

Overview

Overview

Visit the Yukon – home of the Klondike Gold Rush, Canada’s tallest mountains and the world’s largest non-polar ice field. This circular self-drive holiday explores the modern and ancient cultures of the Yukon, offering a perfect introduction to those wishing to enjoy this historic region on their own schedule.

Highlights include the Top of the World Highway, panning for gold, wildlife, wide open spaces and empty roads. A day in famous Dawson City, home of the Klondike Gold Rush and and time to visit Kluane National Park, offer the contrasts of this amazing part of Canada.

This holiday can also be extended, adding a few days after Dawson City to visit Eagle Plains, Inuvik and the Arctic Circle. Ask us for details.

Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!!! Two years ago we used this company for a holiday to BC and it was fantastic. This year we went to Alaska and the Yukon and Heidi organised the most wonderful trip, that went as smoothly as is possible. From the Arctic Circle to Kodiak Island everything was PERFECT (so rare in this day and age!!!) As for wildlife...wow! She arranged for us to travel by several different means of transport and to stay in a wide range of accommodation all of which gave us an idea of life in this vast area of North America. We are left with wonderful memories and thousands of beautiful photos.
