Why book this trip?

Surrounded by wildlife and spectacular scenery in Yukon's awe-inspiring national parks, this trip is an immersion into one of Canada's wildest landscapes. We follow part of the epic journey of the Klondike Stampeders, a journey that began in 1896 upon the discovery of gold in the Yukon river. We explore the historic towns of Dawson and Whitehorse; take the spectacular mountain railway from Carcross to Skagway, and spot eagles and grizzly bears in Kluane National Park before traversing the 'top of the World\ Highway, one of Canada's greatest drives.

    Itinerary

    Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

    Day 1 - Join trip in Whitehorse

    Our trip begins today in Whitehorse. On arrival we have time to relax or explore the town.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 2 - Explore Whitehorse on foot; visit Miles Canyon and the SS Klondike

    The discovery of gold in the Klondike (a tributary of the Yukon River) in 1896 changed the course of history for Whitehorse, now the capital of the Yukon territory. Previously inhabited by First Nations people, the area around the Yukon River's treacherous White Horse rapids was settled by crowds of prospectors, all hoping to make their fortunes through prospecting for gold. The area became known colloquially as Whitehorse, and although the river was dammed in the 1950s and the rapids were submerged, the name has stuck. Today we immerse ourselves in Gold Rush history as we visit the MacBride Museum and its collection of artefacts and pictures, depicting life as it was at the turn of the century, along with profiles of the town's colourful characters, many of whom made or lost their fortunes in Whitehorse. We also discover the SS Klondike, a magnificently restored sternwheeler boat that represents a time when riverboats and rail were the Yukon's only links to the outside world. After spending time amid the old restored buildings and the Gold Rush sites, we head to Miles Canyon, just a short way from the city. Walking across the suspension bridge we will see the emerald river carving its way through the mountains; before a dam was erected, this river would be peppered with rapids, through which daring stampeders would make their way as they travelled to Whitehorse.

    Day 3 - Walk in Carcross desert; train ride to Skagway (Alaska, USA) over the old White Pass and Yukon Railroad

    This morning we drive to Carcross, home to the Carcross Desert. We spend a short time walking across the sand dunes that make up this tiny area, and take in the views of the surrounding mountains - it's bizarre to think that during winter the sand is covered over by snow, and the area is used for cross-country skiing and snowboarding. We then head to the railway depot to board our train across the mountains to Skagway in Alaska. The railroad was built in 1898 to connect Skagway with Carcross to ease the passage of the stampeders - prior to this, the trail was attempted on foot, earning the nickname 'The Dead Horse Trail' for the estimated 3,000 horses that died in just 2 years. Today we can appreciate the spectacular panoramas of mountains, glaciers, gorges and waterfalls from the comfort of our vintage train carriages, as we wind up through the Yukon mountain range. We break our journey at Bennett to stretch our legs and admire the mountainous scenery around this lakeside village. This remote outpost is accessible only by this train or a 50km hike, and after a short visit we continue on the train to summit the White Pass and descend into Skagway.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Lunch

    Day 4 - Ferry to Haines; visit Tlingit Village

    The itinerary for the next two days depends on the ferry schedule, which is usually released in spring. If the ferry is in the morning, we jump on board and take our 45 min journey towards Haines through the Taiya inlet, flanked by mountains on either side. On arrival we have the privilege of visiting a Tlingit indigenous village, home to the Tlingit community who were the first settlers in the area around the Chilkat Valley many hundreds of years ago. Their traditions still flourish today in the songs, dances, languages and stories passed on from generation to generation, and we will learn a little about their lives during our visit. We have the afternoon free for optional activities, including a rafting excursion (not white water) on the Chilkat River, through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve and either a kayaking excursion or nature and bear watching on the Chilkoot Lake. All activities will be in locations where bears, wolves, moose and eagles are frequently spotted, surrounded by towering mountains, hanging glaciers and lush forests.

    If the ferry is in the afternoon, we will do a morning hike in the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical park before our departure for Haines. We will visit the Tlingit community in the afternoon and catch up on the optional activities tomorrow.

    Day 5 - Drive to Haines Junction (Yukon, Canada); views of the Kluane mountains

    Depending on the ferry schedule yesterday, we may catch up on any missed optional activities this morning before heading off on our four hour drive to Haines Junction, crossing back into Canada en route. On the way, we visit the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, a state park and wildlife refuge home to the world's largest concentration of bald eagles, where we may see these majestic birds in the flesh. The Haines Highway is noted for the grand views of the Kluane mountain range with its magnificent glaciers, and the variety of scenery from coastal forest near Haines to alpine tundra at the highest point, before descending to Haines Junction. During the drive we will stretch our legs on some of the trails, one of which is an easy 45min walk to Kathleen Lake, a beautiful blue lake at the base of the mountains, surrounded by alpine forest. Arriving at the cabins south of Haines Junction in the late afternoon, we spend the next two nights in a simple cabin in the wilderness of Kluane National Park, with shared shower facilities.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 6 - Walks in Kluane National Park; optional scenic flight

    Kluane National Park is dominated by North America's highest mountain range, the Saint-Elias range. There are many hiking trails here of varying difficulties, lasting between 2-5 hours, and our Explore Leader will take us on a trail that suits our abilities. Whichever trail we do, we will have the feeling of being truly in the wilderness, surrounded by spectacular mountains and hiking through forest up to barren tundra. In the afternoon we are free to enjoy this paradise. There is the opportunity to take a scenic flight over the national park, flying over the most spectacular sections of the mighty Kaskawulsh and South Arm Glaciers, with the mountains of the Kluane Range spreading endlessly before us.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 7 - Travel to Tok (Alaska, USA); walks in Kluane National Park

    We cross the border once again into Alaska during our scenic drive to Tok. During this 6 hour journey we explore one of the ghost towns that sprang up as gold was found in the Kluane Lake area. These villages were transient and the boom of gold prospecting died out as quickly as it began, leaving these smaller settlements to go to ruin. Ruins and graves are now scattered through the forest, and we take the opportunity to visit the ghostly 'Silver City', somewhat ironically named but bearing no relation to any other precious metals found in the area! We have plenty of other opportunities to stretch our legs during the drive as we walk amid the outstanding panoramas of the Kluane range, exploring the rivers and forests that lie beyond trails just off the road. Today's night stop is a typical motel just outside of Tok.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 8 - Drive to Dawson (Yukon, Canada) along the 'Top of the World' Highway; visit living museum at Chicken Village

    Heading out of Tok, our first stop is at Chicken Village, a living museum of Gold Rush and Alaskan frontier history that has a year-round population of only a few dozen inhabitants. We join a daily tour of the town (this visit may include people who are not travelling with our Explore group), which is less of a tour and more of a viewing of the small handful of buildings that make up the settlement. The old wooden houses are fascinating, and we visit the school house, which was home to 'Tisha', the name given to Chicken's most famous inhabitant, the teacher Anne Hobbs Purdy. Anne later co-wrote a book recounting the difficulties of living in this close-set community, where there were many prejudices against the indigenous children whom she was dedicated to educating. Leaving Chicken Village we take a scenic woodland walk to a viewpoint over the Cowden Dredge, a dilapidated Gold Rush dredge on the Mosquito Fork River, abandoned in its wild location in the 1930s. We then continue on our adventure and join the 'Top of the World Highway' towards Dawson, Canada. Meandering over the ridges far above the treeline, the endless views over the rough, lonely landscape are quite spectacular, with rolling hills and barren shrub, perforated by alpine trees. Towards the end of August, the land turns brightly autumnal with a blanket of almost unreal reds, yellows and oranges spreading before us. The road is rough in places and weather can be erratic, but the adventure and feeling of being alone in the wilderness is incredibly memorable. We return to civilisation in the early evening, as we arrive into Dawson city.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 9 - Walking tour of Dawson; optional boat trip on Yukon River

    Exploring Dawson on foot, we visit some of the beautifully restored wooden buildings and bustling streets that once gave this city the nickname 'Paris of the North', harking back to a time when it was one of the most wealthy and influential cities in North America. Dawson is an intrinsic part of Gold Rush history, and with the facades and shopfronts of the era still intact, walking around the city seems somehow like stepping back in time. A quirk to our discovery of this historic city is our exploration of the 'Paddlewheel Graveyard' on the banks of the Yukon river, home to the remains of around seven historic paddlewheel boats, abandoned here as land travel became more popular and now heavily overgrown with woodland. The wrecks look almost as if they crashed onto shore and after years of their wooden struts rotting away they have an almost ghostly appearance, their sad remains poking through the trees. The afternoon is free to explore Dawson; we may choose to take a boat trip up the Yukon River, discover the SS Keno, a restored vessel now a museum, or visit the Jack London Interpretive Centre. The writer of Call of the Wild and White Fang is one of the region's most famous residents, and set these iconic tales in the Yukon during the time of the Gold Rush itself. This museum is a labour of love by historians, who are obviously fans of his work. We can also discover Dredge Number 4, the best and most well restored old Gold Dredge, dating back to 1912 and now of great historical importance in the area.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 10 - Free day in Dawson

    Today we have a full free day in Dawson to explore the city further, and to visit some of the museums and other spots that we didn't have time to see yesterday. There is also the option to hire bikes for half a day and explore the city's beautiful surroundings, or learn more about the region's goldmining history with a tour of a family-run working mine in the traditional goldfields of the Klondike.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Day 11 - Explore the walking trails of Tombstone Territorial Park

    Today we head to Tombstone Territorial Park to explore the walking trails and wildlife found in this hiker's paradise. There are many different trails to explore, including the hike up to the Grizzly Lake viewpoint. The region encapsulates the spirit of the Yukon territory - virgin nature, solitude and the habitat of grizzly bears, in a setting of craggy, imposing mountains. After spending time in the nature, we head back to Dawson for the late afternoon. Here we can try another of Dawson City's traditions - the Sourtoe Cocktail. Established in 1973, this is exactly what it sounds like - an actual human toe that has been dehydrated and preserved, ready to gruesomely garnish a drink of your choice.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 12 - Drive to Whitehorse

    On our final full day in the Yukon, we set off back to Whitehorse from Dawson this morning. The drive will take approximately 7 hours in the vehicle, but we aim to stop a couple of times en route, perhaps at the Tintina Trench Viewpoint or the Five Finger Rapids. When gold was discovered in the Klondike in 1896, the Yukon River was thought to be unnavigable above Five Finger Rapid - the rapids were a major obstacle along the route, and more than a few daring Stampeders ended up in the water after choosing the wrong channel, or 'finger'. We arrive in Whitehorse in the early evening.

    Unlike other Explore trips, during our trips in North America our Explore leaders will not operate a tips kitty. However, they will be more than happy to provide guidance throughout the trip on who to tip when and to suggest appropriate amounts.
    Local fees
    Beauty always comes at a price and the wonderful isolation of the Yukon and Alaska is reflected in the price of everyday items which normally have to be imported at great costs.

    Why book this trip

    The Yukon is an unspoilt wilderness that Explore are privileged to visit. This remote land offers the same dramatic sceneries that the Canadian Rockies and Alaska have in spades - massive snow-covered mountains inhabited by wolves and bears, and emerald lakes flanked by pine forest - but the Yukon's absence of real tourism gives it a sense of isolation like no other. This trip couples outstanding natural beauty with fascinating goldrush history and includes a ride on the historic Whitepass and Yukon Route railway that cuts through the mountains linking the Yukon to Alaska.
