Starting and ending in Whitehorse, the tour Yukon And Alaska Explorer is a guided active and outdoor trip that takes 13 days. You will be traveling through Haines Junction Village, Skagway, Haines and 5 other destinations in the USA and Canada. Yukon And Alaska Explorer is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

The remote land of the Yukon 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 and wildlife with fascinating goldrush history. White Pass and Yukon Railroad - Follow the journey of the Gold Rush stampeders on the spectacular vintage mountain railway from Carcross to Skagway Kluane National Park - Spot eagle and grizzly bear, or choose to take a helicopter flight, taking a birds-eye view of the worlds largest non-polar icefields Dawson - Relax in the one-time 'Paris of the North', now a living museum of Gold Rush history on the banks of the Yukon River

“This trip was amazing and definitely worth the cost. The variety of activities provided made it totally memorable.

The only think I would possibly change would be to fly back down from Chiang Mai to Bangkok rather than taking the overnight train again.”

“The trip was one of my most amazing holidays ever, the wildlife surpassed all expectations, the scenery on mainland Ecuador was excellent.

Despite the start of the rainy season, we were very lucky, the clouds cleared so we could see Cotopaxi and some other volcanoes.

My only criticism, is that the walks on the mainland could have been a little longer!”
