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.
