Yukon and Alaska

June is the perfect time to set off on a journey through the Yukon and Alaska as there are fewer tourists, pleasant temperatures and long daylight hours. It is thanks to years of visiting this extraordinary part of the world that we have curated a 17-day journey filled with unique experiences. Spend time with a Yukon Quest Sled Dog Racing Legend and share in the lively banter of his Sled Dog Team. Travel over an ancient trail to the Tombstone Mountains. Learn the ancient ways of the First Nations with an Elder on a Yukon River cruise. Catch a glimpse of a grizzly bear feeding on salmon in Eagle Creek. Fly over the spectacular Juneau Ice fields with an Alaskan Bush Pilot to a family owned wilderness lodge for lunch. No one is left indifferent when discovering this land of vibrant culture and endless landscapes.
