YUKON CALLING!

The Yukon is a fabled land whose very name evokes archetypal images of wilderness and frontier populated by colourful characters. It is the land of untrammeled wilderness and the midnight sun, the sourdoughs of Bonanza Creek, Sam McGee, Diamond Tooth Gertie, the heroic men of the Northwest Mounted Police, and the inspiring sentiments of the bard of the Yukon, Robert Service.

On this tour we will experience both the natural and human landscapes of this fascinating and beautiful land, visiting the Klondike, the Dempster Highway and the Arctic Circle. We will visit Whitehorse and the heritage gold rush town of Dawson City. The tour also includes the famous, scenic railway journey on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad from Skagway, Alaska. The tour concludes with a day trip to the magnificently scenic gold rush village of Atlin, British Columbia. 

The heart of our adventure is the drive up the Dempster Highway from Dawson City to the Arctic Circle and the Richardson Mountains. The Dempster is the only public road in North America that extends north of the Arctic Circle. Along its route we cross two mountain ranges, traverse wild river valleys, muskeg and tundra. At latitude 66N we cross the Arctic Circle,

The Dempster is renowned as a naturalistís paradise with its varied and beautiful landscapes, its large mammals, wildflower displays, and much sought after birds such as Gyrfalcon, Willow Ptarmigan, Long-tailed Jaeger, Northern Hawk Owl, and Smithís Longspur.

Join us on this adventure to the Land of the Midnight Sun, the big country immortalized by Robert Service....the Yukon.
