Yukon & Alaska Van Adventure Tour from/to Whitehorse


Day 01
Arrival Whitehorse
Arrival in Whitehorse, airport transfer, meeting of group members, overnight in hotel.
Day 02
Whitehorse - Skagway, Alaska
After breakfast you have the opportunity to discover the famous capital of the Yukon, and your stops should include the MS Klondike, one of the last Yukon sternwheelers still around and a visit to the McBride Museum. Start of the grand voyages is early afternoon, and our van will set track towards Skagway. During this trip we will stop at the smallest desert in the world - the Carcross desert - and we will of course also admire Emerald Lake, called „Rainbow Lake“ by the locals due to its sensational coloration. Skagway, a hundred years ago the base camp for all Chilkoot Pass travelers is still a historic gold rush town. Many will preserved relics bear witness to its colorful past, including the head of the notorious Chilkoot Trail. In the evening one can relax and get a taste of the gold rush atmosphere in one of the historic bars, for example the „Red Onion Saloon“ once a brothel.
Day 03
Skagway - Haines
Via ferry we travel through the Lynn Fjord and with some luck we can see seals, whales, bald eagles and the giant Alaska brown bears, who make this area their home. Haines is known as an important centre of the native Tlingit culture and one can watch Totem pole carvers at work as well as visit the local theater where ceremonial Indian dances are shown.
Day 04
Haines - Haines Junction
We are following the Chilkat River where during fall salmon migration thousands of majestic bald eagles concentrate. After the Chilkat Pass we can view Million Dollar Falls in a pristine landscape along the Tatshenshini River. Before we arrive at Haines Junction we stop at Klukshu Village, where Indian people still catch salmon in a traditional manner
Day 05 -
Day 06
Kluane Nationalpark
Haines Junction, the gateway to Kluane National Park. We are setting up our base camp on the shores of the deep, blue Kluane Lake and explore the immense scenery of the Park during the next days. A hiking trip into one of the park's high alpine valleys may give us the chance to spot wildlife such as dall sheep, moose, caribou and grizzly bear. Depending on the level of interest among the passengers we can also organize a spectacular flight by helicopter over the immense glaciers of the park (optional). This adventure, over a virtually pristine wilderness, is especially spectacular during a clear day. With Haines Junction as a base one has a variety of options: what do you think of a horse back riding trip into the glaciated valley of the Alsek River or a tumultuous rafting tour down the world famous Tatshenshini River? This area is simply an adventure wonderland.
Day 07
Haines Junction - Tok
After leaving Haines Junction we drive besides the shores of scenic Kluane Lake. Mount Wallace, better known as Sheep Mountain is our first stop. Here, you will be able to spot the rare white dall sheep, and if you did not luck yesterday you have the possibility of joining a glacier flight in Burwash Landing. We cross the Alaska border in Beaver Creek and travel towards Tok, home of one of the best breed of husky dogs.
Day 08
Tok - Valdez
An early start via the Glen Highway and through the impressive scenery of the Wrangell Mountains will lead us deeper into Alaska. The Richardson Highway connects with the Pacific Ocean and the little harbor town Valdez is embedded into the beautiful coastal range. High water falls, roughed scenery and magnificent peaks have given this region the name „little Switzerland“, and the Trans Alaska Pipeline ends here.
Day 09
Valdez - Whittier - Portage
Today we drive our van onto the ferry and discover the marine world of Prince William Sound, one of the many highlights of this tour. The Columbia Glacier, one of the worlds most spectacular pictures and the variety of marine wildlife shall make this day an unforgettable one: Sea otter, seals, sea lions and puffins are common here, and with some luck you maybe able to spot orcas and humpback whales. Whittier, the end of our sea journey is home to the legendary Portage Glacier.
Day 10
Portage - Anchorage
The drive parallel to Turnagain Fjord towards Anchorage is another impressive highlight. Townday this afternoon.... yet different to most cities. Anchorage - the largest city in Alaska - is surrounded by a impressive mountains and a variety of deep fjords. A metropolitan in the middle of the Alaska wilderness - here city life, yet one hour away is the possibility to spot a grizzly or a moose. Lake hood, the world floatplane capital (yes, they really have over one thousand float planes here) with 800 takeoffs per day and the close-by Aviation Museum is a must for every visitor. You need some culture after this wilderness week: Well, downtown Anchorage is as close as you get this in Alaska: Museums, Theaters and Sopping Malls. And after hours, when the town with its many pubs, bars and restaurants comes alive. Our tip: Gwennies, the restaurant with the largest steaks combined with a gold rush thematic atmosphere.
Day 11
Anchorage - Denali National Park
Northbound via George Parks Highway towards Denali National Park, through incredible landscape. We overnight on a campground near the park entrance.
Day 12 -
Day 13
Denali National Park
The next highlight of the tour is a visit to Denali National Park with mighty Mt. McKinley, the highest peak in North America. We spend two days in and around the park and with some luck we will see dall sheep, moose, caribou and grizzly bears.
Day 14
Denali National Park - Fairbanks
We are again on the George Parks Highway and the compass needle is pointed northward. Nenana and the Alaska Railroad Museum is another point of interest en route towards Fairbanks, less than 200 km south of the polar circle. Fairbanks invites you to visit the dog mush museum or the many restaurants specialized in Alaska King Crabs... a true delicacy. Another possibility is to join the tour on a sternwheeler on the Chena River. Or choose the visit of „Crown of Light“ a slide show about the northern lights.
Day 15
Fairbanks - Tok
We have reached our most northerly point of this exciting journey and we cross the Tanana River directly abeam the Trans Alaska Pipeline. We also reach mile zero of the Alaska Highway in Delta Junction and we will stop in North Pole, the hometown of Santa Claus. Here it seems to be Christmas year round.
Day 16
Tok - Dawson City
We travel via the Top of the World Highway back towards Canada, right through sub-arctic mountain tundra, above timberline. Today we pass the most northern US-boarder at Little Gold Creek and small historic towns like Chicken, Action Jackson or Jack Wade Camp. Early afternoon we reach the Yukon River and set up camp next to the shores.
Day 17
Dawson City
We cross the Yukon River by ferry and start to discover Dawson,  the historic gold town and home of many legends. A visit to the Jack London and Robert Service cabins and the goldrush museum are on the program. A highlight is the drive into the Bonanza and Eldorado Creeks where we visit an active gold mine. Later we will drive up the „Midnight Dome“, the mountain overlooking Dawson. We can stroll through the quaint little town where so many buildings from the goldrush era are preserved. In the evening we watch Can-Can girls in the casino „Diamond Tooth Gerties“. Further recommended is a visit to the Palace Grand Theater with its musical about the gold rush
Day 18
Dawson City - Dempster Highway
We are leaving the fields of the Klondike today and will set up camp near the world famous Dempster Highway. 730 KM of gravel road linking the interior of Yukon Territory with Inuvik at the delta of the huge Mackenzie River in Northwest Territories. We camp at a delightful campground at the base of Tombstone Mountain.
Day 19
Tombstone Mountains
We do some spectacular hiking in this remarkable landscape of tundra and mountains. The Tombstone Mountains` unique moon landscape has proved early travelers in this region with an unmistakable landmark. Today we spend the last evening around the campfire and in tents.
Day 20
Dempster Highway - Whitehorse
Via the Klondike Highway we return to Whitehorse, following the mighty Yukon river basin. The Yukon River, over 3500 KM in length is one of the worlds longest water highways. The historic journey of the sternwheelers was only interrupted by the dangerous and infamous Five Finger Rapids - another stop of interest on the way to Whitehorse. Many relicts like old cabins, abandoned post stations and small settlements help us to relive the gold rush times. Hotel overnight in Whitehorse.
