Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival Whitehorse
Individual journey of the participants to Whitehorse. Welcome to Canada’s Yukon. At the airport, you will be welcomed by your tour-guide. Transfer to the hotel. Meeting with your fellow travellers. (Overnight accommodation in Whitehorse).
Day 2: Whitehorse - Haines Junction
After breakfast you will get a general view of the Yukon’s capital. Part of it may be a visit to the restored sternwheeler MS Klondike next to the Yukon River. The big roundtrip will begin with a first short stage on the Alaska Highway westbound. You will encounter scenic points of interest inviting you to stop before reaching Haines Junction - situated right next to Kluane National Park - early in the afternoon. Kluane National Park not only is Canada’s biggest national park, here you will find apart from a variety of wildlife the largest glacier area of the world outside North and South Pole. Even today, most of this huge national park is still unexplored and pristine. Depending on the weather and the group wishes a guided small hike into the national park can take place. Another possible attraction is a flight with a bush plane to the impressive glaciers within the park or a flight with a helicopter over deserted areas (optional). (Overnight accommodation in Haines Junction).
Day 3: Haines Junction - Tok
Today we drive along the scenic shore of the huge Lake Kluane. A first stop is planned at the Sheep Mountain Visitor Center. Chances are you will spot some of the scarce snow-white dall sheep on the surrounding mountains. In Tok you may visit a sled dog demonstration. (Overnight accommodation in Tok).
Day 4: Tok - Valdez
The first part of today‰s stretch will lead us via the Glenn Highway along countless rivers, lakes, glaciers and finally the majestic Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Then we will drive the Richardson Highway southbound to the small seaport of Valdez at the Pacific coast. The crossing of the coastal range via the Thompson Pass is spectacular, with thundering falls right next to the road. Valdez, called little Switzerland by its inhabitants, is enframed by alpine surroundings. The town is also known for the world famous Trans Alaska Pipeline that ends here and the big oil tankers taking a load. (Overnight accommodation in Valdez).
Glacier in Prince Williams Sound Glacier in Prince Williams Sound
Day 5: Valdez - Whittier - Seward
Today we travel the Prince William Sound via ferry. Without a doubt this is a highlight among the scenic beauties of Alaska. The route is close to the pacific coast, passing calving glaciers, the Columbia Glacier probably being the most spectacular of them all. Odds are you will spot a variety of wildlife. With a little luck you will be able to take pictures not only of otters and puffins, but of sea lions and even whales, too. Ashore again, the next stop is the Portage Glacier, which is almost accessible by car. (Overnight accommodation in Seward)
Day 6: Seward - Anchorage
A very nice option to start the day is a tour into Kenai Fjords National Park (optional). We drive along the Turnagain Arm into Anchorage. Watch out for Beluga-Whales in this area! This day in Alaska’s biggest city is at your free disposal for sightseeing in and around Anchorage. There are many interesting things to discover: Lakes Hood and Spenard, the largest marine airport. In summer, up to 800 floatplanes, take off and land here daily. Nearby is the aviation museum where you can admire several legendary aircraft. In downtown Anchorage you will find the Art Museum, the Museum of History and Art and of course the typically American shopping malls. Maybe you would like to visit one of the bars or microbreweries, which offer various kinds of beer brewed in the house. For night people, Anchorage still has one or the other surprise to offer. For example a very special dinner at the restaurant “Gwennies”, they not only offer the biggest and best steaks - gold digger style - you may admire the history of the origins of Anchorage there, too. (Overnight accommodation in Anchorage)
Day 7: Anchorage
Anchorage offers you a variety of options on the last day of your trip. On the largest marine airport, Lake Spenard, up to 800 floatplanes take off and land here daily in summer. Nearby is the aviation museum where you can admire several legendary aircraft. He who simply prefers to relax at the end of this long roundtrip with lots of fresh impressions or would like to do a little shopping before returning home still has plenty of time and opportunity to do so. Transfer to airport or connecting program.
