“The call of the wild” – already the adventurer Jack London knew how to describe in a captivating way that the “call”, the magical attraction of untouched nature, can nowhere be felt as intensely as in Canada’s Yukon and in Alaska.
A maximum of nine participants start this trip from Whitehorse to Anchorage in a maxi van. Under expert local guidance, you will travel back through the time of the Gold Rush, into the wilderness, and incredible landscapes.
Various gravel roads have to be used on this route through the northern back country. You can only reach the Ruby Range Lodge, situated on the shore of the Talbot Arm, a fjord-like branch of the huge Kluane Lake, by motorboat. Enjoy your own log cabin and campfire while taking in views of the lake – a unique Yukon experience!
You will have plenty of time to do wildlife watching and hiking. You will also get the opportunity to take a flight over the Polar Circle Tundra or to drive on the Dempster Highway. Denali National Park is a further highlight.
Drives over quiet, unpaved wilderness roads often make the progress slower – but even more adventurous! In Inuvik, there is the possibility of an excursion to Tuktoyaktuk to explore the small Inuit village on the Polar Sea coast (optional). By plane, then on to Dawson City where Gold panning, casino and cancan dance are waiting for you. The Top-of-the-World Highway leads us across mountains to Alaska, where you will visit Mount Denali and finally Anchorage.
