Live and breathe wild on this 7-day 8-night journey through Canada’s Yukon territory. This sparsely populated northern territory is home to roughly 43,000 residents during the height of peak season, who share the land with ample wildlife. In fact, there are 10 times more caribou, moose, wolves, bears, sheep and goats than people in the Yukon.
The magic of the Yukon lies in its adventure opportunities, set against jaw dropping canyons and soaring mountain peaks. This itinerary provides travelers with unfettered and exclusive access to the Yukon’s most pristine parks, ancient glaciers, and historical sites. Guests will have the chance to see a Yukon ordinarily reserved only for wildlife, thanks to a fleet of ski planes, floatplanes, helicopters, and private driver/guides who will deliver you to the hardest-to-reach (and most magnificent) places in the Yukon territory. Marvel at the otherworldly Tombstone Territorial Park on a private helicopter hike, kayak in the shadow of Mt. Logan (Canada’s tallest peak), and trek across an ancient icefield, absorbing the silence and magnitude of Kluane National Park.
Dig deep on learning about the gold rush as you visit mining sites, and experience abandoned towns frozen in time. Discover how Dawson City quickly became a boomtown and earned the nickname “The Paris of the North”. Visit the spot of the first gold strike, and connect with a local gold miner to find out how gold is mined.
Throughout your journey, you’ll connect with locals who share their hearts, stories, and homes. You’ll learn about the Tutchone people at Long Ago Peoples Place, discover the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, learn about the Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin First Nation and break bread over lunch with Chief James Allen of the Champagne Aishihik Nation.
We love the Yukon because it’s wild. It’s the kind of wild that transforms you, and stays with you long after your trip is over. You’ll be recalling the long days filled with light, dramatic landscapes and northern hospitality for years to come.
Stay tuned for January 2022 when you can experience the magic of the Yukon for yourself!
