Yukon and Alaska by camper

Dempster Highway through the Richardson Mountains in the fall

22 day camper trip | August 2017

This trip to Canada’s North was designed with grandiose scenery and meaningful contact with local people in mind. It includes colourful settlements, a guided hike in Kluane National Park, a fishing adventure from Sitka, a glacier hike in Juneau and a spectacular train ride from Skagway, Alaska.

The trip extends to the amazing subarctic landscapes of the Dempster and Top-of-the-World highways – roads far less traveled and truly memorable.
