Yukon and Alaska by camper

22 day camper trip | August 2020

This trip into Canada’s Yukon and neighbouring Alaska balances grandiose scenery and meaningful contact with northerners.
You will reach the amazing subarctic landscapes of the Dempster and Top-of-the-World highways – roads less traveled and truly memorable. Wildlife sightings are a given along the entire route. Add colourful settlements, a guided hike in Kluane National Park, a fishing adventure off Sitka, a glacier hike in Juneau, spectacular ferry rides and a no less spectacular train ride. Did we mention a sea kayaking day out of Sitka, Alaska?
