Day 1 Vancouver    
Fly into this vibrant city to enjoy the inspiring cuisine and activities galore.    

Day 2 Vancouver to Whitehorse
Just a 2½ hour flight and you’re in Whitehorse City in Canada’s north! The Wilderness City is home to the SS Klondike paddle wheeler and offers a true far-north welcome.    
   
Day 3 Whitehorse    
After a leisurely morning, this afternoon you will be picked up from your hotel to visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. Home to bison, caribou, elk, bighorn sheep and mountain goats, it’s an excellent opportunity to view some otherwise elusive native animals. From there, travel to the nearby Takhini Hot Springs for a relaxing soak in the naturally warm waters before being transferred back to your hotel in the early evening.

Day 4 White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad
An exciting full day awaits. After pick-up in downtown Whitehorse, travel along the South Klondike Highway to Fraser, BC. Here, you’ll board the world-famous narrow gauge White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad, travelling through spectacular scenery over the White Pass Summit and into Skagway, Alaska. Upon arrival in Skagway, explore the historic downtown, the gateway for many prospectors on their way to the gold fields. Travel back to Whitehorse by coach with guided commentary along the way.

Day 5 Whitehorse to Dawson City    
This morning, fly to the Gold Rush townof Dawson City that still retains its frontier legacy. This afternoon visit Goldbottom Mine to see how today’s gold prospecting techniques have changed since its origins in the area in the 1800s.

Day 6 Tombstone Territorial Park  
Today, head out of the city along the Dempster Highway as you enter Tombstone Territorial Park, boasting over 2100sq kilometres of superbly epic scenery. Keep your eyes peeled for bears and caribou and take advantage of the excellent hiking trails on a guided one hour flat-terrain hike along part of the Klondike River. Visit the Interpretation Centre and enjoy a hearty lunch before heading back to Dawson City mid-afternoon.

Day 7 Dawson City to Whitehorse
Enjoy one final morning in Dawson City before an early afternoon flight back to Whitehorse.
