  • Days 1 Arrival day in Anchorage

    Starting in Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska with only 300,000 people and a city which has undergone quite a change since the earthquake of 1964. Now a bustling city fuelled by the oil boom and tourism, it wasn't that long ago that Anchorage was the last outpost before heading into the 'Last Frontier'. It's also common place to find bear roaming the outskirts of the city. Spend your day wandering around the town to get a feel for the 49th state, speaking to the locals and breathing in that fresh Alaskan air! A welcome meeting will be held at 18:00 hrs for you to meet your tour leader and fellow travelling companions. Accommodation: Hotel included | Meals: Paid locally

A wide range of optional activities are available such as river rafting, scenic flights and dog sledding demonstrations. Hiking for all fitness and adventure levels is in abundance within the park, so you're never far away from a new adventure.

  • Days 5 Full day flight to the gates of the Arctic Circle - Anaktuvuk Pass Village and Fairbanks

    Anaktuvuk Pass is a remote village located within the park and preserve boundaries. It was established along a major caribou migration route in the early 1950s by the last remaining band of semi-nomadic Nunamiut Eskimo. Even today, the residents continue to depend on caribou and other natural resources for food and clothing. Today you'll take an unbelievable flight to this remote Arctic village for a once in a lifetime journey. You'll land on the town airstrip and from there you'll be guided to various points of interest by a local guide. Enjoy hearing the story of the Nunamiut, from their early nomadic days to their current life in Anaktuvuk Pass. Today, Anaktuvuk Pass is a village of 250 people with regular air service, a village store and a popular museum that highlights Nunamiut history and culture. From the air you'll be able to see the remarkable Trans Alaska Pipeline from the air and fly over the expansive Yukon River Valley, home of the traditional people that sustain their lifestyle and culture as they have for thousands of years. Return to Fairbanks in the late afternoon. Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Paid locally

  • Days 6-7 Chicken and Dawson City

    Pass through the unusually named gold mining town of Chicken en route to Dawson City. Dawson City was founded in 1897 and named after a Canadian geologist, George Dawson. The wooden shop fronts lining the downtown area give it a real frontier feel. The town looks like it's come straight out of a movie set from the 1800's and featured in the writings of Jack London, famous for his novel, 'The Call of the Wild'. You can't visit Dawson City without a visit to an iconic Diamond Tooth Gerties, one of Canada's oldest and friendliest gambling halls. Try your luck at blackjack, roulette or one of the many slot machines whilst enjoying a song and dance from one of the dancing Gold Rush Gals - an experience like no other. You'll also have another chance to sample the legendary Sour-Toe cocktail or try your hand at gold panning. Enjoy a hike up to Midnight Dome for a look out over the city. People have been visiting this place for years to watch the midnight sun and the changing colours of the night sky. Accommodation: Hotel included | Meals: Breakfast (x1), lunch (x1) included
