Overview

Book
The Canadian wilderness is the ultimate destination if you are looking for a landscape of stunning stark beauty and a remote adventure. This group trekking holiday on the Chilkoot trail from Alaska, USA over the border into Yukon, Canada, combined with a week canoeing on the Yukon River, encompasses the essence of Canadian wilderness experience, and is truly amazing. of At the height of the gold rush in the Klondike in 1898 nearly 30,000 gold prospectors and 7,000 boats travelled down the Yukon River, which flows through into Alaska and out into the Pacific. Now it is a peaceful haven of remote wilderness and wildlife. We canoe the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Carmacks over the space of 6 days. We wild camp at night and learn some fly fishing skills to catch our supper. However, our experience of the gold rush would not be complete without also hiking along the famous Chilkoot Trail. We do this walking section by first transferring over the border to Skagway, USA. From here we have a challenging backpacking hike for 5 days over the Chilkoot pass, including the famously photographed ‘Golden Staircase'. We trek through coastal rainforest, over high mountain passes and boreal forest, and there are pretty streams flowing from the higher glaciers. The Chilkoot Trail is a 33 mile / 53 km hike over the pass at 1067m, and you do not need to worry about camp reservations or permits as we do all that for you. If you want an adventure you have found it here. This North American wilderness is vast and a hidden gem; outstanding natural beauty combined with substantive history.
