Alaska and the Yukon are the last frontiers of North America. This is a land too wild to be tamed, with rugged peaks and raging rivers; a land of grand vistas and hardy people. Its history is relatively short, having only been really explored during the gold rushes at the end of the nineteenth century. In recent years a new ‘gold’ rush has taken place, in search of oil, but the land remains wild and inviting. Come with us as we too discover this new land. We will spend eight days touring the north, both Canadian and American. Visiting such well known locations as Anchorage, Denali National Park, Fairbanks, and the Gold Rush city of Dawson. Then enjoy four nights of pampered luxury as we cruise on the ms Volendam to Glacier Bay and south along the Inside Passage to Vancouver. 

Rates include meal plan and gratuities - a value of over $1000 per person!
