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

For peace of mind, your deposit for this journey is fully refundable until May 3, 2023.  Learn more...
