Escorted by Nette Bacaling a Cruise Specialist who worked with Holland America for several years.
You’ll venture deep into the Yukon and back in time to 1898 when gold was discovered in a tributary of the Klondike River. Follow in the footsteps of the “Sourdoughs” to seldom-visited Whitehorse, rugged capital of the Yukon Territory. Walk the boardwalk of rough-and-tumble Dawson City, with its false-front buildings, unpaved streets and Klondike Gold Rush heritage. Ride the narrow-gauge White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, a civil engineering landmark, through breathtakingly beautiful terrain to the White Pass summit.
Your explorations continue in Denali National Park and Preserve, one of Earth’s most magnificent places. At six million pristine acres, the Park is home to moose, caribou, wolves, Dall sheep, grizzly bears and North America’s highest peak, Mt. Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley), towering over the Park at more than 20,000 feet high.
