Alaska & the Yukon with Alaska Cruise

Vacation Overview
This Alaska and the Yukon Territory tour features many of the most popular scenic vistas that Alaska and the Yukon Territory have to offer—beginning and ending in Anchorage. Along the way, take a boat to view breathtaking Mears Glacier on Prince William Sound and watch for eagles, whales, dolphins, mountain goats, and more. Between Valdez and Tok, enjoy views of Bridal Veil Falls, Worthington Glacier, and Thompson Pass. Between Tok and Whitehorse, behold spectacular vistas of Kluane National Park 's rugged mountains. Between Dawson City and Fairbanks, delight in the stunning scenery as you motor over the Top of the World Highway.

More magnificent scenery awaits you on your journey aboard the Alaska Railroad between Fairbanks and Denali National Park. Travel through untamed wilderness and delight in viewing the awe-inspiring scenery via wide windows and the domed-roof car. With its six million acres, Denali National Park & Preserve is home to North America 's highest peak and offers majestic landscapes. Your two nights in Denali give you the opportunity to explore on your own or to take optional outings, such as a helicopter ride over the park or a wilderness tour to seek out grizzly bears, moose, and more.

In addition to witnessing breathtaking scenery, this Alaska and Yukon Territory tour offers you a chance to learn about the Klondike Gold Rush. Follow the Trail of '98 over the same mountains that determined gold seekers traveled in the middle of winter. Visit Skagway, where thousands of hopeful miners came in 1898, and stroll the wooden sidewalks. In Dawson City, see where the first gold strike was made and enjoy the ragtime music, can-can girls, and old-fashioned casino just as the prospectors did over a century ago.

But that 's not all… your Alaska vacation includes a 7-night Alaska cruise. Explore the remote and rugged beauty of areas such as Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau, Ketchikan, and the amazing Inside Passage. With magnificent scenery, opportunities to witness wildlife in the natural environment, and awe-inspiring experiences, this Alaska tour is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!

ANCHORAGE-WHITTIER-VALDEZ. As you enter Whittier from North America 's longest tunnel, the panoramic view of the ocean, mountains, and glaciers greet you. As the gateway to Prince William Sound, this is where you 'll board a GLACIER CRUISE for an up-close look along the 3-mile face of Mears Glacier, and the epicenter of the Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964. Watch for eagles, whales, mountain goats, dolphins, and sea lions! Overnight in Valdez, the “Switzerland of Alaska.” (CB)

Overnight in Tok, the “Dog Sled Capital of the World.”

The next two nights are in Whitehorse, capital of the Yukon and the territorial headquarters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Day 5:
WHITEHORSE. EXCURSION TO SKAGWAY. Follow the Trail of '98 over the same mountains that thousands of determined gold seekers scaled on foot in the dead of winter while heading for the Klondike. From Fraser, your Tour Director will suggest an optional train trip on the narrow-gauge White Pass & Yukon Railway to Skagway. Otherwise, continue by motorcoach to Skagway. Stroll the wooden sidewalks past charming false-front buildings and colorful saloons.

A stop at the Five Finger Rapids, a major obstacle to the hordes of fortune seekers that passed this way.

Tonight, enjoy the high-flying entertainment of DIAMOND TOOTH GERTIE 'S SALOON, featuring ragtime music, can-can girls, and an old-fashioned casino.

The rest of your day is free to soak up the exciting history of this Gold Rush town at your own pace. Perhaps a return to Diamond Tooth Gertie 's Saloon is in order?

Day 8:
DAWSON CITY-FAIRBANKS. A full day and well worth it, as the scenery is magnificent. Have your camera ready for photo opportunities at Dawson overlook and Top of the World Highway, where the motorcoach will re-enter Alaska.

Board the STERNWHEELER RIVERBOAT Discovery III for a leisurely cruise on the Chena River.

Be immersed into the ancient Athabascan Indian culture when our Alaskan Native Guides take you on a personalized tour of the CHENA INDIAN VILLAGE.

Day 10:
FAIRBANKS-ALASKA RAILROAD-DENALI NATIONAL PARK. Board the world-famous ALASKA RAILROAD for a memorable journey through untamed wilderness.
