Tailor-Made Holiday

A Self-Drive Holiday Yukon

Breath-taking mountain scenery, gold panning & a drive through Alaska crossing the Arctic Circle.

16 days

from £2,995pp

A self-drive through the Yukon Territory in northern Canada is one of the best ways to experience this pristine wilderness.

  • Experience one of the most remote regions of Yukon and unique driving routes
  • Visit Inuvik ‘The Place of Man” the largest Canadian community north of the Arctic circle
  • Travel through frontier mining towns and try your luck at gold panning
  • View breath-taking mountain ranges and travel over subarctic tundra
  • Cross into Alaska visiting Haines and ferry to Skagway

This two week self-drive holiday begins in Whitehorse travelling along the Silver Trail to discovering the old silver towns such as Mayo.  Then travel north to Dawson City before taking the Dempster Highway east to the far reaches of the Yukon Territory.  The Dempster Highway is Canada’s only all season public road that crosses the Arctic Circle and is among one of the world’s most spectacular drives.  

Returning to Dawson City, drive west tracking the Yukon River into Alaska. Visit Kluane National Park before continuing south to Haines and taking a ferry to Skagway; the largest city in Alaska and best preserved living tribute to the Gold Rush era of the 19th Century.  Your self-drive concludes in Whitehorse passing through a small community in the Carcross desert – the smallest desert in the world.

"Roxy filled us with enthusiasm and came up with some great ideas for a trip. We liked the idea of a slightly 'off the beaten track experience' and some private bespoke activities and that's exactly what we've had. Thank you!"

"Roxy created a wonderfully interesting route which was the basis for a super trip. She also chose lovely places for us to stay and interesting activities for us to participate in, introducing us to the idea of private guided experiences which we thoroughly enjoyed."
