Gold Rush Tour

Ruby Range Adventure

Explore the Yukon and Alaska by land and water. This is the complete northern experience.

Overview

The Gold Rush Tour combines one of our favourite wilderness canoe trips with some of our favourite road-based adventures for a complete northern experience. You'll begin with nine days travelling by canoe down the Teslin and Yukon rivers – an ideal trip for first-time paddlers to experience two of Yukon's great, wild rivers. In the village of Carmacks, we'll trade our canoes for a van and head up the highway for another ten days packed with highlights, including hiking in high subarctic mountains, whitewater rafting on a world-class river, panning for gold, and living it up in the preserved gold rush towns of Dawson City and Skagway.

Our route takes a loop through an incredible variety of northern landscapes, from rolling tundra to calving glaciers to coastal Alaskan rainforest. We will be camping most of the time, either along wild stretches of river or scenic organized campsites near the highway.

This is the ultimate northern road trip. Come and join us!
