Notes:
While wildlife in Alaska is often seen, early season (May-early June) and late-season (September) departures offer even greater chances to view wildlife. The US Embassy requires travelers to and from Canada to have a valid US Passport. This tour travels to the Yukon Territory, which is part of Canada. Non-US citizens may need a visa. Alaska and the Yukon are blessed with exquisite scenery, fascinating attractions, and an extraordinary amount of daylight in the summer months. We take advantage of these extended daylight hours in this vast territory; therefore, some of the traveling days can be long. However, rest assured there are frequent photo and comfort stops. Visiting and participating in activities in these locations is subject to favorable weather conditions.Enjoy the spectacular colors of Alaska & the Yukon on our special fall foliage departures: August 8-29 (if Mother Nature permits).
The following UNESCO World Heritage Sites can be seen or visited on this vacation:
- Kluane National Park
