Experience the historic Chilkoot Trail and the abandoned cities high in the pass; venture into Kluane National Park for a remote and challenging trek; or, see the impossibly jagged Tombstone Mountains just north of Dawson City. Walk through history as you follow in the paths of the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders, our First Nation people, and the caribou, moose, grizzlies and Dall sheep that call this home.

After an awestruck day of hiking along the Coast Mountains, be sure to perch yourself on a rock outcrop amidst the wildflowers as you try to outwait the midnight sun. Despite the natural stimulus and endless photography-enhancing light, a full belly of your guide’s culinary magic and mountain fresh air will have you in your sleeping bag dreaming of things to come.
