I agree with Cathy regarding this particular trip. It had been subcontracted to Ruby Range Adventures and while our leaders were good people, two of our "guides" had less than 1 year in the Yukon and Alaska and no experience on the few trails we hiked and no knowledge of the flora, fauna and geography. Our experienced guide was disabled by a knee injury and could not serve as a guide on the trails but drove our bus which had poor forward visibility and was uncomfortable considering the long hours and many miles we spent traveling from village to village (or town). A disappointment considering our two excellent previous trips with Road Scholar.

Overall I learned a lot of history about the Yukon Gold Rush and saw some amazing scenery. But the trip involves long days....up early and in late....with very long drives between places. The drive to Denali....likely what is attracting you.....was two days over very difficult roads in a cramped vehicle. Then Denali was rainy with the time spent in a park district bus for 6 hours touring the park. The Denali part of the trip could be cut out. The interesting areas are the Yukon, Skagway/Chilcott Trail, Dawson City and surroundings, as well as Seward.

The Alaska and Yukon Landscapes:Discovery Hikes and Adventures was one of the best programs that I have ever participated in. We were on the go for many hours every day but we learned a lot, many amazing adventures and a fantastic guide. I highly recommend it.
