ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
At magnificent national parks and landmarks of Gold Rush history, experts regale our intimate small group with stories, history and culture. Experience unforgettable wildlife viewing — grizzlies, caribou, moose, bald eagles and more — as you adventure 60 miles into Denali National Park. Ferry in fjords, explore Native villages and add a little urban flair with excursions in Whitehorse, Anchorage and Fairbanks.


• Pan for gold as you learn about the impact on the region of the Klondike Gold Rush.
• Marvel at views of Denali and Kluane National Park.
• Hear from Natives about the rhythms of life in the Yukon and drive the “Top of the World Highway.”
