An Introduction to Alaska & the Yukon

Welcome to the Last Frontier! Be the envy of everyone you know and travel to Alaska or the Yukon, two of the final, truly untouched wildernesses in the world. Alaska, the northern-most state of America and the Yukon, its’ neighbouring Canadian province are the most sparsely populated areas of their respective countries and as a result can offer many unique outdoor and wildlife experiences.


Alaska - The Last Frontier

Alaska really does live up to its nickname as the Last Frontier, being the simultaneously the largest and least populated of the states of America. Home to the tallest mountains, the largest area of national parklands, the highest concentration of glaciers and the longest stretch of coastline in the United States, it really is a special place, and one that you can visit!

Alaska is teeming with exhilarating and unique outdoor experiences. From hiking an ice glacier, canoeing, rafting and kayaking down one of Alaska’s many rivers, lakes and protected coastal waters and taking a dog sled ride through the wilderness, there is something here for everyone.

Don’t forget the incredible wildlife experiences on offer here too; from great herds of caribou roaming the tundra, to the salmon spawning up rivers and the magnificent grizzly bears who feed on them every year. Also consider a flightseeing trip for a bird’s-eye view of the wildlife beyond the road.

The Yukon - Land of the Midnight Sun

Close to 80% of the Yukon remains pristine wilderness with 5,000 metre peaks, forested valleys, unspoiled waters and untamed wildlife. Parklands the size of small countries stretch from Canada’s highest mountain, Mount Logan, in southwest Yukon to its northern extreme at the Arctic Ocean.

The Yukon truly is the Land of the Midnight Sun; in summer, the light just won’t quit, giving you plenty of time to hike, canoe, bike or kayak your way around the province. As the days shorten, snow blankets the landscape and offers a whole new form of adventure, including endless cross-country ski trails and dogsled rides. The Yukon is also the perfect place to see the majestic Aurora Borealis; with the famous natural lights visible from April to August.
