The first stop on our way to the Arctic is Dawson City, the hearth of the Klondike Gold Rush. Try your hand at gold panning and experience Yukon's gold rush era at Diamond Tooth Gertie’s.
Then we’re off on the road less traveled!
Yukon’s Dempster Highway is the only road in Canada that crosses the Arctic Circle. Experience the awesome beauty of a northern mountain wilderness; this land remains largely untraveled.There is lots of wildlife to be seen on your trip on the Dempster Highway. Bear, moose, caribou, fox and many others will cross our path. We’ll cross the Arctic Circle and drive through the notorious Hurricane Alley as we head to Inuvik. And then still we head north - on an excursion to Tuktoyaktuk, an Inuit settlement on the shores of the Arctic Ocean.
Our August 23 departure (NDH 04/2013) is an excellent opportunity to see Mother Nature's spectaculair fare-well to Summer! Witness two of the most spectaculair natural phenomena at the same time: the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), often seen over Dawson City and Eagle Plains and the fiery colors of the tundra along the Dempster Highway.
From Yukon's Gold Rush history in Dawson City, Northern Lights, spectaculair fall colors and pristine mountain ranges to vast arctic tundra; The Arctic Explorer has it all! It’s the best Nature Tours of Yukon has to offer. Come explore the Arctic in autumn with us.
