Description

This journey along the route blazed by Klondike Gold Rush stampeders will take you back in time as you travel up the highway that parallels the Gold Rush Trail of 1898. Waterfalls and towering mountains will pass through your eye line at every turn, serving as the perfect back drop for observing the historic WP&YR railroad, Brackett Wagon Road and Moore Creek Bridge. Miniature sub-alpine forest surrounds you on your arrival to the famous 3,292 foot White Pass Summit and the Welcome to Alaska sign. The incredible views coupled with the area’s history sets up the ideal scenario for great Alaskan tales.

Once in Canada enjoy crystal blue Summit Lake, Divided Lake and rugged Tormented Valley. Beyond Canadian customs at Fraser you will continue into the captivating Northern Boreal Forest. The minimal roads, cities and industrial development will provide the perfect photo opportunities in one of the most untouched regions in North America. Vast Tutshi and Tagish lakes will impress you. The Yukon provides the best potential wildlife viewing from Skagway so always be on watch for bears, moose, sheep, goats and more! Our turnaround stop is the Welcome to Yukon sign for a great photo stop! This type of access to serene wilderness is a rare opportunity that shouldn't go missed.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
