Gold Rush Trail Expedition
and now….. INTO THE WILD!
A journey to discover the natural beauties of Alaska and the places that made up the milestones of the gold rush in the Yukon. This trip will give you the opportunity to discover the most authentic and representative aspects of the destination.
Seventeen days dedicated on exploring the LAST FRONTIER, along particularly scenic roads, living some nights in the heart of “wilderness” hoping for a close encounter with the Grizzly bear and admiring the expanses on the glaciers, these are just some of the exciting activities included in this trip that will make it particularly original.
A journey dedicated to those who want to live a 360° experience in a wild land and in some aspects not so easy to reach. An expedition that requires a strong spirit of adaptation and practical sense according to the situations that will arise, this will be crucial to the success of the expedition.
This expedition to Alaska and Canada, where nature is still intact, is a real dive into the “wild”, which combines sailing in the Inside Passage with the breathtaking views of Denali National Park.
In Alaska civilisation has not contaminated yet the primitive nature of this region, from the southern coast to the immediate hinterland.
The view of glaciers that covers entire regions, tundra, forests, deep fjords, peaks and volcanoes, crystal clear lakes, mountain streams and rivers and of course animals such as elk, bears, eagles, wolves and large salmon, will astonish anyone’s expectations.
Almost four times the size of Italy, in most of the Alaskan territory, nature still reigns undisturbed; its population is around six hundred thousand inhabitants, and almost half live in Anchorage while approximately ninety thousand are indigenous. Juneau, capital of the region, has no road links and is surrounded by sea and frozen mountains which creates a spectacular environment. The entire day will be dedicated to the sea and the Mendenhall glacier, and either in the boat or sailing in kayaks, you will able to see whales, killer whales and dolphins.
