Staying at simple yet comfortable accommodation you'll journey from Anchorage on Alaska's southern coast to the Denali National Park and Mount McKinley - the highest peak in North America. From there you'll travel through the heart of Alaska, stopping at a number of rural communities and sampling some of North America's most breathtaking wilderness before arriving in the Canadian territory of Yukon where you'll encounter spectacular glacial landscapes, incredible wildlife and historic gold-rush towns.
