Today’s final destination is Dawson City. En route, stop in the village of Carmacks to see the famous Five Finger Rapids mentioned in Jack London’s novel The Call of The Wild. Carmacks is named after George Carmack, the man who struck gold in 1896, sparking the frenzy that turned Dawson City into the centre of the Klondike Gold Rush. Within a few years, the population grew from nearly zero to 40,000. After the gold rush, the population plummeted…leaving behind a ghost town. (B)

Day 7: Dawson City

Today it’s your choice!

This afternoon, enjoy some leisure time to independently explore this rustic gold rush town. (B)

Day 8: Dawson City - Chicken - Fairbanks

An exciting day awaits as you ride along the Top of the World Highway. Discover why it rivals all other scenic roads. Stop in Chicken, one of the last surviving gold rush towns of Alaska.
