Today’s drive to the small town of Tok is filled with incredible landscapes. We make our way along Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the largest in all of the United States. Overnight in Tok, an old stopover for travellers coming from or heading to Canada.

Day 4: Tok - Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada

A picturesque day awaits as we travel to Whitehorse, the capital of Canada’s Yukon. The city was named after the local river rapids’ resemblance to the mane of a white horse. For part of the day we’ll be riding amid Kluane National Park, the “crown jewel” of the Canadian national parks system.

Gol;d! Travel back to a time when dreams of a big payday were on everyone’s mind. Ride to Skagway, the gateway to the Klondike. Revel in tales of the gold rush and local characters like Soapy Smith.

Today’s final destination is Dawson City. En route, we’ll 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.
