The Road to Tuktoyaktuk '23

Jun 16-27, 2023

12 days | Canada | alumni UBC Travel Club

This iconic Canadian road trip has it all: remote locations, Gold Rush history, the Arctic Ocean, First Nations culture, wildlife, and geology.

This tour showcases this magnificent wilderness region during the long days of the northern midsummer, when wildflowers begin to carpet the alpine slopes, glacier-fed turquoise lakes gleam in deep valleys and snow-covered peaks of imposing mountains loom on the horizon. As we explore, we access many of the Yukon First Nations who have been on this land for more than 12,000 years.

Starting in Whitehorse we’ll explore Canada’s smallest “desert” at Carcross, view fantastic canyon formations and become acquainted with the region’s Gold Rush history. We’ll visit Kluane National Park with the highest mountain in Canada and the most extensive non-polar ice fields in the world. As we explore the wilderness fringes of northern highways, with fabled names such as Dempster, Klondike and Alaska, we’ll be on the lookout for Black and Grizzly Bears as they graze on greens and Moose and Elk browsing in the dense willow thickets. As we move north from Dawson on the Dempster Highway we’ll enter the tundra and carry on to the mighty Mackenzie River Delta, pock-marked by lakes and dotted with clumps of spruce. The unique arctic ice-cored hills called pingos greet us as we approach the Arctic Ocean and the Inuvialuit hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk.

Join us as we travel Canada’s northernmost road!
