The perfect way to explore the Yukon!
Gold prospectors didn't have Hummers but do you think if you gave a caveman a flame thrower he would have kept rubbing sticks together? Probably not, so hop behind the wheel of this four wheel drive vehicle and head out on an adventure into the Yukon territory by taking one of the most famous routes blazed by prospectors in the late 1800s.
Radio communication with the lead vehicle connects you with your friendly guide who will tell interactive tales of the gold rush era. We're taking the scenic route, following the Klondike Highway there will be numerous photo stops along the way. You will see Pitchfork Falls, Moore Bridge, Dead Horse Gulch, Bracket Wagon Trail and Tormented Valley on your way to the historic village of Carcross which was named after the crossing point at the headwaters of the Yukon River. Venture past Carcross to the Carcross Desert, the smallest desert in the world, before making a stop at the true highlight of this adventure, Emerald Lake, known for its vivid turquoise water. Several points along the route will allow drivers to rotate.
Get out of your cabin and into the Yukon on this adventurous program. If the prospectors never left their homes they would have never found all that gold. Don't forget that.
