The Yukon River conjures the visions of stern-wheelers and gold miners who took part in the 19th-century gold rush to the Klondike. This river is rich with history, which is representative of the story of Alaska and the Yukon Territory. Learn about the men and women that searched for gold in the land of the midnight sun and meet the present day gold hunters and homesteaders.
While on the river you will visit areas of the early day gold rush, visit gold dredges, learn about the subsistence life style, and visit a homestead family at their home.
This river, though not difficult technically, is very remote and a good distance from major cities or towns. This Trek is six days and 156 miles.
