Following the steps of the "stampeders" over the Chilkoot Pass.
We drive with the historic White Pass & Yukon Route railway over the White Pass to Skagway. We follow the Trail, which was crossed by more than 100 000 men und women at the end of the 18th century on their way to Klondike goldfields.
After five days hiking, we reach Lake Bennett, the end point of the Chilkoot Trail. We fly back to Whitehorse with a water plane and have a chance to see this unique landscape from the bird`s-eye view.
Step back in time with us as we travel the historic Chilkoot trail. Follow in the footprints of the intrepid miners as they attempted to cross the "Golden Staircase" on their way towards distant Dawson city.
An important part of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush era, the Chilkoot trail is a great combination of history, scenery and challenge.
All travel to and from Whitehorse is included in the package and you will also enjoy a ride on the narrow gauge White Pass Railway.

Nearby deep blue Kathleen Lake invites for a shore lunch.
Book your seat to this protected place of wilds and wonders, of magic and mystery.
Every time I hike the Chilkoot trail, I think about all the dreamers that fought against this inhospitable country. Few found gold but many found inner strength. All lived real adventures. They opened the path for the rest of us.
