Immerse yourself in Dawson’s history, and try your luck panning the creeks yourself.. Here you can go back in time, visit the Jack London cabin or go to the Dawson City museum. You’ll also want to take some time to simply stroll around the town, with its garish Gold Rush architecture and friendly locals.

In the late afternoon, you'll arrive in Whitehorse. There, you'll have the opportunity to visit Miles Canyon.

This small town is located right next to Kluane National Park, which contains a significant portion of the largest non-polar ice fields on earth and is home to a variety of wildlife. Depending on the weather and the group’s interest, the group may take a short, guided hike into the national park, or charter a bush plane over the spectacular glaciers that lay beyond the front ranges.

Once ashore, continue overland through the scenic Chugach mountain range, the glacier lakes and rivers to the coastal town of Seward.

Back in Alaska's biggest city, you can enjoy a nice dinner together in the evening.You also can check out Lakes Hood and Spenard, where up to 800 floatplanes take off and land daily.
