DAY 4. SKAGWAY. Pick up your motorhome at the Skagway RV Depot and receive a through orientation. You’ll still have plenty of Alaskan daylight left to stroll down Broadway and try out Skagway’s shops and saloons. We’re handy if you have last-minute questions about your motorhome.
DAY 5. SKAGWAY-WHITEHORSE. Today you can seek out adventures in Skagway, including the optional Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp & Salmon Bake or the Yukon Sightseeing Adventure by Hummer®, or just sleep late before beginning your motorhome tour with a drive up the scenic Klondike Highway to Whitehorse. You’ll have an overview of the arduous White Pass Trail, used by stampeders of the Klondike Gold Rush. In Whitehorse you overnight at your reserved campsite.
DAY 6. WHITEHORSE-BEAVER CREEK. Drive along blue, glacier-fed Kluane Lake, with the snowy peaks of the Kluane Ranges to the west. Take time for fishing, gold panning, hiking. Then arrive at Beaver Creek on the Yukon-Alaska border via the Alaska Highway.
DAY 7. BEAVER CREEK-FAIRBANKS. Watch for the TransAlaska Pipeline as you continue on the Alaska Highway to Fairbanks. Summertime daylight lasts far into the night; in late summer you might see the Aurora Borealis.
DAY 8. FAIRBANKS-DENALI. While in Fairbanks, consider an optional riverboat cruise on the Discovery, a genuine sternwheeler, try gold panning at Gold Dredge #8, or visit the excellent museum at the University of Alaska. Then it’s a short drive south to Denali area campground, where you’ll spend two nights.
DAY 9. DENALI NATIONAL PARK. Now for Denali National Park, home of North America’s tallest mountain: 20,320-ft. Denali. Consider an optional tour. Perhaps a flightseeing tour with a local naturalist to help you spot Dall sheep, moose and caribou in the peaks and valleys below.
