Alaska & Yukon, Land & Sea Tour, 7/16-28/18
The Alaska & Yukon, Land and Sea Tour was organized and operated by Holland America Cruise Lines. Our tour started in Anchorage on 7/16/18. From there, we took the McKinley Dome Explorer Train to Denali where we stayed for 2 nights and had time to go into the Denali National Park and Wilderness Preserve. There we proceeded with our land tour to Fairbanks, and into the Yukon Territory through Dawson, and Whitehorse to learn about the respective gold rushes in both Alaska and the Yukon. The land tour continued across White Pass via the White Pass & Yukon Railway into Skagway on 7/23. On 7/24, we embarked on the Holland America Ship, Nieuw Amsterdam to begin the Sea portion of our tour. We toured Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and continued on through the Inside Passage to arrive at Vancouver on 7/28 for the conclusion of our tour.
