Foreign Travel Advice

Our journey through Alaska is all about the great outdoors and adventure activities. Whether we are exploring Seward, Denali or Kenai national Parks, we allow time for hiking, boat trips, quad biking or horse riding through some of the continents most spectacular landscapes; glaciers, snow capped mountains and stunning lakes make this part of the journey very special.

Then there is Canada's Yukon & Klondyke area, famed for its gold rush and its hub Dawson City; the area is still active in gold mining and we will visit one of the great Gold mining rigs. Throughout this region we will be camping in stunning locations, on the banks of lakes, rivers or under mountains.

This trip is also about the wildlife and there will be opportunities for bear spotting and witnessing the amazing salmon runs of the great British Colombian Rivers. As we cross through the Canadian Rockies, we will be time to go hiking, biking or rafting and also to visit some of the Native American communities.

Both crew were excellent and helped make the trip enjoyable, and were very sociable and hard working.

Molly L

Lou was a perfect introduction to my experience with Dragoman crew. She knew how to handle all the different passengers on Betsy, especially particularly difficult passengers that didn’t make a tour leader’s life very easy. She’d always maintain a professional manner. All the while, she was more of a friend than a tour leader, and seemed to have fun along with the passengers, which was preferred rather than a “No, I’m working” attitude.

John W

The leaders were very helpful and pleasant. I was very happy with their leadership.

Deborah P

Both Lou and Seb worked very hard throughout this leg and the following on what was an extremely fast paced journey with a very diverse set of passengers. I would have no hesitation in going on further trips with either of them as leader or driver.

Natalie B

The National Parks were stunning and the campsites were great. Amazing to have Denali Park included in the kitty

Jennifer N

George S

Overall a fantastic trip. Stunning scenery, a wide variety of optional activities to chose from

Claire T

It was all pretty awesome, but particularly enjoyed Denali National Park

Hilary Q

I loved it - it's a relaxed but essentially very organised means of travelling to places that are not really possible as a solo traveller.

Jeroen V
