AUCKLAND – VANCOUVER – CALGARY: The Kiwi Travel Club Canada and Alaska motorhome and cruise adventure tour starts Calgary on 10 May 2024 & 9 May 2025. Transfers and one-night hotel accommodation at Calgary are all included. Motorhome pickup is on day 2.
CALGARY TO ALASKAN HIGHWAY: The Group departs Calgary and travels through several small towns joining the 2,700 km Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek BC (Mile 0)
MUNCHO LAKE: Located on the Alaskan Highway this remote area is a great place for a stopover. Our campground is right on the lakeshore and has full facilities. A group evening meal is planned at the adjacent lodge. This area has abundant wildlife including several bison herds.
WATSON LAKE: For something different make a visit to the Sign-Post Forest. It has over 65,000 signs from all over. View the Aurora Borealis panoramic video at the Northern Lights Centre. Stop for a swim at the hot springs.
DESTRUCTION BAY: Enjoy a group meal at the local hotel that frequently serves freshly caught lake trout.
FAIRBANKS: Included is a three-hour trip on Riverboat Discovery, visit an Indian Village and Sled Dog Centre and watch a float plane take off followed by a miner’s lunch.
DENALI NATIONAL PARK: The park is located 250 miles south of the Arctic Circle and extends to 6 million acres. Travel in the park is restricted, requiring use of the park transportation system. Several shuttle bus and tour options are available.
TOP OF THE WORLD HIGHWAY: Travel this remote highway before boarding the ferry across the river to Dawson City (No bridges in this part of the world)
DAWSON CITY: The group has a two-night stay in this historic city formed out of the Klondike gold rush. It has been preserved right down to unpaved dirt roads and many original buildings. Past groups have really enjoyed a night out at Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall which puts on nightly vaudeville shows including the “Can Can”
SWIFT RIVER – DEASE LAKE -STEWART: The group leaves the Alaskan highway behind and travels down the scenic highway through to Kitwanga BC. To describe this route as scenic is an understatement. In parts it is absolutely stunning with waterfalls, glaciers and lots of wildlife including bears and the now world famous “Jade City”.
JASPER – ICEFIELDS PARKWAY – LAKE LOUISE: Travel the spectacular Icefields Parkway for awe-inspiring scenery. We break our journey for an optional Snow-Cat Excursion on the Athabasca Glacier and yes you do get to take a walk on the glacier. On the way through to Banff we overnight at Lake Louise, without question Lake Louise is one of the most beautiful places in North America.
BANFF NATIONAL PARK: During your trip through to Banff take the opportunity to get off the main highway and travel the very scenic Bow Valley Parkway. At Banff take the local bus into town and travel up the gondola for some great views of the area. Banff is a purpose-built tourist town with lots of shops selling souvenirs and interesting bars and cafes and well worth a visit.
INSIDE PASSAGE CRUISE: After returning the motorhomes at Calgary travel to Vancouver to join the included 7-night cruise. Flight costs are additional.
