Going for gold
Anyone in search of gold this summer should look no further than Canada's Yukon, the home of the famous Klondike Gold Rush.
After the discovery of huge deposits of gold in 1896 the rush to prospect for gold along the Klondike River began. Despite the arduous journey and difficult conditions it is thought that over the next three years around 100,000 attempted to make the journey to seek their fortune in the Klondike.
Nowadays the journey to the Klondike is less arduous, but the thrill of discovery is the same. You can still pan for gold on the shores of the river, but now you really visit to discover the beauty of this dramatic location.
You can explore historic Dawson City, at the heart of the Goldfields, experience the stunning views from the mountain passes of the Top of the World Highway, see wildlife such as eagles and bears, visit logging towns like Haines and discover First Nations culture in Carmacks.
Frontier Canada offers bespoke self-drive and escorted coach tours of the Yukon as well as canoe trips along the Yukon River. Visits to the Klondike are included, though discovery of gold is not guaranteed.
