Walking vacation in the Yukon and Alaska

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travelers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travelers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of waste responsibly and recycling when possible.

We are proud supporters of the American Hiking Society, which champions conservation issues in the United States and represents millions of hikers committed to preserving America’s vast network of hiking trails and their surrounding ecosystems.

All water is safe to drink from the tap on this trip and we advise customers to bring a reusable water bottle from home, and not buy single use plastic bottles.

As this is a walking tour, vehicles are used only when traveling between point A and B. Most of the time, all exploring will be done on foot.

Community

Almost all meals are included and food will be purchased locally for supermarkets, smaller shops and eateries to ensure that economic wealth is spread throughout areas travelled. This helps boost local economy.

This tour visits some of the less touristic areas of Canada and Alaska, areas most tour groups and cruise ships will not venture. It is important to support these areas which make most of their money during the short Summer tourist season. We use two local tour guides on this tour which helps create demand and a necessity for this line of work outside of the larger and more well-known cities.
