“It is impossible to give one an idea of the slowness with which things are moving. It takes a day to go four or five miles and back: It takes a dollar to do what ten cents would do at home.” Tappan Adey/Aug 1897. Such were some of the conditions on the Chilkoot trail that the Klondike gold rushers were prepared to accept for the promise of gold near Dawson City. You will follow in their footsteps, over an unchanged landscape of rainforest, alpine, and boreal forest. It kindles a sense of kinship and appreciation of their epic accomplishment.

GUEST TESTIMONIAL
Well, what can I say – I wanted to write and say thank you and how brilliant everything was, but words are now failing me! What an amazing time – from the Chilkoot Trail and the wonderful views at the top of the pass to the long walk down over the snow, the brilliant timing of the readings and poetry and did I mention how wonderful the food was? Well, it was! ~ Mary Graham, UK
