From Canada to Alaska.

From Whitehorse and across the Alaska Highway through Kluane National Park, then via the Top of the World Highway to Dawson, and through Denali National Park to Anchorage. The German roamers have one goal: to capture the soul of Canada and Alaska on camera. Hannes Becker, Johannes Höhn, and Lennart Pagel currently belong to the most well-known German Instagram photography collective. Your journey through Canada and Alaska starts in Whitehorse on the shores of the Yukon River and heads west on the Alaska Highway into Kluane National Park. In the middle of the Kluane Icefield, one of the largest contiguous glacial ice fields outside of the polar regions, Mount Logan rises 5,959 meters above sea level. The vastness and inaccessibility of the Yukon becomes clear in the shadow of the tallest mountain in Canada. Finally, you take the Top of the World Highway to Dawson. The city lies on the banks of the Yukon River and is still considered the heart of the Canadian gold rush. The first stop in Alaska is Tok, the so-called sled dog capital of Alaska. From there, the journey takes you via Fairbanks and Nenana to Denali National Park, the largest nature reserve in the world. The entire region is dominated by the 6,194-meter-high Denali — the tallest mountain in North America. Under orange sunsets and violet storm clouds, the final leg will take you to Anchorage, the last destination along this journey.

Waypoints.

Whitehorse.

Whitehorse is located on the banks of the Yukon River and is surrounded by the peaks of Grey Mountain, Haeckel Hill, and Golden Horn Mountain. Few cities in the world have such seamless access to the wilderness and yet offer all the amenities of a modern metropolis.

Alaska Highway.

The Alaska Highway connects the 48 contiguous states of the U.S. with Alaska. The road is 2,400 kilometers long and runs from the Canadian province of British Columbia through the Yukon territory to Alaska.

Kluane National Park.

The Yukon is a land of extremes: Kluane National Park, located in the southwestern part of the province, is home not only to Canada's highest peak and largest ice field, but also North America's most genetically diverse population of grizzly bears.

Top of the World Highway.

The road to Alaska goes through the "Top of the World Highway," a road that winds its way over mountain peaks and offering breathtaking views.

Dawson.

The Klondike gold rush made Dawson famous. Since then, almost 600 tons of gold have been found around the Klondike and Yukon rivers. The small town still benefits from active gold mining and the resulting tourism industry that has sprung up around it.

Tok.

The first stop on this route in Alaska is Tok, about 150 kilometers from the Canadian border. This is the so-called sled dog capital and a good place to investigate the outdoor activities on offer throughout the region.

Nenana.

Originally, Nenana was built as a simple construction camp for the workers on the Alaska Railroad. Today, you can stop here to learn about Athabascan natives and admire their pearl work, among other attractions.

Denali National Park.

Denali National Park is the largest protected ecosystem in the world. It measures around 24,000 km², nearly ten times the size of Luxembourg. Denali National Park is home to over 750 different plant, 39 mammal and 165 bird species. Grizzly bears, caribou, and wolves often range close to the roads that snake through the park.

Anchroage.

The pioneering spirit of the early settlers is still tangible in Anchorage. Hikes, kayak tours, dog sleigh rides or iceberg tours are tempting options from this location. In winter, the area hosts one of the snowiest ski resorts in North America.
