Itinerary

You can discover Southeast Alaska and the Yukon by bicycle on your own schedule and leave the professional planning for your tour to a proffesional outfitter. Let them provide you with all the necessary equipment and arrangements to bike the Golden Circle at your own pace, carrying our gear.

Upon your arrival in Haines, you will make any final adjustments to your bike and gear and familiarize yourself with town and the route. You are within walking distance to the ocean, grocery stores, museums, and restaurants. Spend the afternoon exploring Haines and preparing for your ride. You will need to pack your own bike and purchase enough groceries to sustain you through the first 160 miles of spectacular wilderness to Haines Junction in the Yukon Territory, Canada.

In Haines Junction, you intersect the Alaska-Canadian Highway and travel 100 miles to Whitehorse, the capitol of the Yukon. From Whitehorse you soon turn south to explore the Klondike Highway to its terminus in Skagway. A warm bed and refreshing shower will welcome you at a Skagway B&B or motel. Spend the evening exploring the historic district and reliving your Golden Circle adventure. In the morning you will leave the bike and camping equipment in Skagway.

Along the route, you will camp and cook using the gear provided. You will have the option to stay at lodging facilities in some areas. The seven days of biking traverses 360 miles of the most magical and scenic country in the world. For the independent bicycle adventurer this is a great way to explore the region on your own.
