This brings us through Yukon Territory, the most wild and remote part of our trip, where moose alone outnumber the human population.

This morning, we travel to Fairbanks, passing through Delta Junction, an inland delta where the Chena and Tanana Rivers meet to feed Alaska’s largest agricultural area. Along the way, we can relive childhood dreams at the Santa Claus House in the town of North Pole, where the spirit of Christmas lives year-round. Tonight, we head out for dinner, Alaskan style! Delight in a traditional Alaska Salmon Bake with generous portions of salmon grilled over a wood fire.
