Land of the Midnight Sun

Following the gold rush trail, climbing peaks and dodging grizzly bears… We celebrate the start of our adventure alongside the Gulf of Alaska’s Cook Inlet in downtown Anchorage with group photos and perhaps a bite of smoked salmon. Time to ride. In early July at latitude 61 degrees N we could cycle into the late night twilight but we will keep our distances closer to 110 km/day as we spin up the Glenn Highway and revel in the stark beauty of the Matanuska Glacier.

Besides, we don’t want to run into a Grizzly Bear in the wee hours of the morning!

From Gulkana we take the Tok Cut-Off past the Wrangell Mountains, home to some of the continent’s highest peaks, until we reach our first rest day in Tok Junction. There we join the fabled Alaska or Alcan Highway bound for the Yukon Territory, Canada’s land of the Midnight Sun.

We will overnight in Destruction Bay, a hamlet next to Kluane Lake and Kluane National Park, not far from Snag, Canada’s all time cold spot which registered a bone numbing -81°F during the winter of 1942. This section ends in Whitehorse alongside the Yukon River which thousands of fortune hunters trekked and sailed down to Dawson City during the famous Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890s.
