Alaska offers fantastic chances to spot grizzly, brown and also black bears. "Travelling the roads less travelled in British Columbia and the Yukon in Canada we saw 16 black bears in two days", says Stuart from London. "This trip should be on everyone's bucket list!" Venturing into the wild in a converted school bus means you have more space and it is more like a “home” for everyone: Bigger windows, spacious seating, viewing platform on the roof, and tables to play cards or write your journals.
Alaska and Canada doesn't mean it's cold and snowy. The summer has almost 24 hours of daylight and average temperatures around 14-25 C. Plenty of time to hike the wilderness, kayak around ice bergs or try yourself in iceclimbing.
If you like outdoor activities and nature and want to explore the amazing landscape and animals of Alaska and Canada, we believe going on an overland trip is the best way to do it. You will be right out in the wilderness: trailblazing, spotting animals and enjoying evenings round the campfire. Yes, sometimes you might lack a shower or a proper toilet, but what is more rewarding than waking up in the middle of nowhere, the sun shining on your face and all you hear is the wind gently moving the bushes around you. There is nothing more peaceful than leaving civilization behind for a few days and slow down the pace we live. You will come back and appreciate your bathroom, bed, kitchen and realize that sometimes a little less (less information, less facebook, less comfort) can make you appreciate what and who you have in your life.
