“It’s not very often a new, long highway is opened up anywhere in the world, and I think the interest in getting to the end of the road and getting to dip your toe in the Arctic Ocean will be high.”  - Robin Anderson, global marketing manager for the Yukon government, Globe and Mail

Canadian tour operator, AndersonVacations, in partnership with the Northwest Territories and Yukon provincial governments as well as  local Inuit businesses, will have two tours departing in April and June 2018.
