Go for gold. Go for gold. Thousands have before you, because the once infamous port of Skagway was gateway for the 1898 Yukon Gold Rush. Climb aboard the historic White Pass & Yukon Railway, travelling though stunning mountain scenery to a trail camp where you can pan for gold and enjoy ‘naughty nineties’-style entertainment.

It's not surprising that long, narrow Glacier Bay attracts such a variety of wildlife. Along one side runs the edge of Glacier National Park, home to wolves, moose, grizzly and brown bears, blacktail deer and lynx. Listen for the amazing sound of a glacier "calving." Once you hear it, you'll never forget it.

Ketchikan is in the heart of the Tongass National Forest – all 17 million acres of it – so there’s no shortage of outdoor fun. Take a seaplane over the 3,000-feet granite walls of Misty Fjords, go black bear watching as they fish for salmon in Neets Bay, zip from platform to platform across the rainforest canopy, or paddle a sea kayak out to unspoilt islands.

Victoria, British Columbia
Standing on the tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is a genteel kind of place with delightful landscaped parks, like the century-old Butchart Gardens, and carefully preserved historic buildings. See it in fitting style by horse-drawn trolley, take afternoon tea at the grand Empress Hotel, or take a tour of the city’s pubs and microbreweries for a glass or two of the local ales.

Founded by millionaire John Jacob Astor in 1811, this fur trading post clustered around the mouth of the Columbia River was the oldest settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. Much of its history of whaling, exploration and shipwrecks - and the city's heart and soul - centered around the river and the sea. Today, the fine old candy-colored Victorian homes of Astoria's earliest residents still line the well-manicured streets.

Ok, you may not want to leave your heart here but you’ll be bowled over nevertheless. From the seafood restaurants of Fisherman’s Wharf to the busy streets of Chinatown, the department stores of Union Square to the eerie cells of Alcatraz prison, San Francisco is like no city on earth. And the best way to see it all (and get up and down those impossible hills) is aboard the city’s signature cable cars.
