Hi all

me and my friend are going to be spending May and June in Canada and we're hoping to see as much as is humanly possible during the time.

After taking the Trans Canada Railway from Toronto to Victoria during April we are hoping to travel north to Dawson City and on to Alaska for a week during June - Has anyone got any suggestions on the best way to travel this route on the cheap?

To me the best way is to take the British Columbia and Alaska ferries all the way up the Inside Passage. It's like taking a cruise on the cheap. Go to the end of the route at Skagway and take the train into the Yukon, and then the bus from there. Plan to get on and off the ferries so you can experience the communities along the way.

Here are the appropriate links:
BC Ferries - http://www.bcferries.com/
Alaska Ferries - http://www.akferry.com/
White Pass Railway - http://www.whitepassrailroad.com/
Bus to Dawson - http://www.yukonalaskatouristtours.com/daw...ondiketour.html
Bus service in Alaska - http://alaska.org/gettingaround/advice-ala...-comparison.htm

Hopefully one of our Canadian moderators can find some blogs that cover this route.

Hope this helps a bit.
