Globe Trekker Ian Wright begins his journey on the banks of the Yukon River in the small town of Eagle. From Eagle he travels to the town of Chicken, parties with the locals, goes on a tour in a 1946 light aircraft and pans for gold in the Fortymile River. Ian then travels north to the twin towns of Kennicott and McCarthy situated in Wrangell-St Elias National Park. The next leg of his journey takes Ian up the Prince William Sound to the town of Seward, the departure point for a sea kayaking trip. From Seward he travels to Homer, stopping off at the Kenai River to try his hand at salmon fishing. The final leg of Ian's journey takes him north, past Mt McKinley and up above the Arctic Circle to the land of the midnight sun.
