After meeting your Skagway Sightseeing Shore Excursion staff and leaving Skagway on the Klondike Highway, you will parallel the historic White Pass Trail much of the way to the 3,292-foot summit. Along the way as traffic allows, your Skagway Sightseeing Excursion guide will make photo stops at some of the scenic lookouts such as Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls, Moore Creek Bridge, views of the WP&YR railroad and Welcome to Alaska sign. Keep your eyes open for potential wildlife.

Once at the summit, you will enter the daunting Tormented Valley in British Columbia, Canada. As you travel farther north, toward the Yukon border, spectacular scenery of dramatic lakes and the Northern Boreal forest wilderness with surround you. 20-minute photo stops will be made at Lakes Tutshi and Tagish, and at the Yukon Border sign. They will also make a 45-minute stop at the Yukon Suspension Bridge attraction for crossing the bridge, enjoy the Tutshi River views, snack bar, and restroom opportunity.

Although wildlife sightings can never be guaranteed, the Yukon (further away from civilization) offers a better opportunity to encounter bears, moose, sheep, goats and more on this Yukon Discovery Excursion from Skagway Alaska! Total driving time from Skagway, including stops, is approximately 1.5 hours up to the turn around point, and 1 hour back down to Skagway. Photo stops at the lakes will be taken in between.

If time allows, optional photo stops are possible. This will depend on weather, traffic and the speed of your group. You will return to Skagway down the same valley highway, seeing more incredible scenic views that you missed on your way up.

Excellent quality excursion

Mike was our expert guide for this half day tour. We were in a comfortable van and only 10 people so very personalised. My passion is photography and Skagway has perfect panoramic shots. It was nice to see the mountain goats with the beautiful capped mountains in the background. Had never been to Alaska and was impressed with so much history and Mike was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. You can tell he likes his job.

This excursion was ideal for me, not to much walking and lots of unbelievable sightings...Gregory was our guide/driver, anything you want to know, just ask him, I don't know how he does it but he is VEEEEERY knowledgeable... On our way back to Skagway I went to buy souvenirs for family and friends, found some great handcrafted pieces!!

Beautiful day, great tour

Our tour guide, Bev, was very interesting and we had beautiful weather. We lucked out and even saw a bear cub along the way. There were plenty of stops to take photographs. We were a little rushed at the end and missed out on a stop at the waterfalls which I was disappointed about. This excursion did a good job of covering a lot of historical points and seeing some wonderful views. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low-activity way to see the country-side. I was glad we booked the half-day over the full day though as I felt that the half day did a good job covering things and still left us some time in port. The prices over the cruise line and the worry-free guarantee ensure that I will book with you again.
