Get off the beaten path and learn about another Gold Rush, and the Capital of the Yukon!
We start with a trip up the beautiful White Pass. In the sub-alpine, we cross into British Columbia, up through the Yukon to the Carcross Desert, and Emerald Lake. We have lunch and a break in Carcross, YT.
Then, it's off the beaten track to the Gold Rush town of Atlin BC, where we spend the night on the shore of a spectacular, gigantic lake. We explore the historic downtown and the surrounding area, then head to the capital of the Yukon Territory, Whitehorse. We visit the Miles Canyon rapids, The restored paddle wheeler SS Klondike on the banks of the mighty Yukon, and either the McBride Museum or the Beringia Museum, whichever you prefer. Lunch in Whitehorse, or in Carcross on the way back. We can always pick up a picnic and enjoy it on the way back to Skagway at one of several beautiful spots along Lake Tagish or Lake Tutshi.
We make many beautiful stops on this tour, we have the time!
This tour offers the chance to see some things that most visitors to Skagway don't see. Atlin is a very special place.
