This excursion begins with a tour of the Historic Downtown District of Skagway before traveling over the rugged coastal mountain range of the White Pass where we will see glacier fed waterfalls amidst the temperature rainforest. Once we make it over the summit we enter British Columbia and travel through a 300 year old forest of stunted trees in Tormented Valley. We then journey through the Southern Lakes region to the border of the Yukon Territory. Photo stops include Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Welcome to Alaska Sign, Tormented Valley, Tutshi Lake and the Welcome to the Yukon Sign. There is always an opportunity to see wildlife such as Bear, Mountain Goat, Moose, Marmot, Lynx and Ptarmigan. Everyone will have the opportunity to drink ice cold glacier water from their free souvenir cup! Optional additional stops include Tutshi Sled Dog Camp, the Yukon Suspension Bridge and gold panning.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fabulous tour. We have been on several cruises and many tours and excursions. This was the BEST!! Rayme was awesome, very personable and has a vast knowledge of the wildlife, land and customs of Alaska and the Yukon. We stopped at the suspension bridge, panned for gold (tourist style) and went to the musher's camp for a puppy pet. The highlight of the tour was the absolutely magical scenery and Raymie's expertise regarding the area. Highly recommend and will book with her again when we are in Skagway
