Skagway Shore Excursion: Full-Day Tour of the Yukon

Skagway Shore Excursion: Full-Day Tour of the Yukon

Gorgeous landscapes, wildlife sightings and time with dogsledding huskies — what could make for a more perfect day while your ship is docked at Skagway port? Your 6.5-hour shore excursion bustles you north along Klondike Highway, a route that parallels the 1898 Gold Rush Trail, as you make way to the US/Canadian border. Keep your eyes peeled for possible wildlife sightings, including Dall sheep, mountain goats, moose, bears and caribou.

Inside Canada, wind through a northern boreal forest for spectacular views of Bove Island, Tutshi Lake and Tagish Lake. Break for a photo stop at the Yukon border and then continue to Lake Bennett. Snap photos of the ‘World's Smallest Desert’ and Emerald Lake.

Arrive at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post and dig into hearty fare, Yukon style, which includes chicken with BBQ sauce, baked potato, coleslaw, dinner rolls, donuts and coffee.

Now that you’re warmed up, head inside the Museum of Yukon Natural History that houses impressive wildlife exhibits, from Ice Age specimens to more recent animal species in the Yukon. Animals from the arctic and subarctic regions of Alaska and the Yukon, as well as other regions in the world, are also on display.

Then, visit the on-site dogsledding camp and enjoy hands-on time with adorable huskies training for the Yukon Quest dogsled race. You’ll get to pet puppies, too, while hearing anecdotes from a musher about sledding adventures in the Yukon winter.

Want more time with huskies? In the summer, you can upgrade to take part in dogsledding. You'll be guided by a musher on a wheeled training cart along a forested trail (15- to 20-minute ride), used during the Gold Rush stampedes.

After time with the huskies, board your transport and relax on the return to Skagway port.

Please note: All passengers must have a valid passport.

Great bus tour. Our driver/tour guide, Tyler, was great. Stopped often for pictures and had an excellent knowledge of the route. Great lunch in Carcross, YT. Talked to people who took the train and they were not happy that it did not go to Carcross. Got back to Skagway in lots of time to get on the ship. 2 hours
