Skagway Shore Excursion: Half-Day Tour to the Yukon Border

Half-Day Tour to the Yukon Border

The White Pass was a route that was used in 1898 during the Gold Rush by those seeking fortune and you will discover this famous trail on your half-day tour of the Yukon. After your ship docks in Skagway, you'll head out up the Klondike Highway, beholding impressive scenery as you go, from the breathtaking coastal mountain ranges to the stunning waterfalls. Travel past local landmarks such as WP&YR railroad, Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls and Moore Creek Bridge; then climb a 3292-foot (1003-meter) summit to White Pass and enter into Canada and the "Tormented" Valley, a subarctic alpine tundra.

As you journey through Canada, keep an eye out for native wildlife -- you may spot moose, bears, birds, sheep, goats and more! While in the Northern Boreal Forest, you'll stop at Lakes Tutshi and Windy Arm, which are surrounded mile-high mountains. Lastly, take a photo at the Yukon Border sign for memorable photo souvenir.

We loved this tour - guide was great made many stops so we could take pictures. Better than the train that didn't go as far and did not stop. Scenery. Skagway was our favourite town along the Alaskan trip.

Great tour. Our tour guide Jessica did a wonderful job. She was very outgoing and very knowledgeable. She was very informative and gave us plenty of photo opportunities. I highly recommend this tour! The price was fantastic and worth every penny and then some! She took pics of me and my wife standing in front of both the "Welcome to Alaska" and "Welcome to the Yukon" signs!! I will definitely consider doing this tour on my next cruise to Alaska!
