Marvel at the rugged terrain that changes from waterfalls, rivers, mountains and glaciers to alpine tundra near the White Pass Summit. You’ll also travel through a stunted 300-year-old forest. These remote landscapes inspired nature-loving authors like Jack London and Robert Service.

As you listen to your informative guide about the history of the Alaskan gold rush, keep watch for wildlife, including caribou and bears.

During the return journey to Skagway, stop at the ‘Welcome to Alaska’ sign and take a photo as a souvenir of your travels in the Alaskan wilderness.
