Eric was friendly, funny, and informative throughout the tour. He stopped for beautiful photo ops and took pictures for our family. The sled dogs/puppies were adorable, sweet, and well behaved. Very informative presentation as well. The gold panning was a fun family activity that provided a bit of gold to take home.

Trip to Yukon

Lack of snow diminished the dog sled run (obviously). The best part was the trip up and back and the incredible scenery. Note, the unidentified ore in the gift shop is peacock ore, copper. Over all, a very good adventure worth the fee.

Lots of puppies

It was a beautiful day for a drive into the Yukon! We saw a lot of beautiful scenery and were able to stop and take photos several times, unfortunately no wildlife. My grandchildren had a great time. The gold panning was a small disappointment not exactly what we expected and only found a very few flakes of gold.(The last time we were in Alaska and panned for gold everyone was guaranteed flakes equal to stars in the state flag). The children could barely see their gold. Other than the gold panning I would have given 5 stars.

The scenery on the was to and from the adventure was spectacular. That in itself was worth the trip. The sled dog adventure was very informative and a lot of fun. We are extremely happy we chose the excursion.

Our tour guide, Jack, picked us up for one of the prettiest drives into the Yukon all the while explaining the history of the Gold Rush and the current history of Skagway and the Yukon. We got to Michelle Phillip’s sled dog training area and cuddled the most adorable puppies and pet some beautiful friendly mamas and retired dogs. We learned about the different gear and all the training that goes into the dogs by Erin and then a team was hitched to an ATV and we were taken on a super fun ride. Erin stopped and took all our cameras and took tons of pictures! We got to spend more time with all the dogs and then Jack took us to an area to pan for gold. We each had about 5 pieces in our pans. We had some time to shop in the little store and then Jack drove us back, stopping at prime locations to let us get out and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. We even got to see a bear running into the woods!! When we arrived back in Skagway, he let us off in town to do some shopping! This was our favorite excursion! Thank you, thank you!

Fun afternoon for kids

The pick you up in. Medium sized tour bus. Brief tour of Skagway, then a 20 minute drive to the dog sled adventure where you ride in 4 wheel ATV pulled by a team of Alaskan Huskies. The ATV and dogs run on a dirt path with some small slopes so ATV engine is on and assist the dogs uphill. After the ATV sled ride you pan for gold in a trough on the property. On the way back to Skagway, you have a few more stops. Go to waterfall. Welcome signs for Alaska and Yukon and more photo taking. We saw a Black Bear from the bus and the driver stopped and allowed us to take photos from the bus.. Overall worthwhile trip. My on caveat is if you go on ATV dog sled and stand in back, as not everyone gets a seat, hold the ATV rail (roll bar) tight as the ride is bumpy and a bit hilly.

We enjoyed this trip immensely! Our guide, Jack, was great and entertaining. The kids (ages 11 and 9) loved the dog sledding and panning for gold.

Fantastic Experience

We all loved this tour! Our group consisted of two senior citizens, four adults, one 10yr old and two 4yr olds. The experience appealed to us all. We loved playing with the puppies and seeing the dogs pull our "sled". We were there in the summer so it wasn't really a sled but it was till really cool. We also did a little gold panning, which my 10yr old loved but it was not a big part of the tour. Just a small highlight. The drive was a little bit longer from the docks (we were one a cruise) but they picked us up and dropped us off right in front so that was convenient. Our driver also stopped at various spots along the way so we could take pictures and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Overall it was fantastic and I would highly recommend it for families.

A very unique experience for the family to experience a sled dog ride over a rough terrain. The kids enjoyed the puppies as well as their chance to pan for gold.

We're thrilled that the kiddos had such a great time. Yukon Dogs and Gold is such a great experience for any age group but watching kids play with puppies is golden.
