Skagway Yukon Jeep Klondike Adventure

Welcome to an unforgettable Yukon Jeep Klondike Adventure! After transferring to the base camp just outside of Skagway, you will have a brief orientation before boarding your four-wheel drive Jeep Wrangler. Each jeep holds up to four guests. If you do not have four in your group, don't worry, we will match you up. Once set, you'll head out to follow the same valleys and summits of the Trail of '98. Your small group of explorers will journey into the Yukon Territory, tracing the famous routes taken by the hearty gold prospectors in the late 1800s. You'll be driving your Jeep into the very setting of the fabled gold rush legends told by Robert Service. Your tour guide in the lead Jeep will entertain you with the lore of the gold rush era by means of an interactive radio system. Driving a four-person Jeep Wrangler provides you the freedom of exploring Klondike Gold Rush routes from the roads less taken. Amazing vistas, accessible only by off-road vehicle, await you. View Pitchfork Falls, Moore Bridge, Dead Horse Gulch, Bracket Wagon Trail, and Tormented Valley en route to the historic village of Carcross, named after the narrow Caribou crossing at the headwaters of the mighty Yukon River. Your rugged Jeep Wrangler will take you up Montana Mountain where your panorama includes a view of the Carcross Desert, the smallest desert in the world. There are several points along your route where drivers can rotate. A drink and snack will be enjoyed during one of the stops. All U.S. and Canadian citizens are required to have in their possession, a photo I.D. and a passport. People of all other citizenships are required to have a photo I.D., a passport, and visa (if required).

Glacier Flightseeing, Wildlife Tour, and Scenic Cruise - Hai

Leave the crowds of Skagway behind on this unique combo excursion. This tour uses three modes of travel - public catamaran, 12-passenger van, and Alaskan bush plane - to explore Alaska's best glaciers, scenery, and wildlife. The trip begins with a 45-minute catamaran ride along the steep-walled fjords connecting Skagway to Haines. Over a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from the cliff sides on both sides of the boat. Learn about Tlingit culture, marvel at the scenery and look for humpback whales, harbor seals, and a variety of seabirds. Upon arrival in Haines, you will meet your expert guide and enjoy a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park, approximately 45 minutes away. This park has it all--a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, important Tlingit cultural sites, and a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears here. Your guide will pick a scenic spot to enjoy a picnic lunch. Board one of Alaska's famous bush planes for a 50-minute glacier tour. Soar past the face of the Rainbow Glacier, a hanging glacier with an immense waterfall pouring from its face. Continue to the Davidson Glacier to look down upon the Davidson Icefall, crisscrossed with crevasses and ice towers. This is a great opportunity to look for mountain goats as you glide over a sea of ice on your way back to Skagway

Skagway City and White Pass Summit

Sure to be a highlight of your Alaskan experience, the Skagway City and White Pass Summit Tour begins with a guided mini-coach tour of Skagway’s Historic District. Your guide will explain why Skagway was known as the toughest town on earth during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897-99. You will visit historic points of interest such as the Klondike Gold Rush Cemetery (aka Skagway's Boot Hill), where you will learn of the gunfight between Frank Reid and Soapy Smith, the most famous shootout since the OK Corral. A stop will also be made at the Scenic Skagway Overlook. Your guide will take your picture with the town below, the mountains in the background, and your cruise ship in the harbor. As you journey up the scenic Klondike Highway, you will travel parallel to the historic White Pass Trail much of the way to the 3,292 foot summit. Along this glacier carved valley are glaciers, thundering waterfalls, majestic mountain vistas and pristine wilderness. Once at the summit, you will descend into the daunting Tormented Valley in British Columbia, Canada. It is this area which inspired the classic authors Robert Service and Jack London. The Tormented Valley is an eco-tone; here, two separate ecosystems transform to become the other. After visiting this area of 300–400-year-old trees known as “Krummholz,” many of which are no taller than chest-high, you will return to Skagway. During your tour, various photo stops will be made to help you maximize your Alaskan experience. Please Note: This tour will be crossing the Canadian border and then back across the U.S. border. All U.S. and Canadian citizens 16 and older traveling between the U.S. and Canada are required to present a valid passport (or government authorized "enhanced" driver's license.) We recommend you bring a photo I.D. as well. U.S. and Canadian citizens who are 15 years old or younger may travel with a certified birth certificate. People of all other citizenships are required to have a photo I.D., a passport, and visa (if required). All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

The Dredge is a 350 ton Gold sifting machine brought back from the Klondike and reconstructed piece by piece on the shores of the Skagway River. You will see images of the Dredge in action; while hearing the voices of hardy old-timers who toiled under the Midnight Sun for the tons of recovered Gold. Short videos and audio presentations let you view the people and places affected by the Gold Dredge during its 60 years of operation.

Booking a Cruise to Alaska is one of those moments that you never forget. Making the decision to take the step out of the ordinary and go out into the wilderness is one that will last with you forever even as much as taken the cruise itself. Deciding to visit Alaska will be your first step to a whole new adventure of cruising and will open your eyes to world that you didn't even know existed.

Anyone been to Alaska? What was your favorite adventure? It’s time to start planning for Alaska. If you have something booked already start looking at the tour options. Most cruise lines allow you to pre book your tours up to 6 months in advance. Booking in advance will save you the disappointment of not getting the tour you want as a lot of tours have limited capacity so it is smart to plan ahead. If you haven’t booked and are thinking about it book early as prices are often lower for Alaska when you book in advance. Not sure? Then check out the website to see all the great things you can do in Alaska.

Info on Skagway

Skagway is a first-class town in Alaska, on the Alaska Panhandle. It was formerly a city first incorporated in 1900 that was re-incorporated as a borough on June 25, 2007. As of the 2000 census, the population of the city was 862. However, the population doubles in the summer tourist season in order to deal with more than 900,000 visitors.

The port of Skagway is a popular stop for cruise ships, and the tourist trade is a big part of the business of Skagway. The White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad, part of the area's mining past, is now in operation purely for the tourist trade and runs throughout the summer months. Skagway is also part of the setting for Jack London's book The Call of the Wild.

Skagway (originally spelled Skaguay) is from the Tlingit name for the area, "Skagua" or "Shgagwèi" meaning "a windy place with 'white caps on the water."
