Overview
While in Skagway port, spend half a day discovering the wild beauty of Canada’s Yukon territory via a mini-bus. This tour travels along the Klondike Highway, with mountain and waterfall scenery that will take your breath away. Wind your way up to White Pass summit and feast eyes on the dramatic landscape of Tormented Valley. Spot wildlife along the way, and don’t forget to take a commemorative shot at the Yukon border sign. Note: bring a current, valid passport.
What to Expect
After pickup from Skagway port, board your mini-bus and drive along the Klondike Highway in British Columbia. Amid stunning mountain scenery, pass landmarks including Brackett Wagon Road, WP&YR railroad, Moore Creek Bridge and Pitchfork Falls. During the day, keep watch for moose, bears, birds, sheep and goats.

Ascend 3,292 feet (1003 meters) to White Pass summit, a route that thousands of stampeders journeyed in 1898 during the Gold Rush in search of fortune. Enter Tormented Valley, a subarctic alpine tundra with a beautiful lake.

Travel into northern boreal forests and stop at Tutshi and Windy Arm lakes, surrounded by towering peaks. Bonus stop at the Yukon Suspension Bridge for views of the scenic span above the Tutshi river canyon. Also available on site are restrooms, snack bar and gift shop. (Crossing of Bridge is not included or is there time to add on this option). Make a final stop at the Yukon border sign and take a souvenir photo of your shore excursion. Afterward, enjoy transport back to your cruise ship in Skagway.

Please note: All passengers must have a valid passport.

Beautiful scenery

My mom uses a walker and wasn't sure she could handle the train. The driver was very nice and knowledgeable. My mom was very comfortable on the shuttle and we all had a great time.

I'm not sure what the company policy is on refund related to weather, but even if the weather was drizzly, cloudy, overcast, it would still be a fun excursion. Most of it is seeing the scenery while riding in the van with... More
