Tour Details

Sure to be a highlight of your Alaskan experience, this Skagway tour begins with a guided tour of Skagway's Historic District in a mini-coach holding no more than 32 passengers. 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 Pitchfork Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Bridal Veil Falls are the trailhead for the "Valdez Goat Trail", which is a section of the Trans Alaska Military Packtrain Trail, created during the Klondike Gold Rush.

As you journey up the scenic Klondike Highway you will 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.
