Tour Details

Departing from Skagway's glacially carved coastline you will ride over the coastal mountain range, through the White Pass Summit Area known as the Tormented Valley. Making your way across the northwest corner of British Columbia and into the southwest corner of the Yukon, you will savor majestic mountain vistas, pristine lakes, and crisp, clean air. A photo stop will be made at Emerald Lake before traveling on to Caribou Crossing Trading Post and Museum. During this time, you can relax and enjoy a tasty Yukon-style lunch, visit one of the most spectacular wildlife museums in North America, and visit a dog mushers camp. The museum's exhibits range from Ice Age specimens to animals more recently introduced into the Yukon. Also, included are exotic animals from both the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Alaska and the Yukon, as well as from around the world.

The highlight of your day may be your visit to the mushing camp at Caribou Crossing, where mushers prepare their dogs for the world's toughest dogsled race, the "Yukon Quest". Your time in the camp includes a 20-minute presentation on the art of mushing, including how they train in the summer without snow, followed by a five to six-minute ride with an experienced dogsled musher over cut trails in a dog cart pulled by racing huskies. There will also be time to play with the puppies, so do not forget your camera. All too soon it is time to begin the approximate 2 hour drive back to Skagway.
