River Float or Hike & Float and White Pass Summit & City Combo Day
Save money and see all the highlights in one day with two great tours!
For your morning tour, join our White Pass Summit & City tour for a drive up the Klondike Highway by mini-bus, paralleling much of the Gold Rush Trail of 1898. Along the route are spectacular views of the Railroad, waterfalls, rugged peaks, glaciers and historical overlooks.Upon cresting the White Pass Summit (3292 feet), take in vistas of the sub-arctic alpine tundra of the “Tormented” Valley, with Summit Lake and remnants of winter snows. At the US/Canadian border, have a photo opportunity with the Welcome to Alaska sign! Our return trip takes us the Skagway Scenic Overlook, which offers a panoramic view of the town, harbor and cruise ships. Included is our Historic downtown with a full narration and the Gold Rush Cemetery to hear tales of the infamous outlaw, Soapy Smith. Passports are required.
For your afternoon, get close to Nature with our Scenic River Float. Enjoy a beautiful coastal drive by van to the Dyea valley, an old Gold Rush settlement now returned to nature. As you float down the gentle Taiya River with your guide at the oars, you will watch for wildlife (possible are Bald Eagles, bears at certain times of year) and hear stories of the area’s fascinating history while you enjoy the gorgeous river and mountain views. Time on river is approx. 40 minutes (varies with water levels). Dyea is a peaceful getaway from bustling Skagway and a perfect opportunity to feel part of the great Alaskan outdoors. If you would prefer a more active tour, you can add the Chilkoot Trail Hike & Float instead which adds a moderately strenuous 2 mile (1.5-2 hour) hike prior to the Float portion. See more details of this tour on the Hike and Float page.
Between tours you have about 1.5 hours (with Float) or 2.5 hours (with Hike & Float) for lunch and strolling quaint and historic downtown Skagway.
