The hike portion is very active and considered moderate to strenuous on hilly terrain. After a scenic coastal drive to Dyea valley, the one-way hike leads you to the rafting departure point where you'll suit up to float on the tranquil river. Learn about the history and nature of the area from your guide while also keeping an eye out for possible wildlife sightings like bald eagles, seals, and the occasional bear.

About Chikoot Trail Guided Hikes & Hiking Tours

The Chilkoot Trail is part of Klondike Gold Rush National Park, running 33 miles along the Taiya River between Dyea (near Skagway, Alaska) and Bennett, British Columbia. It is possible to backpack along the trail (note that permits are required), but you can enjoy much of the abundant wildlife, scenic views, and rich history via a shorter guided hike and rafting tour. If you have the time available, we recommend choosing the longer tour that includes a drive to the White Pass summit. Our guided hikes allow you to enjoy an active 2 hour, one-way hike then relax on a tranquil river float.
