Excursion Overview

Dramatic beauty surrounds you on this scenic drive out of Skagway

Skagway is known for its proximity to the Canadian border. Embark on a scenic drive up to the White Pass Summit and take in all the splendor that our neighbors to the north have to offer! Your adventure begins in downtown Skagway, where you'll find your tour guide and board the 24-passenger mini-bus.

Relax on a scenic ride up to the White Pass Summit, passing by majestic mountains, rainforests, and waterfalls. Upon reaching the summit, you'll enter what is known as the Tormented Valley. The valley is characterized by striking rock formations, brilliant green lakes, and colorful lichen lining the bedrock. Don't forget your camera!

After crossing the Canadian border, you'll visit the famous Yukon Suspension Bridge. The bridge is suspended 65 feet in the air, swaying over the rushing white-water rapids of the Tutshi River. There's truly no better way to witness the awe-inspiring power of Alaska's natural landscape. Before boarding the bus again, you'll have time to enjoy the bridge's outdoor walking museum, visit the gift shop, and try some yummy Canadian snacks. Then it's time to sit back and relax for the breathtaking drive back down to Skagway.

We had a great time on this excursion. Very insightful and informative! We missed getting tickets for the train and booked this excursion instead. So glad we did! Lots of opportunities to take pictures along the way. Loved the stop on the extension bridge!

I debated between this and the White Train excursion, and in the end chose this one because I wanted to be able to get out and look around. The tour actually followed the path of the train for a portion of it. The bus wasn't quite full. It was comfortable and the guide told us about so many things along the way, from geological features to history. I was happy to be able to get out and take pictures, and get a closer look at things like waterfalls and huge chunks of ice in the lake. It was a more intimate, personal experience than the train for sure. We were at the Yukon Suspension Bridge for about an hour. We had plenty of time to eat, take pictures, and walk around before heading back. I really enjoyed the tour and our guide, and felt this was a great alternative to the train.
