Skagway White Pass Summit and Beyond Tour

79 reviews

Excursion Overview

100 miles roundtrip through the beautiful wilderness to the Yukon border!

You'll travel up the Klondike Highway, viewing impressive scenery as you go, from the breathtaking coastal mountain ranges to stunning waterfalls. Local landmarks include the White Pass & Yukon Railroad route, Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Moore Creek Bridge, and the 3292-foot White Pass Summit with the Welcome to Alaska sign.

At the Summit, we enter into British Columbia, Canada, and the "Tormented" Valley, a wilderness of subarctic alpine tundra and beautiful lakes. Beyond the Tormented Valley is the wilderness of the northern Boreal forest with large Tutshi and Tagish lakes with panoramic views at many stops. As we travel through the habitat of the Boreal forest, we watch for potential native wildlife roaming the spectacular scenery, including bears. The turnaround point is the Yukon border and the Welcome to the Yukon sign for a great photo.

As a bonus, we include a stop at the Yukon Suspension Bridge! View the Tutshi River canyon from above while crossing the bridge and learn more about the area with the educational displays. A snack bar is available to purchase food and then we visit the Yukon gift shop for mementos. This stop makes the tour unique among tour options that do have a similar itinerary.

In the past I have enjoyed the White Pass Railway. However, I am actually glad we took this excursion because it was significantly better than the train in my opinion! We enjoyed being able to get out and take pictures as well as visiting the Yukon Suspension Bridge. The bus was not full, so we had room to spread out and take full advantage of all the windows. This was my father s first trip to Alaska and he just raved about how much he enjoyed this excursion and everything that he got to see. Patrick was a fabulous tour guide and answered all our questions. We also got to see a black bear on the side of the highway which just made everybody s trip that day I think. Pick up and drop off was very easy especially with my 83-year-old dad.

I thought this was a train tour but ended up being a bus tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and got us to all photo op stops that he could. We got to see a bear which was super exciting. Overall I'd recommend choosing Alaska Shore Excursions!

We are thrilled we chose this excursion. Our Driver, Patrick, was personable and professional. We experienced things we would not have if we took the train as we were planning to do. We can highly recommend this Tour to anyone.
