Skagway White Pass Summit and Beyond Tour

This excursion will travel 100 miles roundtrip through beautiful wilderness to the Yukon border. There are many scenic photo stops throughout the tour as your guide narrates the tour with history of the Gold Rush and the unique nature of the area.

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 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 moose, bears, birds, mountain goats, and Dall sheep. The turnaround point is the Yukon border and 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. Snack bar is available to purchase food and then we visit Yukon gift shop for mementos. This stop makes the tour unique among tour options that do similar itinerary.

Excellent bus trip over the pass to the Yukon suspension bridge with enough photo stops, shame about the low clouds but you can't control the weather. Driver John was very informative.

Jul 2019 - Karen G.

We could not have had a more adventurous tour than this one on July 8th covering the White Pass Summit and Yukon. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable of the area, both geographic and historical sites. My granddaughter enjoyed every minute of it. (A little snow would have added to the memory, no fault of yours.)

Jul 2019 - VERLENE B.

Awesome. We had great weather that day. So glad we didn't take the train as we were able to get out and really look at the various areas. Saw a wild sheep up on the ridge.

Jul 2019 - Gina W.

This was one of our favorite excursions in Alaska. Tyler,our tour guide, did a great job of explaining the different environmental zones of Alaska so we could understand both the richness and harshness of the area. He incorporated the history as well as the present and we were able to see quite a few spectacular views. He gave us ample time to get out and take photos at the many stops along the way and even helped with some pictures. This is not a strenuous tour and you don't do a lot of hiking but you are able to see and understand quite a bit of the diversity of Alaska in a short 50 mile shuttle ride while getting out and capturing the views at the photo stops. We felt like we understood Alaska so much better after taking this tour and would highly recommend it.

Jul 2019 - ELIZABETH S.

Loved this tour. Our driver was wonderful, she did a nice job with our boarder crossing, giving us a verbal overview, and stopping to take pictures. Our trip went further than the train. The smaller bus was full, but since there are only 2 seats on each side it was very easy to see everything and the temp was comfortable. We thought making stops along the way would be a better way to see the countryside, and that was true. Loved it. Especially the stop with the swinging bridge.. On our way back we saw a smaller black bear that came down a mountainside and then wanted to cross the road. We stopped and went back to see it. It was right next to the bus - great picture. Fun! Highly recommend this excursion!!

Jul 2019 - Stacy F.

Our guide was fantastic! So knowledge and friendly. The scenery was breathtaking, even with the smoke from the fires in Canada. We chose this instead of the train ride because we could make stops at points of interest. Loved it!

We had a fantastic time. We were a party of 11. We booked this excursion at the last minute and so glad we did. There was someone at the docks to great us and showed us where to go and where to board our bus. Our tour guide Jessie was super. Very knowledgable. Stopped at all the right stops. Help take photos of all the groups and did not rush us in any way. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone

Jun 2019 - Jennelle C.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Bev! She told some great stories and made so many stops with great views! It was the perfect way to see various areas around Skagway without our younger kids getting too tired from walking.

May 2019 - Kenneth W.

Best tour of our itinerary. Tour guide Max excellent. Great knowledge and personality.

May 2019 - Karin B.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, T-Bone, was great and had a lot of information to share. He got us to all the stops, even rearranging so we'd have the site (mostly) to ourselves. The bus was comfortable, which was a big factor in our choosing this tour over the train. We even thought the length of the tour was just enough to not get too tired to enjoy the end. Would recommend to anyone.

May 2019 - Tracy J.

I would do this excursion again. The scenery is amazing.
