Skagway Yukon Musher's Camp and Gold Panning

Drive up over 3,292 feet up the White Pass as you make your way to the historic Yukon! Make sure to have your passport ready as you cross the Canadian border and into the Yukon. Listen to your local tour guide as they regale stories of the gold rush, Yukon history, and teach you all about the native flora and fauna as you make your way to a remote Yukon Mushers camp.

At the mushers camp, you will get to learn all about the Iditarod, Alaska's most popular sport! You get 20 minutes of riding on an ATV equipped with real sled dogs to take you through the alpine wilderness. Back at the camp, you will also have the opportunity to pan for real gold and enjoy the thrill that sparked the Gold Rush! Don't worry, you get to keep anything you find!

On your way back depending on time, your tour guide may stop for a photo op at the "Welcome to Alaska!" sign and Bridal Veil Falls. This tour is a must for families, kids, and anyone who loves dogs!

Please note that passports are required on this tour.
