What to Expect
Skip the car hire queues at Skagway on this full-day Yukon adventure.

Sit back and watch for potential wildlife along the tour route: bears, moose, caribou, and mountain goats. Inside Canada, enjoy pristine forest and scenic lakes, including Tutshi Lake, Tagish Lake, Lake Bennett, and Emerald Lake. Multiple stops are made for memorable photos. The tour is complete with expert narration about the history and nature of the region. Break for a hearty lunch at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post, which includes chicken with BBQ sauce, coleslaw, baked potatoes, donuts, and coffee (vegan/gluten-free options are also available). After lunch, explore the Museum of Yukon Natural History, with wildlife taxidermy specimens from the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Alaska and the Yukon and recreations of Ice Age species. Also onsite is a dogsledding camp with racing huskies that you can see in action. Finally, relax as your driver returns you to Skagway port with plenty of time to board.
