Sled Dog Adventure and Pan for Gold in the Yukon

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to one of the three different docks in town at least 15 minutes prior to departure, then board the 15- to 25-passenger minibus for your tour. 

    Your guide shares informative commentary as you head to White Pass, stopping when possible to see any wildlife along the way. If you're lucky, you might see bears, sheep, goats, marmots, or other native Alaskan animals. You'll also pull over to take in thundering waterfalls, historic landmarks, glaciers, alpine valleys, and the 'Welcome to Alaska' sign and the Yukon sign, and visit the gold rush town of Liarsville to pan for gold in their gold fields. 

    Your sled dog experience includes a ride in a 4-wheeler sled pulled by the dogs. So as not to overtax the dogs, going uphill and downhill the hardworking dogs receive help from the musher. Learn about the art of dogsledding from a Yukon mushing expert, and meet the puppies in the petting yard. Bring your passport for this experience just over the border in a remote part of Canada.

    Your tour ends with your choice of drop-off at your ship or in town.

    Going up hill the driver put it in drive, otherwise it was in neutral. It’s about a 1.5 mile loop that they do. My 5 kids had a blast....ages 19-9.
