Your spectacular Yukon Sightseeing Tour begins with a narrated overview of Skagway's Historic District. Then we follow the Klondike Highway out of Skagway, paralleling the original White Pass Trail and the White Pass & Yukon Railroad train ride. As you climb out of the valley you may see one of the trains climbing the pass.
Crossing the White Pass Summit area, you will drive through the Tormented Valley with its unique landscape, and past majestic lakes and mountains of northwest British Columbia and into the southwest corner of the Yukon Territory. Your mini coach, unlike the large touring buses, can make stops in more places, offering you the chance for more photo stops. Although animal sightings can never be guaranteed, the further from civilization you go, the chances always improve.
All too soon it is time to turn back towards Skagway.

We had a fantastic time. Our tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He stopped often to point out scenery or give us the history of what we were looking at. He even volunteered to take pictures with our cameras or phones.

The day was overcast and chilly, but visibility was very good. We saw the beautiful countryside with numerous mountain goats and Dahl sheep. As we drove along one of the riders said she saw a bear in the bushes beside the road. We went back and watched a grizzly happily grazing. She even reared up on her hind legs several times. Watched about 5 min until she moved into thicker brush. This alone made the trip worthwhile.

We loved the smaller group size of your tours ... much more personal! We had a great driver who was very experienced, could provide great information on the area and made lots of stops for photos! We really enjoyed having the opportunity to get out into ""REAL ALASKA"" and travel all the way to the Yukon!
