White Pass Summit and Yukon Suspension Bridge Shore Excursion

For this Skagway excursion, bring your camera to capture the breathtaking scenery of White Pass Summit, Yukon suspension bridge, and the surrounding area. Your journey begins as your guide picks you up in a comfortable vehicle for a quick tour of Skagway's historic district. This frontier mining town was a prime gateway for prospectors stampeding into Alaska to mine their fortunes during the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1890s.

Continue towards the Chilkoot Mountains and be surrounded by majestic, forest-studded mountain peaks and pristine blue lakes as you ascend into the White Pass Summit area. During this tour in Skagway, there will be many stops for you to enjoy the incredible views.

Arrive at the Yukon Suspension Bridge and embrace your bravery as you walk across the bridge for one-of-a-kind views and photos of the Tutshi River Canyon and the raging rapids 57 feet below you. Take advantage of the many benches on the surrounding platform to quietly soak in the views while you learn about the gold rush as well as the area's natural history then take a stroll amongst the alpine wildflowers gracing the boardwalk.

If time permits your vehicle will stop at the Yukon Gold Rush Cemetery and Lower Reid Falls on your way back to port. Walk through the small cemetery with its myriad tombstones and notable eternal residents such as Soapy Smith and Frank Reid. At Lower Reid Falls you can take a short nature walk to the base of the falls and be rewarded with the roaring thunder of more than 100 feet of cascading water. This 3-hour intimate Skagway tour is a must-do to make your Alaskan experience complete! Book now for an amazing time in White Pass Summit that you'll remember for years to come.

Terrific tour and breathtaking views. Driver was very knowledgeable and, besides that, he was a professional photographer that showed us how to take great pictures.

FANTASTIC
September 01, 2022
A highlight of our entire cruise/trip. Our guide, Dale, was exceptional. He was personable, knowledgeable, connected with our group, took us to unique scenic spots, all of them gems. He offered excellent photography tips as well as took pictures with our phones to show us features. (He also took pictures with his professional camera.) The pace was perfect. He started at the most distant destination, the Yukon Suspension Bridge, and then worked back toward Skagway. He made sure to keep things moving, so we maximized how much we could see. Our group dynamics were also tremendous, and the entire experience was more than worthwhile and loads of fun. We got our best photos from the entire cruise on this excursion. Most highly recommended. Dale was a superstar.

Fringe Benefits on This One!

I am chalking this tour up to our fabulous guide, Dale, who showed us so much of the beautiful country driving through White Pass Summit, it was truly unreal. Turquoise lakes in a forest and waterfalls everywhere. Dale likes photography so he took clever pictures with our cell phones and stopped frequently. He was knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions. The bridge was very cool, and he gave us ample time to eat and walk around. Highly recommend this to see some of the Country you would not see otherwise. Dale is awesome and made this tour special!

Skagway ride and suspension bridge
July 17, 2022
It was a very relaxing way to spend an afternoon in Skagway. Dale, our guide, was quirky in a good way. He made us feel totally at ease for the drive to the suspension bridge through some drop dead gorgeous scenery. He knew some of the best photo stops, and we saw some wildlife in the form of eagles and a black bear along the way. Clearing customs was a breeze both ways, and the stop at the suspension bridge was different than I expected. It is very stable, and the views were amazing. The walk to the bridge, and the cabin at the other end had a lot of information and exhibits. It was also a very good gift shop. When back in Skagway, Dale made sure that he had time to take us to a beautiful waterfall that flows through the historic cemetery.

What a beautiful drive and awesome views. Our guide was super sweet and was sure to take pictures of all of us as she is also a photographer. She was mindful of the time but also made sure we saw the sights and had enough time and ample opportunities to see and take pictures. Worth the money!
