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.

The tour staff were not visible at the waiting area. The tour guide was awesome and made sure we had a good time.
Brian was a great guide. In addition to beautiful scenery, learned a lot about life in Skagway and the Yukon. We ended up taking the longer tour and we loved it. Traveled in comfortable coach where we could stop and see the scenery. Got to play with sled dogs. Would highly recommend this tour.

We did not see any wildlife but the area was beautiful, the driver/guide was very good and knowledgeable about the area. Enjoyed the town of Skagway.

We were totally pleased with our tour from Skagway into the Yukon. Our driver was knowledgeable and had excellent taste in deciding which adventures to share during the trip. He is new to AK and told many inside stories of understanding the local conditions and people. The tour company was generous. Plenty of time was allowed for for photo opps. 10-11/10 in favor of this experience!
