Yukon Sightseeing Tour
Yukon Scenic Sightseeing Tour from Skagway
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.

This was such a magnificent tour, one of my favorites! Being on the small bus, and making various stops along the way made the trip more personal. It was also a small group (less than 20), so there was plenty of time at each stop to admire the gorgeous scenery, walk around and take pictures. Our driver, Dori Madsen, was fantastic. She knows so much about the area, and even introduced us to some of her friends along the way. What a great day we had, I highly recommend this over the train, when you are in Skagway.

The weather was beautiful! We got to the check-in early enough to be upgraded to a longer tour into the Yukon. Our driver Maria was very chatty and provided a lot of information about the area and the history. We made a few stops along the way for pictures and rest stops but we had to get to Carcross in time for a BBQ lunch! On the way back, she showed us a desert and beach created after the glaciers receeded. A spontaneous turn into a campground found us between two bear cubs, not 20 feet from the van on either side. SO cool!! Maria even drove us to our ship because of the short timespan before it departed. It was the highlight of our cruise!

Very knowledgeable driver. Stopped frequently. Black bear sightings X 2, great picture opportunities. We were close enough for great shots with regular point and shoot cameras. The mountain goats needed a good zoom lens for decent pictures but the scenery was great. Lots of fun.
