Skagway City and White Pass Summit

Skagway City and White Pass Summit

The drive up the Klondike Highway parallels much of the Gold Rush Trail of 1898, where stampeeders struggled to climb carrying their ton of goods during winter snows. Along the route are spectacular vistas of steep mountains, coastal rainforest and historical stops, including Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Moore Creek Bridge overlook, and views of the WP&YR railroad. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and watch for wildlife.

Upon cresting the White Pass Summit (3292 feet, 1003 meters), take in views of the sub-arctic alpine tundra of the “Tormented” Valley, with its crystal blue Summit Lake and snowcapped mountains. At the US/Canadian border, have a photo opportunity with the Welcome to Alaska sign!

Our return trip takes us the Skagway Scenic Overlook, which offers a panoramic view of the town, harbor and cruise ships. Included are the Historic downtown and the Gold Rush Cemetery to visit our infamous outlaw, Soapy Smith, and hear tales of the early pioneers. Your guide will bring the Gold Rush to life with many stories of the history of the era.

Tour varies with order of stops at guide's discretion. Passports (and Visa if necessary) are required.
