Sightseeing tour I Length: Full day I Departure: On request (AM)

The Skagway Day Tour is a very enjoyable day of travel as we enter the coastal mountain ranges and head down to the historic town of Skagway, Alaska.
Take the most scenic drive ever from Whitehorse on to the South Klondike Highway with many stops along the way including Emerald Lake and historic Carcross. Travel through the spectacular barren beauty of the White Pass summit area which is the highest point of the highway and possibly see glimpses of the popular historic train and railway carving its way around the mountainsides in and out of the valley from Skagway. Take a memorable photo at the Welcome to Alaska sign with a stunning backdrop to add to the great shot. While driving thru steep canyons you’ll follow in the very footsteps of the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders and hear about their epic stories as they made their way to the goldfields of the Klondike.
Once in Skagway, we will give you an orientation of the area and off you go to explore on your own with a stroll down famous Broadway Street to check out the shops or take the time to have lunch on your own and maybe sample some fresh halibut or salmon. Then we will meet back with the group as we will continue on with several site visits and historic landmarks off the beaten path to top off our time in Skagway. Sit back, relax and enjoy this day trip as we make our way back to Whitehorse at the end of the day.
