About the Tour
Take this Full Day Yukon Discovery Adventure as it begins in the town of Skagway and sweeps northward into the Yukon Territory. Taiya Inlet is surrounded by staggering mountains, and Skagway is rich with raw stories of Alaska's Gold Rush; yet it is the Klondike Highway that will take your breath away as your tour guide leads you towards the Canadian Border - past deep gorges, icy waterfalls, ancient glaciers and the awe inspiring mountains summoning the feverish gold miners. See the trail they took back in 1898 in order to gild their pockets with that deep lustrous yellow stuff. Stops along the way vary - but the views are spectacular!
At the Summit, the fabled words "There's gold in the Yukon!" might still echo back as you pass through the Tormented Valley where the true Sourdoughs hauled their one ton of goods ever northward towards the Golden Circle. Then pass by the Chilkoot Trailhead, a National Historic Site of Canada, and venture along the shores of scenic Lake Tutshi, and Taggish Lake until Caribou Crossing where we stop for lunch. After lunch and a visit to the Wildlife Museum, we will make a final stop at Emerald Lake.
