Tour description provided by Viator

Perfect for a short time in port, this Skagway shore excursion will show you a glimpse of Canada's legendary Yukon. On this half-day tour, you'll cross the border into Canada and drive along the Klondike Highway in British Columbia. As you travel, you'll see local landmarks and maybe even spot native wildlife roaming the spectacular scenery, including moose, bears, birds, mountain goats and more!


All passengers must have a valid passport.

The White Pass was a route that was used in 1898 during the Gold Rush by those seeking fortune and you will discover this famous trail on your half-day tour of the Yukon. After your ship docks in Skagway, you'll head out up the Klondike Highway, beholding impressive scenery as you go, from the breathtaking coastal mountain ranges to the stunning waterfalls. Travel past local landmarks such as WP&YR railroad, Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls and Moore Creek Bridge; then climb a 3292-foot (1003-meter) summit to White Pass and enter into Canada and the "Tormented" Valley, a subarctic alpine tundra.

As you journey through Canada, keep an eye out for native wildlife -- you may spot moose, bears, birds, sheep, goats and more! While in the Northern Boreal Forest, you'll stop at Lakes Tutshi and Windy Arm, which are surrounded mile-high mountains. Lastly, take a photo at the Yukon Border sign for memorable photo souvenir.
