Skagway Yukon Discovery & Sled Dog Tour

Enjoy the dogsled ride of a lifetime! Miles of pristine wilderness, crystal lakes, waterfalls and glaciers (weather permitting).

Your all-day Yukon adventure begins as you parallel the 1898 Gold Rush Trail over the White Pass summit into Canada's legendary Yukon by mini-coach leaving behind the coastal rainforest and into the Boreal forest wilderness of the north. We watch for wildlife like bears all along the route. Sites along the way include Pitchfork Falls, the Welcome to Alaska sign, Summit and Divided Lakes, Tormented Valley of sub-arctic alpine tundra, panoramic views at Lakes Tutshi and Tagish. Bove Island, the quaint village of Carcross, Bennett Lake and the Carcross Desert, affectionately known as the world's smallest, and gorgeous green Emerald Lake.

Arriving at Caribou Crossing, even though the winter snows have melted you can still enjoy summer dogsledding on our custom wheeled training cart. Your approximately 20 minute ride will give you the thrill of being whisked along the 2 mile trail through an area actually traveled by the Gold Rush stampeders!! Hear the unique and exciting stories of winter dog mushing including the Iditarod race, carouse with the playful puppies and pet the sled dogs. Fun for all ages!
