Spend time in port in Skagway enjoying a full-day shore excursion into the Yukon, Canada's westernmost territory. Explore some of North America's most stunning wilderness, stop for lunch at Caribou Crossing, a wildlife museum, and visit a dog-sled camp, where you can meet the adorable huskies preparing for the Yukon Quest dog sled race. Be prepared to stand in awe of natural beauty of southeast Alaska, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory on this Skagway sightseeing tour.

Upgrade to Dog Sledding Option

Make your time in port complete with the addition of summer dog sledding. You'll be guided by an authentic musher on a thrilling 15-20 minute wheeled training cart along a forested trail, which was once traveled by the Gold Rush stampedes.

All passengers must have a valid passport.

When your cruise ship docks in Skagway, begin your adventure by climbing the Klondike Highway north to the US/Canadian border, which parallels the 1898 Gold Rush Trail. Cross into Canada and traverse through the spectacular Northern Boreal Forest, which includes Bove Island, Tutshi Lake and Tagish Lake. After you break for a photo at the Yukon border, you'll travel on to Lake Bennett, see the "World's Smallest Desert" and marvel at gorgeous Emerald Lake.

Stop at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post and Museum where you can relax and enjoy a tasty, satisfying lunch of baked chicken with BBQ sauce, baked potato, coleslaw, dinner rolls, donuts and coffee -- Yukon style! After lunch, visit one of the most spectacular wildlife museums in the North Country. As you stroll through the 9,000-square foot (2743-square meter) museum, you will find the quality of the wildlife exhibits to be truly remarkable. The museum's exhibits range from Ice Age specimens to animals more recently introduced into the Yukon. Also, included are exotic animals from both the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Alaska and the Yukon, as well as from around the world.

Also at Caribou Crossing are the lovable Huskies preparing for the Yukon Quest dog sled race. Pet the dogs and play with puppies, and hear the musher's adventures of dog sledding in the Yukon during the winter! As you journey back to Skagway, keep your eye out for possible wildlife sightings, such as bears, moose, caribou, Dall sheep and mountain goats.

Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Chrissy, August 2016

Our tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was Brook, and she made sure to not only tell us a ton of information about the landscape, the local culture, and the history, but she made it very personal too by telling us a bit about her move to Alaska and how different it is to actually live there. She gave us a ton of wonderful recommendations about where to find certain things around town as well!
She stopped at so many wonderful spots and made sure you not only knew a lot of great information, but that you got great photos to remember your trip as well!
I will say that I was super excited to do the dog sled ride, but it was not what I expected... I wish I had just spent more time in the puppy and retired dog area. The ride itself was only about 10 minutes if that, and we got a little extra presentation and information about dog sledding. Not sure if it was worth it, but we had a great time!

We had Brooke as a tour guide. She had a lot of energy and knowledge of the area. The scenery was beautiful. Would highly recommend.
