Explore the majestic mountains, crystal-clear salmon streams, and wildflower-covered meadows of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park on horseback – just as the early Alaskan pioneers did! The Chilkoot Horseback Adventure is suitable for beginners, as well as more experienced horseback-riders, and is one of the best Skagway excursions for anyone wishing to experience spectacular and inspiring landscapes while exploring Alaska’s fascinating frontier history. As you amble along and get to know your trusty steed, your knowledgeable guides will regale you with tales from the Klondike Gold Rush, including the boom-and-bust saga of the once-thriving gold rush town of Dyea, which now lies abandoned. Your ride will take you through quiet rainforest, then along the wildflower-strewn fields of the Dyea flats, with panoramic views of distant snow-capped mountains. You’ll continue to the northern tip of Northern America’s longest and deepest fjord, the Lynn Canal. Watch eagles soaring effortlessly overhead, breathe in crisp mountain air, and enjoy a true Alaskan wilderness experience as you ride along on the Chilkoot Horseback Adventure.

Your Alaskan adventure begins with pick-up from the cruise docks and an entertaining historic tour of the charming town of Skagway, followed by a scenic coastal drive to a ranch in Dyea. Here you’ll meet your guides and horses, receive safety instructions, and be helped into the saddle of your horse for one hour and forty-five minutes of gentle riding through the spectacular beauty of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park. After the ride, enjoy refreshments and relax with your fellow riders and guides before boarding your transport back to Skagway. You’ll feel truly invigorated after your relaxing and inspiring Chilkoot Horseback Adventure, one of the Skagway excursions that happy customers can’t stop raving about!
