For More Information

7 Days/Week: 9-5pm (Alaska Time)

With some of the world’s most stunning scenery around every bend, it’s no wonder the historic White Pass journey from Skagway to Canada’s Yukon Territory has been called one of the world’s great short road trips, or that it’s one of the most sought-after Skagway shore tours! There are many Skagway excursions going up to White Pass Summit and back, but this 7-Hour extended Emerald Lake tour, one of our exclusive private group tours Skagway, is a comprehensive day trip offering much, much more. On this Skagway vehicle tour, you’ll have your own private guide and vehicle for an adventure into Yukon Territory to Carcross. With this exlusive private option, you’ll enjoy stops whenever you want. The journey, which takes place a private coach, travels the entire 67-mile White Pass route, parelleling the path of the Yukon Railroad, and passes snow-capped peaks, towering forests, crystal lakes, and cascading waterfalls. What’s more, it follows the same route that the Klondike stampeders did during the gold rush of 1898! Stops at Emerald Lake, Carcross, and the Yukon’s spectacular Southern Lakes Region are highlights of the unforgettable Private Emerald Lake Tour. Don’t miss out on this favorite among private group tours Skagway!

The White Pass/ Yukon journey is simply a must-do activity when visiting Skagway, and the exclusive Private Emerald Lake Tour is the best option to not only enjoy the historic scenic journey, but also explore more of the Yukon Territory accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide, setting your own pace for the journey. You’ll enjoy a hearty lunch and refreshments at a historic station by the shores of Lake Bennett before heading toward Carcross and then your guided return journey via the Klondike Highway. This exclusive full-day excursion is limited to a maximum of 14 people, so, as for other private group tours Skagway, advance bookings are recommended.

      Why are passports required?

      Answer: This tour enters Canada’s Yukon Territory and passports will be required to go through the Canadian customs post, as well as to re-enter the United States. Passports are required for all adults and children 16 or older. Children 15 and under should have an original or certified copy or birth certificate or a Passport. If one or both parents are not traveling with the child, a notarized letter of authorization from the absent parent(s) is also necessary to cross into Canada. Some nationalities may also require a Canada and/or USA Visa. (Single-entry is acceptable). Please bring all original documentation, no copies are allowed. If passengers show up for the tour without the proper ID, they will not be allowed to board. While we will attempt to accommodate passengers lacking identification, there is no guarantee that suitable arrangements can be made, and no refund will be given under these circumstances. Passengers with felonies, DUI, or criminal charges are not allowed entry into Canada.

      Will we make it back to the ship in time? What if we don't?

      Answer: We've never left anyone behind and only schedule tours that work well with your cruise ship's itinerary. We leave plenty of cushion so you can confidently book your trips independently.

      What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?

      Answer: It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases, we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.

      Is transportation included? Where is the meeting location for this tour?

      Answer: Round-trip transportation is included with this trip right from your cruise ship. The guides will meet you right at the end of your specific cruise ship and you will be returned to the cruise ship at the end of the tour. If booking online, you will receive a confirmation email and voucher with complete instructions immediately upon booking.

      Our ship arrives at 7:00 a.m. - do we have time to make the 7:30 a.m. departure?

      Answer: Yes! In many ways, the 7:30 a.m. departure is geared towards guests arriving at 7:00 a.m. Just be prepared to disembark early or on time and there shouldn't be any problems joining the 7:30 a.m. departure.

      How much is this tour per person?

      Answer: This tour has no per person rate. It has a base rate of $875.00, regardless of group size, and an additional $140.00 will be levied for groups larger than 8 people to cover a larger vehicle.

      What kinds of customizations are available for private tours?

      Answer: To add hiking or dogsledding to this tour, see the 'Private Emerald Lake & Dogsled Tour' or 'Private Emerald Lake & Hiking Tour.'

      Do you pick up at the ship?

      Answer: Yes, we will pick you up and drop you off at your ship, or any where that we agree to meet!

      Will we see wildlife?

      Answer: For wildlife sightings such as bear, moose, mountain goats and others, the Yukon is your best bet. About 50% of our Yukon excursions see some type of wildlife. Short of hiring a cousin to dress up in costume, we can not guarantee you’ll see wildlife, and yet, we often do!
