Looking to experience the pristine beauty of Alaskan wilderness up-close and personal? The Skagway Triple Adventure gives you three unforgettable adventures in one! You’ll bike, hike, and take a tranquil downriver float while following in the footsteps of historic gold rushers! First you’ll explore the famous gold rush town of Dyea, once occupied by some 10,000 hopeful prospectors. Then hop on a bike for five miles of easy trail-pedaling through lush rainforest and stunning meadows. For the next stage of your journey, your guide will lead you on a two-mile hike along the Chilkoot Trail, the very path used by stampeders at the height of the 1898 Klondike gold rush. The trek finishes at the banks of the Taiya River, where your rafting experience begins! After all your hard work, simply lie back in a comfortable rubber raft and drift through breathtaking waters, watching for bald eagles diving for fish or for a glimpse of playful river otters sliding off the banks as you pass by incredible vistas of towering forests and snow-capped mountains. For the active outdoor-lover, the Skagway Triple Adventure is among our must-do Skagway Alaska tours.

This small-group tour, led by friendly and informative professional guides, takes you far away from crowds and off the beaten path for an exceptional wilderness experience. Transportation is provided: Guests are transferred by van from Skagway to the Dyea historic site and back from the Taiya River. The Skagway Triple Adventure falls among moderate to strenuous Skagway Alaska tours in terms of physical activity. The most challenging section is the first mile of the Chilkoot Trail hike, which goes up and down over uneven terrain. For the rafting section of the tour, all participants are outfitted with rubber boots and a life jacket. (Note: there are no white-water sections). A guest favorite among Skagway Alaska tours, the superbly-rated Skagway Triple Experience is your opportunity to see the scenic Skagway region from three totally different perspectives and is not to be missed!

    Great quiet tripThis tour is a great way to get away from all the noise and jewelry stores in cruise ports.

    We have done this excursion on our last two cruises to Alaska, and both experiences were great.

    The bike ride is not strenuous, and the bikes provided are well maintained with modern gear (disk brakes, and quick shifters). Helmets were also provided and mandatory for all riders.

    Each of our tour guides each year focused on some different stops and points along the way so we learned a little more about Dyea on each trip. Both times we saw other people on horseback, but I felt that the bikes were a nice quick way to get around the area. Neat to see how the river and forest have changed and taken over the historic "townsite".

    After the bike ride, you are introduced to your next tour guide and begin the hike and float portion. The first half of the hike has some difficult spots, but the second half is a peaceful walk along in the Alaskan Rainforest. This is a remote area, if you feel you want a jacket or water for the raft ride, you need to have brought it with you and carry it along for the hike.

    I'm still not sure how they get the boots and the raft to the launch point, I think they drive along the other side of the Taiya River and get them across.

    Both of our guides (Bob in 2016 and Sam in 2018) were currently local to the area and knew a lot about the plants, fungus, lichen and life cycle of the Alaskan rainforest. They provided so much information with enthusiasm, it is hard to believe that they do this so many times over the summer and keep up the enthusiasm.

    Great tour, and great guides for all parts of this tour!

    When multiple groups are leaving at a similar time, it would be nice if they had some way to group the people by ability as our group was struggling with people wanting to go faster, and others who were having a difficult time keeping up. The guide did a great of managing this, but this is the only thing I could see changing to improve our experience!

    Great job!

    A real adventureJust a terrific adventure into the backcountry and forest with lots of photo ops! The hike was not only beautiful but challenging as well. The guide had a passion for the area and provided a lot of historical information, including "plant communication". A good experience well worth the money!!!

    InterestingWe should have read the information better. We did not realize the biking was not in the town area but out in the woods in a forgotten, non-existent town. That being said, it was very informative and a fine 6-mile ride. The hike, also in the woods as well as up and over a hillside, was informative but not exactly what we thought it would be. The river rafting was fun and entertaining. Our guide was very bubbly and knowledgeable about lichen.

    StellarThe bike trip was great. We had a small group and the pace worked well. Our guide, Shannon, was energetic, friendly and knowledgeable. We were handed over to Brooke for the hike and raft. Brooke was extremely knowledgeable about the plant life and kept a good pace on the hike (which is hard to find on other hikes we have done). She answered the questions from the group but was good about letting us in the back of the group enjoy the peace and solitude. The raft was great other than it was a little short for the beautiful day that we had. This was extremely enjoyable and would recommend this to anyone who wants to see nature away from the hustle and bustle of Skagway.

    RelaxingThe bike leg was perfect. Madi provided a nice pace and was very enthusiastic. It is her first season, but she was well versed in her knowledge of the area.
    The next leg was the 2 mile hike. Our guide, Bob, was an eccentric man who truly loves his "backyard". He showed a lot of concern for those who may have troubles on the more strenuous part of the trail. He was sure to point out all dangers and a wide variety of plants.
    The final leg was the boat float. Bob was again our guide, and you could tell this wasn't his first time down the river!
    The only negative comment I have - there should have been some drinking water at the end of the hike, but there wasn't. I recommend the tour company add this for future guests.
    Aside from that, it was a most enjoyable day off the ship. I'd do it again.
