Skagway is the only shore stopover on the Alaskan cruise route where you can head inland for a day of scenic discovery. Most popular Skagway shore excursions heading inland along the Klondike Highway only go as far as White Pass Summit, but the full-day Yukon Discovery tour takes you further into Canada to the legendary Yukon! Follow in the footsteps of the stampeders of the 1898 Gold Rush as they headed in their thousands from Skagway to seek their fortunes in the Yukon. These days, the Klondike Highway is one of the world’s great scenic drives, with stunning alpine scenery, tranquil mountain lakes, waterfalls and opportunities to view bears and other wildlife in their native habitat. Your Skagway excursion ends at the historic Gold Rush town of Carcross, and along the way you’ll stop at beautiful Emerald Lake and visit Caribou Crossing Trading Post where you’ll have the opportunity to view husky puppies, visit the animal petting farm, and spend time in the Yukon’s largest wildlife museum. Your local guide will be on hand at all times to answer your questions and provide information on all you are seeing and experiencing on your Yukon Discovery.
