For crossing the Canadian border

The drive from Skagway Alaska up and over White Pass into the grandeur and beauty of British Columbia’s alpine landscape is one of the world’s greatest scenic journeys. The Yukoner Half-Day Tour, which passes along the Klondike Highway through wilderness dotted with crystal-clear glacial lakes, includes all the scenic wonders of the White Pass Summit Tour but ventures even further into British Columbia, taking you right up to the Yukon border. Follow in the footsteps of the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders of 1898, but in comfort, as you cross the 3292-foot summit of White Pass into the subarctic alpine tundra of Canada’s stunning Tormented Valley. Towering peaks, dramatic alpine lakes, and wildlife often come into sight as the drive continues through the Northern Boreal Forest wilderness and along the shores of Lakes Tutshi and Tagish. Along the way, your guide will fill you in on local history until your 50-mile journey inland reaches the Yukon border. After a photo opportunity beside the famous sign, get your binoculars ready for the return journey so you don’t miss a thing!

The Yukoner Half-Day Tour packs a lot of punch in just 4 hours. This 100-mile round trip is a relaxing way to experience a taste of the Alaskan and Canadian wilderness, see some amazing wildlife, and learn about the history of the region. You’ll even stop at the famous Yukon Suspension Bridge! With two departures daily from the cruise docks in Skagway Alaska, you’ll have the opportunity to either fit another excursion into your day or simply spend time before or after exploring charming Skagway at your own pace.

    What type of vehicles are used?

    Answer: For this particular tour comfortable custom mini-coaches are provided, with a 14-to-28 passenger capacity. All feature large touring windows, bucket seats and PA systems for the guide to communicate along the way.

    Are there photo opportunities?

    Answer: Yes! There are opportunities and pull-outs along the way to get off the bus and take pictures.

    Will we see wildlife?

    Answer: Typically, trips to the Yukon have the highest occurrence of wildlife sightings. This particular tour has a better chance of wildlife than the White Pass Summit tour, but not as strong trips that continue into the Yukon, such as the Yukon Discovery Tour.

    Why are passports required for this tour?

    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. This only applies to USA or Canada citizenship that they can use the birth certificate. Any other nationality would need Passport for all ages. 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.

    How have Candian border & Covid-19 restrictions affected this tour?

    Answer: All passengers must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. Bring your proof of Covid-19 vaccinations. Also required is your ArriveCAN submission receipt (either paper copy or screenshot on your phone-there is no internet at the border crossing to pull up information online). ArriveCAN is required for cruise ship embarkation so you will complete this in the 72 hours before your ship departure. This submission is also good for our tour day in Skagway. For 2022 we will be following CDC and cruise line guidance regarding masks and vaccination. Travelers must be vaccinated against Covid-19 as per cruise line requirements. Masks are highly recommended while in the bus, but we are not able to enforce the wearing of masks since guidelines have changed in recent months. We ask you to please be flexible and considerate with any potential requirements needed to accommodate group travel at this time. Guidelines could change during the cruise ship season.
