Yukoner: Half-Day Tour to Yukon

Sku: TT14

For More Information

Mon - Sun 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

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 such as bear, moose, eagles, and wild goats 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 3.5 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 have the opportunity to 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.

    Awesome Trip to the YukonThis was our third trip to Alaska and this was by far the best excursion we have had. The smaller group and knowledgeable guide made the trip. We had time to stop for pictures and to see many interesting sights. We saw so much more than taking the train as we did before. We will definitely use this tour group again and will tell everyone about them. An awesome day!

    Perfect tourOur guide, Mike, was so engaging, knowledgeable and funny! His commentary made the trip so entertaining. The sights were beautiful, the number of stops was just right and the weather cooperated. Loved the small group rather than being on a large tour bus. We would definitely use Alaska Shore Tours again, and request Mike as our guide!

    Yukon tripOur guide, Candice, was so delightful, knowledgeable and fun. It was a great day, we enjoyed the scenery and the company. We liked that it was a smaller group and not a really large bus where you are always waiting on people.

    Are there photo opportunities?

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

    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.

    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 technically leaves the U.S. borders and passports are required to re-enter the United States. Passports are required for all adults and children accompanying parents should have an original or certified copy of 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. Every passenger should be informed of the requirements on your confirmation form. If passengers show up for the tour without the proper ID, they will not be allowed to board.
