One of the best Alaska cruise tours for adventure-lovers in search of glorious mountain vistas, the brand-new Skagway Glacier 4×4 Adventure is an exclusive ATV tour that takes travelers into the gorgeous wilds near Skagway. You’ll travel up high to the peaks of a remote range and visit a hidden Skagway glacier nestled above a stunning bright-blue meltwater lake where you’ll have time to explore and take in the glory. Keep your eyes peeled as your expert guide drives your ATV up toward the heights, as caribou, brown bear, and Dall sheep sightings are common. You’ll cover six miles of stunning landscapes, passing across wild tundra and through ancient old-growth forest. Not to mention the glacial lakes and snow-capped peaks that will frame your journey! The highlight of many a visitor’s outing is the traverse across a high alpine ridgeline high above famous Lake Bennett. Other guests, though, cite calving chunks of massive glacier ice as their most memorable moment! Whichever piece of the journey most inspires you, this one-of-a-kind Skagway glacier adventure — surely one of the best Alaska cruise tours for nature-lovers — is sure to leave you with fond memories and lovely photos!
This adventure extravaganza begins with pick-up from the Skagway cruise docks. From here, you’ll move toward the 4×4 base, just across the border in beautiful British Columbia. Your highly knowledgeable local guide will give you an intro to the area before striking out with your group into the wilderness. You’ll board a brand-new 4×4 ATV and start off toward Paddy’s Peak, a stunning and secluded feature that few outsiders have laid eyes on! Hold on tight and prepare yourself for the view as you make your way around the final turn, as soon you’ll find yourself in a field of fireweed beside a cascading alpine glacier! With views of Paddy’s Peak, tantalizing tundra, and sky-scraping Alaskan ranges, you’ll see for yourself why we’re confident not only in calling this unique tour one of the best Alaska cruise tours for adventurous souls, but also one of the all-around best Alaska cruise tours out of Skagway!
