To the Yukon and beyond! See what the Yukon REALLY has to offer on this amazing full day tour!
Head from sea level to 3300 ft in elevation, up over the White Pass Summit and into the subarctic alpine tundra of the Tormented Valley and into Canada.
Join Iditarod Musher Michelle Phillips at her stunning musher’s camp near Tutshi Lake. Enjoy a 1.5 mile dog sled ride where you will meet real Alaskan Huskies who take part in the world famous Iditarod and Yukon Quest. Visit with adorable husky puppies and enjoy some puppy play time while you learn about what it takes to race the Iditarod.
Pause for a great photo opportunity at the "Welcome to the Yukon" sign on the Edge of Tutshi Lake!
Visit the intensely green waters of Emerald Lake, one of the most photographed lakes in Northern Canada. Stop and play in the ancient glacial lake bed of the Carcross Desert, fondly known by locals as "the world's smallest desert."
Explore the community of Carcross, take in the local sights and enjoy the view from the edge of Bennet Lake before joining us for soup and a sandwich at the Spirit Lake Lodge.
There are so many scenic look outs to stop and take photos, your camera will be full of amazing memories by the time you return to Skagway.
A full day tour means more opportunities to look for wildlife. Keep an eye out for Black Bear, Grizzly Bears, Caribou, Moose, Lynx, Rabbits and Sheep on this incredible tour into Canada and back.
Please note, although there is a good chance to see Wild Life, we cannot guarantee sightings as we are looking for wild animals.
Soup & Sandwich Lunch, Entrance to the Musher's Camp and a 1.6mile Dog Sled ride included in Ticket Price. Please note the dogsledding is done on dirt, not snow, Yukon Summers are actually quite warm!
