I am considering booking the Yukon/White Pass Summit Excursion with the Skagway Tour Company because I'm hoping the times they offer will work better with our schedule than similar tours offered by the cruiseline. It's a bus tour that includes a historical tour of Skagway and ride to the summit and then 55 miles into Yukon territory, including Carcross and views of Emerald Lake. I liked the sound of this one because it's mostly history and scenery, without the gold panning/Liarsville stuff, which I think sounds a little cheesy.
Any thoughts? Has anyone used this company or taken this tour?
I just got some more info from the company .... they are no longer offering the tour I was interested in. But they are still offerning a shorter one that includes the historical Skagway tour and a drive to the Yukon border.
Any suggestions for other companies that offer tours of Skagway and then into the Yukon territory?
If you are interested in seeing Emerald Lake - renting a car might be an idea. If you are interested in out door recreation - Southeast Tours offers a tour - Yukon Horseback Riding Adventure. You will see Emerald Lake - from the hilltops back of Emerald Lake. You get a narrated tour into the Yukon, see Emerald Lake and a horseback wilderness tour and a chance to rest, have a snack and chat with the guides. I took that tour and it was wonderful.
