  • A great historic sightseeing tour surrounded by some beautiful mountain scenery with a local expert
  • Get a real Alaskan wilderness experience and spot local wildlife like moose, bald eagles and seals
  • Snack on cookies and hot drinks, and stop for photos along the drive back to Skagway

Dress in layers and don't forget a spare pair of socks, you're going on an adventure! Immerse yourself in the vast natural beauty of the area as you take a scenic river float into the Alaskan wilderness, right back to its Gold Rush roots.

Scenic Skagway sits at the top of the Lynn Canal fjord, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and the lush Tongass National Forest.

After meeting your experienced raft guide at the pier, take a drive along the rugged coast of the fjord to the Dyea valley, an old Gold Rush settlement. Look for bald eagles or seals feeding near the shoreline as you head to the Chilkoot Trail. Here's where thousands of people once traveled, hungry for gold!

Next up, it's time to get your life jacket and rubber boots on for a float down the gentle Taiya River. Learn about the local history, hear stories from the Gold Rush and take in the jaw-dropping river and mountain views.

Feeling peckish? Munch on homemade cookies, hot cocoa and hot tea, all with dramatic views before heading back to Skagway. You'll stop to take photos along the way. Maybe this time you'll see a moose?
