    Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition

    High-flying adventure meets Alaskan coastal rainforest on the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition. There's a reason why this is one of the top must-do activities in Skagway on TripAdvisor. This 4-hour adventure has something for both nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike, and the Skagway zipline tour is arguably one of the most renowned ziplining tours along the Alaskan cruise route because of its picturesque, natural setting amongst massive spruce and cedars. 11 ziplining stations take you high in the canopy with views over glacially fed waterfalls and mountainous rainforests. Go fast and go far as you fly up to 45 miles per hour on cables up to 2 football fields long! 4 beautiful, ultramodern suspension bridges cross over this rugged landscape and provide the perfect platform for memorable photos!

    Bennett Lake Scenic Journey

    This is a unique Skagway train experience, taking you further along the route than the majority of the train tours departing from Skagway. Whereas many round-trip White Pass railroad experiences climb to the top of White Pass summit and turn around, this excursion explores Canada's Yukon Territory. Coupled with a guided bus tour, enjoy the scenery from 2 different perspectives with fully narrated history along the way. Add all the features of the normal White Pass railroad excursions with a Yukon experience to see more scenery, reach a little further off the beaten path and get different perspective on the return trip back to Skagway. This is an exclusive Skagway train tour offered once a day and has limited seating so advanced reservations are recommended.

    Yukon Discovery

    One of the best Skagway tours, this one delivers a superb combination of scenery and wildlife opportunities. The Yukon Discovery is a full-day, guided trip from Skagway into Canada’s Yukon Territory. Starting right outside the dock, climb north in a comfortable mini-coach, gaining almost 3,000 ft. up and over the White Pass summit and entering first British Columbia and then Yukon Territory. It’s not uncommon to see moose, caribou, sheep or bears along the remote Klondike Highway. Stopping in Carcross, Yukon provides time to visit with husky dog teams and the cute puppies as well. After lunch, continue on to Emerald Lake which is a spectacular sight – you might have to convince your friends and family that you didn’t Photoshop the pictures.

    Yukon Discovery & Sled Dog

Once you arrive in the Yukon, a lunch break with free time provides the opportunity to not only visit with the husky puppies, but to experience what it’s like being pulled by a team of these elite runners. The local mushers, who are professional racers in the winter, share stories about what it’s like training, caring for and racing up to 90 dogs at a time!
