What to expect and what not to expect with this Skagway shore excursion

You won't see this tour offered through the cruise lines. This is an exclusive private tour with a knowledgeable, local guide. Allowing ample time for photo opportunities, lunch, and any additional extras that you might want to do, the 7-hour tour departs from Skagway and follows the Klondike Highway north to Yukon. Your guide narrates the journey and you are in complete control of this totally customized and private experience.

  • Exclusive tour - just your group and a local guide
  • Dock-to-dock transportation
  • 7 hours duration
  • PASSPORTS REQUIRED

We prefer to get an early start to this tour so we're first on the road. This allows us to beat the crowds and gives us the best opportunity for wildlife viewing. If you have specific requests, just let us know - it's your tour! Note: To add a dogsledding or hiking adventure to this excursion, see the brand-new Private Emerald Lake and Dogsledding Tour or Private Emerald Lake and Hiking Tour.

Minimum Ages, Cancellations, Accessibility, Etc.

SKAGWAY TOURS DETAILS:

  • Minimum Age: There is no minimum age to participate on this tour. Car seats are available by request for younger children.

You've got questions, we've got answers
Q:What kinds of customizations are available for private tours?
Q:Do you pick up at the ship?
Yes, we will pick you up and drop you off at your ship, or any where that we agree to meet!
Q:What should I bring?
Passports are REQUIRED for border crossing into Canada, only 15 miles north of Skagway. For some nationalities, additional documentation may be required. Children accompanying parents should have an original or certified copy of their birth certificate or Passport. If one or both parents are not traveling with the child, a notarized letter of authorization from the absent parent(s) is also necessary to cross into Canada.

Bring your camera. Binoculars are optional, as these are provided for you on the tour.
Q:Will we see wildlife?
For wildlife sightings such as bear, moose, mountain goats and others, the Yukon is your best bet. About 50% of our Yukon excursions see some type of wildlife. Short of hiring a cousin to dress up in costume, we can not guarantee you’ll see wildlife, and yet, we often do!

Skagway Driving Tour

We hired a car for a six hour tour into the Yukon Territory. Our tour guide, Max, was a wonderful young man who was from Skagway. Max had a very good understanding of the area and showed us everything. We did not see wildlife but the scenery was spectacular. I would recommend this for anyone visiting Skagway. If you can get Max as your tour guide you will have a wonderful experience.

We so enjoyed our private tour with Max. He was hospitable, friendly, flexible and informative. We felt he went out of his way to be accommodating to our desires and offered suggestions that were helpful. We hope others will secure his services.

Skagway Private Tour

Max was an AWESOME tour guide!! He took our entire family on a private 4hour tour - we wanted to take our time and not be on a set schedule. This tour was perfect! Not only did we have great weather, but Max and his stories were so much fun! Plus - he is a great photographer with a lot of patience (he had to deal with 8 or 9 cameras at several stops!)

Excellent day!

We had such a super day with our tour guide. We explored and saw well beyond what we thought we would. The highlight was the bear and cubs along the side of the road. Thanks for a great day!
