Yukon Discovery Tour
Our best value! Experience the most for your day with our 6-hour adventure into the Yukon Territory of Canada!
First we climb the mountainous Klondike Highway driving north to the US/Canadian border, paralleling the 1898 Gold Rush Trail to the White Pass summit at 3292 feet. Along the way view coastal rainforest, magnificent waterfalls, glaciers, and snow capped peaks. We make multiple stops at scenic views like Pitchfork Falls, Moore Creek bridge, Welcome to Alaska sign, Summit Lake and Tormented Valley.
Once in Canada, we journey through spectacular scenery of dramatic lakes encircled by mile-high mountains and the Northern Boreal forest wilderness. Stunning Tutshi and Tagish Lakes, the Welcome to the Yukon sign and Bove Island viewpoints are all great photo stops. In Carcross, stand on the shores of historic Lake Bennett, see the "World's Smallest Desert" and marvel at the gorgeous green Emerald Lake. We watch for wildlife (including Bears, Moose, Caribou, Dall Sheep and Mountain Goats) all along our route. For lunch, we stop at Caribou Crossing where you'll see the North's premier educational wildlife gallery, featuring over 100 Yukon and Ice Age taxidermy animals, including the world's largest mounted polar bear. There is a Yukon gift shop for souvenirs. Lunch is delicious BBQ chicken, baked potato, coleslaw, homemade bun, coffee or tea, and yummy donuts. (Vegetarian option of lentil curry available). You'll also visit the Sled Dog camp, where you can pet the husky dogs and play with the puppies!
This tour is our most complete for an economical price. There is world class scenery around every turn that you'll never forget.
