A great tour beyond the White Pass with good wildlife sighting opportunities! Bonus stop at Yukon Suspension bridge for views, gift shop, snack bar and modern restroom. (Crossing of bridge is NOT included and time will not allow adding crossing to our stop there).
Follow in the path of the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders of 1898 as you travel up the Klondike Highway, past magnificent waterfalls and steep mountains of coastal rainforest. See views of the WP&YR railroad, Brackett Wagon road, Pitchfork Falls and Moore Creek Bridge. As we cross the 3292 foot summit of the White Pass and the Canadian Border we enter the subarctic alpine tundra of the "Tormented" valley with its crystal blue Summit Lake.
We'll continue on the journey through spectacular scenery in Canada of dramatic lakes and the Northern Boreal forest wilderness. Stand at the shores of Lakes Tutshi and Tagish, encircled by mile-high mountains and pose at the Yukon Border sign for a great photo-op.
The Yukon is always our best opportunity to encounter wildlife, so we'll be watching for bears, moose, sheep, goats and more!
