Private Yukon 4x4 Wilderness AdventureExplore > United States > Skagway > Private Yukon 4x4 Wilderness Adventure
This ultimate adventure allows everyone to relax and enjoy the incredible vistas and history.
This tour includes:
- A scenic drive into Yukon Territory in a private 4x4
- Time for souvenir shopping
- Lots of great wildlife viewing and photo opportunities!
This exclusive private tour parallels the Trail of '98 over the White Pass into Canada. You'll follow in the footsteps of 20,000 stampeders who set out to find their fortunes after gold was discovered in 1896.
Unlike the huge movement of prospectors, your group will be private and your vehicle quite comfortable. Your Ford Excursion will take you traveling from Skagway on the Alaska side of the coastal mountains into the rugged Yukon Territory. Soon you'll be immersed in the glory days of the gold rush and its adventures.
Wildlife sightings are common along the route. Keep an eye out for bear, mountain goats, caribou, moose, and other critters. As you travel into the Yukon, you'll see the crystal lakes Bennett, Tutshi, and Tagish. You'll make a stop in the small village of Carcross to visit and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two. Brilliant green Emerald Lake is a great photo stop.
For the tour highlight, you'll see Mother Nature at her best as you climb an off-the-beaten path road that leads to magnificent panoramic vistas of scenery few visitors here ever see. At the top of Jubilee mountain you will feel the solitude of the north and enjoy lunch at a small bistro for some Yukon grub.
As you'll be crossing the Canadian border, please make sure you bring your passport.
