Escape the hustle and bustle of port and come discover Alaska just as the pioneers did!
If you're looking to experience the mesmerizing landscape of Skagway up-close-and-personal, there is no better way to do so than on horseback. Your knowledgeable guides will entertain and inform you and the Alaskan wilderness will inspire you!
Your tour begins with a historic tour of Skagway and its majestic coastline. Upon arrival at a ranch in Dyea, you'll receive a safety briefing from your expert guides and then you'll be ready to hop on your very own horse, with help from your guides, of course!
You'll ride along the famous Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Your knowledgeable guides will first take you through the rain forest, while they share entertaining stories about the crazed gold rush that struck this region many years ago. You'll see remnants of what was once a booming gold rush town of 10,000. You'll then emerge from the rain forest and ride to the Dyea tidal flats, where you'll be surrounded by mountains, streams, Alaskan wildflowers, and the Lynn Canal. A favorite spot among locals for wildlife viewing, the natual beauty of this Alaskan landscape is breathtaking.
Upon completion of the horseback riding portion of your tour, you'll be able to relax around a firepit with your guides. You'll then enjoy a scenic ride back into town.
