it was incredible.. the best excursion we took on our Alaskan Cruise.. our tour guide was Brook.. very informed and very entertaining.. the stops were beautiful, as were just looking out the window as we drove thru.. Any question we asked, she knew the answer.. I tried to review this excursion before, but for some reason it never took.. was disappointed because really wanted to let you know this was one of the highlights of our trip.. the price was good too

what to expect

The White Pass was a route that was used in 1898 during the Gold Rush by those seeking fortune and you will discover this famous trail on your half-day tour to the Yukon border. After your ship docks in Skagway, you'll head out up the Klondike Highway by mini-bus, beholding impressive scenery as you go, from the breathtaking coastal mountain ranges to the stunning waterfalls. Travel past local landmarks such as WP&YR railroad route,  Pitchfork Falls and Moore Creek Bridge; then climb to the 3292-foot (1003-meter) White Pass summit and enter into Canada and the "Tormented" Valley, a subarctic alpine tundra.

As you journey through northern British Columbia Canada, keep an eye out for native wildlife -- you may spot moose, bears, birds, sheep, mountain goats or Dall sheep.  While in the Northern Boreal Forest, you'll stop at Lake Tutshi and Windy Arm of Tagish Lake, which are surrounded mile-high mountains. Lastly, take a photo at the Yukon Border sign for memorable photo souvenir.

Also included is a bonus short stop at the Yukon Suspension Bridge facility for use of their modern restroom, gift shop, snack bar and view of bridge from overlook deck.  (There will not be time during the stop to add the crossing of the bridge. This is a view and comfort stop only)
