Join experienced guides on an exciting hiking adventure through the Tongass Rainforest that will immerse you in the incredible beauty of Southeast Alaska. Your adventure begins with a guided driving town tour of Skagway that continues up the White Pass on the Klondike Highway. Along the way your guide will regale you with the history of the Klondike Gold Rush and the natural history of the area. From the trailhead, you’ll spend the next 2 hours hiking through the beautiful alpine forest surrounded by the towering snowcapped mountains of the White Pass.
Your naturalist guides will stop frequently along the way to share their knowledge about the native flora, fauna, and to describe the amazing glacial history of Alaska. Each group is outfitted with binoculars to maximize your opportunities to see up-close the spectacular mountain and river scenery. Midway through the hike you’ll be treated to a delicious snack at the final breathtaking overlook with incredible views of the Skagway valley, White Pass, and the Lynn Canal. This is a great active family experience. Bring your camera!
