Yukon Dog Sledding & Musher's Camp Excursion from Skagway

Departing from Skagway's glacially carved coastline, you will ride over the coastal mountain range through the White Pass Summit Area known as the Tormented Valley. Here begins the adventure of a lifetime: the Yukon Dog Musher Adventure Tour in Skagway.

Making your way across the northwest corner of British Columbia and into the southwest corner of the Yukon, you will savor majestic mountain vistas, pristine lakes, and crisp, clean air. A photo stop will be made at Emerald Lake before traveling on to Caribou Crossing Trading Post and Museum. During this tour, you can relax and enjoy a tasty Yukon-style lunch, visit one of the most spectacular wildlife museums in North America, and visit a dog musher's camp. The museum's exhibits range from Ice Age specimens to animals more recently introduced into the Yukon. Also included are exotic animals from both the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Alaska and the Yukon, as well as from around the world.

The highlight of this Skagway excursion may be your visit to the mushing camp at Caribou Crossing, where mushers train their dogs for the world's toughest dog sled race, the "Yukon Quest." You will spend 30 minutes in the camp - double the time allotted to most other tours! Your time in the camp includes a 20-minute presentation on the art of mushing, including how they train in the summer without snow, followed by a five to six-minute ride with an experienced dog sled musher over cut trails in a dog cart pulled by racing huskies. There will also be time to play with the puppies, so do not forget your camera. All too soon it is time to begin the approximate two-hour drive back to Skagway.
