White Pass Summit and Yukon Suspension Bridge Shore Excursion

For this Skagway excursion, bring your camera to capture the breathtaking scenery of White Pass Summit, Yukon suspension bridge, and the surrounding area. Your journey begins as your guide picks you up in a comfortable vehicle for a quick tour of Skagway's historic district. This frontier mining town was a prime gateway for prospectors stampeding into Alaska to mine their fortunes during the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1890s.

Continue towards the Chilkoot Mountains and be surrounded by majestic, forest-studded mountain peaks and pristine blue lakes as you ascend into the White Pass Summit area. During this tour in Skagway, there will be many stops for you to enjoy the incredible views.

Arrive at the Yukon Suspension Bridge and embrace your bravery as you walk across the bridge for one-of-a-kind views and photos of the Tutshi River Canyon and the raging rapids 57 feet below you. Take advantage of the many benches on the surrounding platform to quietly soak in the views while you learn about the gold rush as well as the area's natural history then take a stroll amongst the alpine wildflowers gracing the boardwalk.

If time permits you will stop at the Yukon Gold Rush Cemetery and Lower Reid Falls on your way back to port. Walk through the small cemetery with its myriad tombstones and notable eternal residents such as Soapy Smith and Frank Reid. At Lower Reid Falls you can take a short nature walk to the base of the falls and be rewarded with the roaring thunder of more than 100 feet of cascading water. This 3-hour intimate Skagway tour is a must-do to make your Alaskan experience complete! Book now for an amazing time in White Pass Summit that you'll remember for years to come.
