TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Skagway Shore Excursion

This Skagway shore trip allows you to explore off the beaten path Alaska. Your shore excursion includes a bike ride through the coastal temperate rainforest onto the tidal flats, a hike on the same Chilkoot Trail as the early gold-rush prospectors, and then a rafting journey down the glacial-fed Taiya river.

When you disembark your ship you will walk a few minutes to the meeting point in Skagway. From there your tour begins with a narrated drive to the historic site of Dyea. Once a famous goldrush town of 10,000 prospectors, now nature has reclaimed the land. Your guide will fit you with a bike and escort you for five miles of easy pedaling on flat dirt roads with stops at historic and nature sites. Search for eagles and view colorful wildflowers while enjoying the beautiful mountain vistas as you pedal along.

At the conclusion of the bike ride you meet your guide for the two mile hike on the historic Chilkoot Trail. The first mile is up and down over uneven terrain while the second mile is relatively flat. You stop often to learn about the area, take photos, and quench your thirst. The hike ends at the bank of the Taiya River where the rafting segment of your journey begins.

You are outfitted with rubber boots and a life jacket. The river has no whitewater. This relaxing float is the grand finale of your amazing outdoor experience. Watch for bald eagles diving for fish as you float along, or glimpse a river otter sliding off the bank.

At the conclusion of the raft trip you will return to Skagway by van.
