This tour is a 65 mile journey into the Yukon! Climb aboard a deluxe motorcoach and experience the magic and the mystery of the famed Yukon Territory. Your adventure begins on the docks of Skagway, but soon you’ll be climbing the South Klondike Highway to the top of the White Pass 3,292 feet above sea level. Majestic peaks, waterfalls, and glaciers can all be experienced and enjoyed on this incredible drive. Leaving the White Pass and the USA behind, you’ll enter Canada and the unspoiled and untamed beauty of the Yukon Territory. Marvel at the chain of lakes that form the headwaters of the Yukon River, explore the rustic town of Caribou Crossing “Carcross”, snap a quick photo of the world’s smallest desert and enjoy the tales of the Klondike Gold rush provided by your guide throughout your journey.
A stop at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post is an opportunity to satisfy your wilderness appetite with a delicious chicken barbecue lunch complete with all-you-can-eat homemade donuts. After your meal, tour the Yukon's most extensive Wildlife Museum and then on to the Dog Musher’s Village where you can visit with Iditarod dog mushers and take pictures with the sled dogs and husky puppies or, for an extra fee, join them for a dog cart ride with the actual Iditarod and Yukon Quest dogs. Kids and adults alike will also enjoy the petting farm. Once back at Fraser, British Columbia, you’ll board the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad for a truly unforgettable ride on this historic and breathtaking narrow gauge railroad.
Note: All guests must carry a valid passport as this tour will be crossing both U.S and Canadian borders. less

Travel by deluxe jet boat and explore the very best of the Tracy Arm wilderness area, including exciting close up views of the majestic Sawyer Glaciers. Relax in the warm, spacious cabin as your experienced Captain guides you through scenic passages and into the heart of a place that has, until recently, been buried for centuries by glacial ice. The maneuverability of the Katlian Express allows you to glide quietly past curious seals and icebergs and get as close as possible to the face of South Sawyer Glacier. Be sure to spend time on the topside observation deck where you'll be able to enjoy this unforgettable experience with all your senses. You might even feel "white thunder", as immense spires of ice break from the glacier and crash into the sea.
Before departing the head of Tracy Arm you’ll also view beautiful North Sawyer Glacier. While exploring the full length of this ice carved fjord, you'll cruise beneath cliffs that rise 4000 feet above the jade colored sea. And you can even feel the mist on your face as the vessel maneuvers almost directly under a plunging waterfall. There will be frequent stops to view wildlife, such as bald eagles, harbor seals and mountain goats, and encounters with bears and whales are not uncommon. Throughout the voyage, your onboard naturalist will provide a wealth of information about the area, which naturalist John Muir called "one of the most dramatically stunning fjords in Alaska". You'll also enjoy a picnic style dinner and a variety of complimentary snacks and beverages, served by your friendly Alaskan crew as you trace the rugged shores of Stephens Passage on the cruise north to Juneau. The vessel is equipped with deluxe seating, a snack bar and restroom.
Note: Participants must be able to negotiate 4 to 5 steps and walk a short distance with minor assistance. We recommend participants bring a warm jacket, hat and gloves to wear on the observation deck. In the event that unpredictable and ever changing ice conditions preclude the vessel from entering the upper reaches of Tracy Arm Fjord, the tour will be modified to explore Endicott Arm, an adjacent fjord and tidewater glacier of equal beauty. Due to diminishing daylight and ice conditions, this tour is not available in early May and September. This tour is only offered on the Norwegian Pearl. less
