Travel the route of the Trail of '98 from behind the wheel of a comfortable and spacious Hummer® H3 SUV.


This limited, exclusive excursion will allow you to enjoy the scenery and history of the Klondike Gold Rush at a leisurely pace. Your small group of explorers will set out in comfort on an adventure from Skagway into the Yukon Territory via the famous routes taken by the hardy gold prospectors in the late 1800's. You'll be driving your Hummer® into the heart of the rugged wilderness made famous by fabled gold rush legends Robert Service and Jack London.


Your experienced tour guide, in the lead vehicle, will entertain you with tales of the gold rush era via an interactive, two-way radio system. Driving your own Hummer® provides you the freedom, comfort and relaxation of exploring the Klondike Gold Rush routes from a bygone era in an intimate way.


This adventure allows you to experience the beauty of Skagway and the Yukon Territory away from the crowds. Your guide will lead your caravan to destinations such as Pitchfork Falls, Moore Bridge, Dead Horse Gulch, Bracket Wagon Trail, and Tormented Valley.


Additionally, you will visit the historic village of Carcross, named after the narrow Caribou crossing at the headwaters of the mighty Yukon River. After a short break, your caravan will travel to The World’s Smallest Desert, and finally, the highlight of this adventure, Emerald Lake, known for its vivid turquoise water. You will also enjoy an Alaskan style snack prior to hearing the story of Jefferson Randolph “Soapy” Smith, Skagway’s most notorious outlaw, on your return trip to Skagway. Snack consists of reindeer sausage, cheese, crackers, mints and bottled water.
