Upon departing the dock in Skagway, guests will enjoy a town tour of historic Skagway. It is about a 40 minute drive from Skagway to the shores of Summit Lake. Along the way, we'll enjoy spectacular views of the Denver Glacier, the White Pass, and the numerous snow-capped peaks.
After arriving at Summit Lake, we'll take a short walk to where your 31-foot, motor assisted voyageur canoes are waiting. These large canoes are similar to the ones used by trappers and prospectors during the gold rush era. After a short safety talk and paddling instruction, we'll launch out onto the water. The rocky landscape of coves and islets make for stunning paddling in a pristine setting. If guests are feeling tired, or the winds pick up, there is a small motor on the canoes to assist. Explore narrow channels and stop off in a remote spot for a closer look around. After a short break, board the large canoes and explore more of the aquamarine colored waters of Summit Lake. After about 1.5 hours on the water, return to the van or bus and head back to Skagway.
