The Skagway Triple Adventure is the ultimate Alaska outdoor experience! You’ll bike through the coastal temperate rainforest onto the tidal flats, hike a portion of the historic Chilkoot Trail, then float down the glacial-fed Taiya River on a relaxing raft journey. You’ll get to do it all on this one excursion! This amazing tour starts with a 25 minute narrated van ride to the historic Taiya River Valley. Once home to 10,000 stampeders, nature has now reclaimed the land.
Your guides escort you on five miles of easy pedaling on flat dirt roads with stops at historic and natural sites. Search for eagles and view colorful wildflowers while enjoying beautiful mountain vistas. Enjoy a snack at the end of your biking segment then begin your two mile hike on the Chilkoot Trail. You will retrace the steps of the Gold Rush stampeders hiking through a green moss-covered northern temperate rainforest. At the end of the one-way hike, you’ll meet up with your raft guide for a relaxing river float on the tranquil Taiya River.
