Create an experience that includes whatever you want to do. Select from a menu of options and add your own personal touches – all enjoyed from the comfort and elegance of a luxuriously appointed Hummer®, and upscale service for the perfect Alaska experience.
You could tour the charming town of Skagway and visit the Gold Rush Cemetery, where one of the most notorious con men in history, "Soapy Smith," is buried. You can opt to travel on the Klondike Highway - the route of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush – to the summit and beyond into the Yukon. Photo stops abound including Pitch Fork Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, the historic gold rush supply center of Carcross and the world's smallest desert, measuring one square mile. Culminate your journey at the perfect turnaround point, Emerald Lake, notable for its intense green color.
Or you could chose to head to the Skagway Overlook, for a fantastic view of the city and your cruise ship. Then take the scenic drive to the Dyea, located within the Klondike National Historical Park, and the starting point of the famous Chilkoot Trail. Spanning diverse ecosystems from subarctic to coastal, you can experience wild Alaska, with possible bear and bald eagle sightings.
You'll be briefed on a variety of available venues and you can do as much, or as little, as you like. Popular sites include Liarsville Trail Camp and Salmon Bake, the Skagway Museum and Archives, Red Onion Saloon Brothel Museum, Jewell Gardens and Yukon Suspension Bridge.
In addition to being your driver and tour escort, your chauffeur/guide is at your beck and call. Think of him as your personal concierge.
