Once a water-stop for the thirsty steam engines and rotary snowplows, Fraser, BC, is now the site of Canadian Customs and Immigration. Upon arrival at the train depot in Fraser, you'll be transferred to a comfortable tour vehicle as you continue your journey into the unparalleled beauty of the Yukon Territory.
Travel to Emerald Lake, Caribou Crossing, Carcross, and Lake Bennett. A piping hot BBQ lunch is included, as well as free admission to the Yukon Wildlife Museum. While at Caribou Crossing Trading Post, enjoy a visit to an authentic dogsled camp and pet the husky puppies!
This package also includes a 15-minute dogsled ride! These dogs are the real thing. Rested from the long frozen trails of winter, these veterans of the Yukon Quest are eager to show you the strength and stamina it takes to cover up to 150 miles of wilderness in one day. Competent and experienced mushers guide the teams and are available to explain dog team travel and history.
During your return trip to Skagway, you'll be entertained by professional guides with their amusing stories of local lore and captivating tales of the Gold Rush Era. As you drive down the mountainside, you'll have ample opportunities to take fabulous photos at scenic vistas such as Skagway Scenic Overlook, Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and more.
