The scenery on the was to and from the adventure was spectacular. That in itself was worth the trip. The sled dog adventure was very informative and a lot of fun. We are extremely happy we chose the excursion.

Our tour guide, Jack, picked us up for one of the prettiest drives into the Yukon all the while explaining the history of the Gold Rush and the current history of Skagway and the Yukon. We got to Michelle Phillip’s sled dog training area and cuddled the most adorable puppies and pet some beautiful friendly mamas and retired dogs. We learned about the different gear and all the training that goes into the dogs by Erin and then a team was hitched to an ATV and we were taken on a super fun ride. Erin stopped and took all our cameras and took tons of pictures! We got to spend more time with all the dogs and then Jack took us to an area to pan for gold. We each had about 5 pieces in our pans. We had some time to shop in the little store and then Jack drove us back, stopping at prime locations to let us get out and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. We even got to see a bear running into the woods!! When we arrived back in Skagway, he let us off in town to do some shopping! This was our favorite excursion! Thank you, thank you!

The pick you up in. Medium sized tour bus. Brief tour of Skagway, then a 20 minute drive to the dog sled adventure where you ride in 4 wheel ATV pulled by a team of Alaskan Huskies. The ATV and dogs run on a dirt path with some small slopes so ATV engine is on and assist the dogs uphill. After the ATV sled ride you pan for gold in a trough on the property. On the way back to Skagway, you have a few more stops. Go to waterfall. Welcome signs for Alaska and Yukon and more photo taking. We saw a Black Bear from the bus and the driver stopped and allowed us to take photos from the bus.. Overall worthwhile trip. My on caveat is if you go on ATV dog sled and stand in back, as not everyone gets a seat, hold the ATV rail (roll bar) tight as the ride is bumpy and a bit hilly.
