Skagway Hiking Excursion Reviews

Slide on your sneakers and hike along Skagway's coastline, around its winding trails, and through its forest to enjoy Alaska's natural splendors. You may even catch a glimpse of a bear along the way!

Chilkat Guides, hike and float trip , Layla was our guide for the hike and float trip and was informative and safety conscious. A great afternoon ditto the weather. We are seniors and she was very patient with us and others on this strenuous hike, 1 mile up hill on an uneven path, then 1 mile down hill and level ground. Hiking poles were provided and added to the safety of the hike. Read Less

We hiked up a hill to a river and then rafted down. It was a bit of a hike but so beautiful. We hiked over tree roots and rocks, up and down hills in a beautiful tree canopy. We then rafted back down to our waiting van. So memorable!

We took the hike with the float down the river. Absolutely beautiful! The hike was on the difficult side, but not too long and very much worth it. Just might want to be prepared, it's an excursion for those who are relatively fit.

This was a fun hike up and then down a mountain to get to the raft area. We didn't know we'd actually be navigating rocks and roots-so we were pleasantly surprised! We loved it! Alyssa was really informational and sweet!

We were driven to Dyea where we started up the Chilkoot trail used by the stampeders. The trail went through rain forest covered in moss. The guide was knowledgeable about Gold Rush history and about rain forest plants and animals. Truly amazing and educational. The hike goes over narrow trails, slippery rocks,climbing up and down, and ending at the Taiya River. We floated down the river back to the trailhead after donning rubber boots and life jackets. A glorious day. Lots of bald eagles along the way. Seals were seen in the river, also. Read Less
