Skagway Horseback Riding Excursion Reviews

Trot your way through the beautiful wilderness of Skagway on a guided horseback ride.
Took a two ride through a National Park.
Took a two ride through a National Park. The guide team was excellent and the horses were well behaved, even if your a beginner. Take bug spray, horses do attract bugs.

Our excursion was cancelled. They didn't tell us until the meeting time, so we didn't have time to book independently. Skagway is a pretty cute town, very tourist friendly, but it's small, so you can see all of it in a few hours. It definitely would have been nice to have a tour or something so we could see the surrounding area Read Less

First time riders. Picked up from port and driven c20 minutes to Chilkoot Riding. They have about 40 horses - all rescued from slaughter. They give you a short briefing then match you up with a horse (depending on size, experience etc). Then it’s mount up and ride off in single file thru countryside. It’s a gentle pace throughout and there are 2 staff with your party the whole time. You are on the horse c1.5 hours. Great experience. Read Less

We LOVED the horseback riding. The horses were gentle and patient, and our guides provided just the right amount of commentary while telling us about our horses. All the horses are rescued from slaughter auctions, and in the winter go down to Alberta to live on a large ranch. The people working there (mostly students from other parts of the US) also care a lot about the animals, which shows. Read Less

The picture in the brochure, unfortunately, does not match what you do, entirely. In brochure, you see this amazing valley with river, beautiful snow covered mountains, etc. This scenery happens for only about 10 minutes because the rest of the time you are in a very dense forest where you can't see anything. We heard from many cruisers that the scenic train was amazing. Read Less

We did the sunset horseback riding excursion (although it wasn't really sunset considering it's summer in Alaska). This was my first time on a horse and the staff made it very easy to get started. Once on the horse I felt at ease as I bounded with my new friend. My new husband has previous horseback riding experience so the staff gave him a horse that would allow him to be a little more free (instead of having the horse fall the one in front). The views were amazing and well worth the cost! Read Less

Very sweet staff that gave us an overview of the area on the way to the ranch. We were just 4 so it was like a private ride. Gorgeous! Our guide gave us great information about the history and geology of the area and helped when my horse got a bit ornery (started biting the horse ahead of him! Brat!) It was really really fun and just the right amount of time. Read Less

This was my daughters first time riding and I am by no means a regular rider. Our groups was small, horses were chosen perfectly for each of us. We did early ride so not too hot. Learned a lot of local info (I was first in line - ones in back missed a lot because hard to hear). Beautiful views, easy to manage trails. Everyone was friendly and knew about horses. 30 min ride to ranch gave us chance to see a porcupine and some harbor seals. If you like horses or want to ride for first time - definitely worth it.
