Train up to Fraser and then van as far as Emerald Lake.
Train up to Fraser and then van as far as Emerald Lake. Scenic and relaxing, I loved seeing the traces of the miners' trail up the White Pass from the train.

Great driver with lots of wonderful information. Comfortable bus.So much fog that we just didn't get the wonderful scenery you usually get. Emerald Lake was amazing. Lunch was only so-s0. Grandson wouldn't eat anything but the watermelon. Our final stop could have been wonderful, but train arrived at same time and the number of people there made it impossible to shop or enjoy.

Skagway bus / train ride – This was a fantastic tour. We booked this tour through BeyondSkagway.com and had a private bus tour to Emerald Lake with stops along the way. This tour was about $250 per person. The morning bus ride out was riddled with fog. The driver, Candace, told us that for July the weather was very typical. My mother was concerned about safety and driving in the fog, but there was so little traffic and Candace really knew the road well. I asked her to pick out her favorite stops because we were not familiar with the various stops. We ended stopping at a glacier waterfall and having a drink of fresh glacier melt water. It was very cold and very tasty. We stopped several times for photos at various lakes and mountains, but the best stop was at the puppies. For $25 per vehicle, we all got out to hold and pet puppies that are being trained to be dog-sled dogs. What a blast! Once we reached Emerald Lake, we stopped for photos. This lake is gorgeous with a deep emerald green color due to diatoms and runoff from the mountains. This is well worth the trip. Several of my group members asked why a 65 mile (each way) trip would take 7 hours. With all the stops and lunch along the way, it ended up taking what it did. It was a perfect trip and worth the 7 hours. This was with BeyondSkagwayTours.com, excellent outfit! Read Less

Yukon Adventure by Bus with Chilkoot Charter and Tours Easy pick up right in front of the ship. Our tour guide (I apologize I can’t remember her name) provided us with a lot of information on Skagway and stories of the “Klondike Gold Rush” on our way to White Pass Summit. We stopped multiple times for photo ops of waterfalls, majestic mountains, glaciers, and historic sites. Our guide was a professional at knowing how to quickly take all of our photos in front of the “Welcome to Alaska” and “Welcome to the Yukon” signs. We stopped at the train station to pick up passengers and headed into the Yukon on the Klondike Highway. We stopped for lunch at Caribou Crossing Trading Post. The highlight of this stop was seeing the dog mushing camp and puppies. We also saw a bear while we were here (very exciting). We had one more stop for shopping and then we headed back to Skagway; most of us took a little nap. We had another quick stop for a bear sighting on the side of the road. Once back in Skagway we did a little shopping and had a “spruce tip beer” at Skagway Brewing Company. It was surprisingly tasty! We bought a Ulu knife here and it was the cheapest price compared to all other stops. So if you want one, I would suggest you buy it in Skagway. It is a great souvenir I am reminded of our trip each time I use it. Read Less

My husband and I did the Alaskan cruise 7 years ago and chose the White Pass Railway while in Skagway. It was a beautiful train ride, but we decided to do something different this time so we picked the bus tour of Yukon with Frontier Excursions. It was awesome! Instead of only getting a glimpse of the wonderful sights while on the train, we were able to stop and enjoy them on this tour. Our driver HEIDI was AMAZING. She was knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. She stopped on the side of the road for us to enjoy a mama bear with her cubs and entertained us during the drive with wonderful stories. The White Pass takes you to the Canadian border, this tour takes you much further in. I highly recommend this tour! My only pet peeve is how many tourist don't tip their tour guide, especially after 7 hours of hard work. Read Less

We booked through Viator on Frontier Excursions and found the tour guide and tour to be spectacular. We were blessed with absolute blue skies and the best weather you could possibly ask for. Our tour was 6.5 hours of driving through the yukon while making several stops and some of the most scenic places I have experienced. Mike, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and funny. If or when I cruise to Alaska again, it is highly likely I will repeat this shore excursion... it is that good! Read Less
