Dual LCD TV screens, DVD player and stereo provide scenic slideshows, fabulous music options, or movies of your choosing. Vader's newly installed stereo and speakers for the back passenger area allow the driver to narrate transforming the "limo" into astylish tour vehicle. Your driver can pipe in without stopping the music or movie from your own separate stereo system when something
interesting needs to be shared. SKAGWAY'S ONLY LUXURY VEHICLE OPTION!
Enjoya locally guided tour with photo stops on your way up the White Pass to the Yukon Territory and enjoy your own music, movies, or conversations with your friends or family on the way back. Journey 150 miles roundtrip from Skagway, through British Columbia, past the border of the Yukon Territory to Carcross village and all the way to spectacular Emerald Lake. You will travel up the Klondike Highway to the historic White Pass summit, driving through a moonscape of sub alpine terrain and continue closer to the Yukon Territory through Boreal forests and alongside massive glacial lakes with majestic Mountains in every direction.
Six hours allows you to continue deeper into the beautiful Yukon Territory past the dramatic Venus Mine, spectacular Bove Island and arrive at the Tagish First Nation town of Carcross. This historic town rests at the north end of Lake Bennett, the stampeder's first leg of the water journey to Dawson. Lake Bennett has a glorious sandy beach for several miles to
escape and enjoy the heat.
We will continue past Carcross to the unexpected world's smallest desert and take in the mind bending sight of sand dunes in the middle of this rugged landscape. The highlight of this tour is breathtaking Emerald Lake, 75 miles from Skagway; It's like the northern lights in water! If we manage our time we may add a visit to Caribou Crossing wildlife museum for dog sledding demonstrations and rides, sled dogs, puppies, and gold panning (admission and activities can be added for an additional charge on arrival). Grab a sandwich or ice cream in Carcross and enjoy a lunch by the beach. Vader also allows for a comfortable place to have lunch at ANY scenic photo stop-- it's a rolling picnic area that is bug free!
There are great opportunities for wildlife encounters driving this far into the interior. Leaving early in the morning provides better opportunities to get out ahead of the numerous big buses and other larger tour vehicles so we can travel ahead of the pack. It also increases the opportunities to see wildlife as we would get there before the big guys scare them away.
150 miles round trip.
