5 HOUR CARCROSS TOUR

From USD $625.00
  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: 5HRCARCROSS
Five hours will allow you to travel 132 miles round trip allowing 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.  To savor the beach and have more time to visit the town, the 6 hour tour would be the better option.  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.

BOOKING TIP:  Just a few miles north of Carcross are two Yukon wonders:  the world's smallest desert and the spectacular Emerald Lake.  It would be a shame to miss out on these attractions, so we recommend booking the 5 HOUR tour and choosing departure time before 9 am in case you choose to add an additional hour to your tour.  All tours must return no later than 3pm so we are back in time for the afternoon departures.
