THE PICNIC OPTION

  • Product code: PICNIC
Choose any hourly tour and add a picnic lunch to the day.  We will find a nice spot to stop and take in the view.  Folding camp chairs and table will add to the comfort of this stop.  Pack your own lunch or we will have one ready for you.   Beer, champagne or wine can be added to the picnic experience for an additional charge and may also be subject to Canadian duties at the border which could double the expense of alcohol.   Canadian Customs stated that the PROcess is quite fast and would not cause much delay at the border but the delay at customs can vary due to traffic and other unknown elements. 

Stopping at the grocery store, liquor store or any restaurant before hitting the road in Skagway would be included in total touring time and could shorten distance traveled.  Food options are available in the Carcross area which would require at least 6 hours to take advantage of the picnic option without feeling rushed or risking choking from eating so fast.  Relax.  Chew.
 

Group rate of $125 per hour for up to 6 people.  4 hour minimum.

4 HOURS $500

5 HOURS $625

6 HOURS $750

7 HOURS $875


An additional food charge will be billed and payable on arrival if we order food from a local Skagway business ahead of time.
(A menu link will be added closer to the cruise ship season for advance ordering so food will be ready when your tour begins.)
