Escape the hustle and bustle of port and come discover the awe-inspiring Alaskan beauty just as the pioneers did -- on horseback!

After an entertaining drive through charming, historic Skagway and along the breathtaking coastline, you will arrive at the ranch in Dyea.

Your experienced guide offers a safety talk; then, you'll climb aboard your trusty steed. For 1¾ hours you will ride on horseback through the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park. Along the way, your knowledgeable guide entertains you with tales from the crazy days of the gold rush, and the boom and bust of the town of Dyea. You'll pass by some of the few remaining signs of what was once a rambling gold rush town of 10,000, including the Slide Cemetery.

Ride out of the rain forest and onto the Dyea flats overlooking the northern tip of Lynn Canal. Discover why the locals come here to view wildlife such as eagles and the salmon run. Soak in the serenity and marvel at the majestic mountains, streams, and Alaskan wildflowers. This adventure is sure to invigorate those who have been lured to Alaska by tales of its spectacular beauty.

After the ride, relax with your guide as you enjoy refreshments and Alaskan salmon pâté. Reflect on your serene adventure during the scenic drive back to Skagway.

The local tour operator takes pride in sharing Alaska's beauty and stories and is honored to provide you with a wonderful outdoor adventure in the last American frontier.
