We will offer a tour for foodies next year, called “Taste of the Yukon.”
Our 11 and 14 passenger 2015 Ford Transit Vans, with high ceilings, are comfortable, clean and very affordable for tours. With a guide included, the cost is $147 per hour. Customize your tour for any length of time. Choose the tour options that fit your interest!
Welcome to our new Caribou Crossing Coffee Picnic Menu. A larger format is found above, titled as Picnic Menu! Email heike@tagish_cabins.com to let Heike know what you’d like for your picnic lunch. You may choose to eat at one of Beyond Skagway’s wilderness settings, during your tour. Your picnic payment may be made to Heike.
Michelle Phillips, 13 time Iditarod and Yukon Quest Racer, has opened a new dog sled camp for all to enjoy. We stop here when you request a visit, either to pet the pups or take a dog cart ride through beautiful Yukon wilderness and visit Michelle. She enjoys chatting with you about her experiences on the trail and her “off the grid” lifestyle. We will take you here, if you’d like!
Here’s where Beyond Skagway Tours held last night’s staff meeting. We enjoyed take out from our local Thai Restaurant, Starfire, and a little practice in the art of panning for gold in the creek. It’s what we do; bi-monthly meetings, where we learn something new and have a little fun in the process.
In an effort to protect our environment from additional plastic, it’s our aim to be more effective in not using throw away bottles. Instead, we will be stopping at Bridal Veil Falls, to fill your new water bottle with filtered water.
You may purchase a new water bottle with our logo on it, for $3 each. Your money then goes to an environmental group that we support! It’s a win win situation! You get to drink glacier water during your tour, you take home a reusable water bottle, an environmental group benefits with our support and our earth breathes a little easier, knowing we won’t be adding plastic to it!
There’s no need to filter this glacier water, as it is very pure, but this will eliminate any worries! Our filters will protect you from 99.94% of bacteria, including Giardia.
Thank you! Becky
Spring is breaking up early this year~ Following an extra mild winter, we are heading into record breaking warm temps this spring. Let’s hope for a warm and beautiful day when you visit us, and go Beyond Skagway!
Announcing our two new 2015 Ford Transit Vans, with high ceilings and lots of leg room. You will enjoy individual seats, not bench seats. New, clean and very comfy, you will ride in one of these two vans, if you have 9-14 people in your group! Our smaller groups will be in one of our “also very nice” mini vans or our SUV.
Dandelions are a bear’s favorite springtime food! It won’t be long till the season arrives and they will be getting their fill along the Klondike Hwy. Join us for a tour and maybe you’ll see your Dandelion eating Grizz.

Announcing new this season! Michelle Phillips is offering her sled dogs and puppies to us in a new location. She is leaving Caribou Crossing. Her new location will be less crowded and less expensive for us to visit! Michelle races in the Iditarod Race every spring, racing from Anchorage to Nome in an amazing 1,000 mile long race. After every dog cart ride, Michelle will share with you, tales from the trail.
Thought you might like to meet our new reservationist, Abby! She is part of our family, really… my daughter and Abby have been friends since they were in second grade. Abby now has a 14 year old daughter! Welcome Abby!
