Michelle Phillips, (#16 finisher in the 2018 Iditarod Race) has a dog mushing camp only a little over one hour from Skagway. This makes a great stop for families. Play with puppies, take a 15 minute dog cart ride, pulled by Michelle's Iditarod team and learn about the incredible sport of competitive mushing. Humans and dogs alike at this camp are endurance athletes. ( Michelle runs and trains for marathons during her time off. )
Sample Itinerary: May vary according to your interests
9:30 AM: Meet the Beyond Skagway Tours representative, who will be wearing a blue coat and holding a "Beyond Skagway" sign, at the end of your ship's pier, just past port security.
Head North, through Skagway. Listen, while your guide weaves the story of the Klondike Gold Rush of '98. View notable historical buildings and hot spots to visit after your tour. Cruise over White Pass, passing by at these scenic viewpoints:
South Glacier Viewpoint
Bridal Veil Falls
Overlook above William Moore Bridge
Alaska Sign for group photos
10:30 AM: Canadian Customs; be prepared with your PASSPORTS handy! Continuing north, scan for wildlife and pass by or stop at these scenic points for photos!
11:00 AM: Stop At Michelle Phillip's summer dog mushing camp
Most groups allow 30-60 minutes at dog camp. You will want to play with the pups, watch the video about mushing, and maybe even take a dog cart ride! Don't expect any snow on the group in summertime however!
12:00 PM: Head north on the S. Klondike Highway, stopping at or passing by these viewpoints
Tutshi Lake (look out for mountain goats!)
12:45 PM: Carcross for lunch ( not included in price ) Enjoy lunch at one of two vendors in town or ask us about a picnic lunch! It can allow for more time on the road if you order a picnic lunch from Skagway, and eat lunch at dog camp!
2:30 PM: Head south on the same highway, enjoying a completely different view as you now watch the snowy and heavily glaciated north faces of the White Pass mountains slowly unfold before you.
4:30 PM: Arrive back in Skagway, in town or at your ship!
