Alpine Lake Canoe Adventure From Skagway

Product Image
Here's your chance to follow in the wake of the Gold Rush era trappers and prospectors on this half day, moderate canoe tour at Summit Lake.

Alpine Lake Canoe Adventure from Skagway

Start your adventure on the dock in Skagway, where you and your small group will tour this historic town, before boarding your transport to the Canadian border. Along the way, you'll be treated to dazzling snow capped peaks, the famed White Pass, and spectacular views of the Denver Glacier.

After passing through Canadian customs, you will take a short walk along a winding, rocky alpine trail to the shores of beautiful Summit Lake, where you will be outfitted with boots, life jackets, and given a safety briefing and paddling instruction. Board one of the large, 12-person voyageur canoes similar to the ones used by Gold Rush era trappers and prospectors, then push off from the shoreline and take to the the narrow channels, cutting through snow capped glacier peaks. You will also have the opportunity to disembark and walk around secluded shores bordering the beautiful aquamarine waters.

Bring your camera and enjoy exploring the lake, with its background of rocky coves and inlets, knowing that your canoes are outfitted with small, outboard motors to assist you if the winds pick up or guests get tired. Once back on land you can relax and soak in the scenery as you are escorted back to Skagway.

Sign up today to tour downtown Skagway and experience the pristine waters of Summit Lake.

Please Note: All guests must present a valid passport and sign a liability waiver. A Canadian visa may be required for some participants, depending on nationality.
