In 1987, Frontier Excursions & Adventures was founded by David and Jeanne Gonzalez. Since 2009 we have been owned and operated by Cris Siegel and Katie Leonetti. Cris and Katie are also owners and operators of Skagway Float Tours since 1997, providing outdoor adventures on the Chilkoot Trail and Taiya River near Skagway. We are committed to providing great tours, prices, and service for all our customers.
We are excited about the upcoming season and hope you will join us on a fun adventure in Skagway!
What we'll do
On our half-day tour to the Yukon border, follow in the path of the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders of 1898 as you travel up the Klondike Highway, past waterfalls and steep mountains of coastal rainforest. See views of the WP&YR railroad, Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls and Moore Creek Bridge.
As we cross the 3292 foot summit of the White Pass and the Canadian Border we enter the subarctic alpine tundra of the "Tormented” valley with its crystal blue Summit Lake.
At the Summit, we visit the Welcome to Alaska sign for a photo.
We’ll continue on the journey through spectacular scenery in Canada of dramatic lakes and the Northern Boreal forest wilderness. Stand at the shores of Lakes Tutshi and Tagish, encircled by mile-high mountains and pose at the Yukon Border sign for a great photo-op. Panoramic wilderness vistas await you.
The Yukon is always our best opportunity to encounter wildlife, so we’ll be watching for bears, moose, sheep, goats and more!
