The Skagway Triple Adventure is the ultimate outdoor experience!

 
You bike through the coastal temperate rainforest onto the tidal flats, hike the same Chilkoot Trail as the early goldrush prospectors, then float down the glacial-fed Taiya river on a relaxing raft journey.

The tour begins with a 20-minute narrated van ride to the historic site of Dyea. Where once there was a famous goldrush town of 10,000 prospectors, now nature has reclaimed the land. Your guide fits you to a bike and escorts you for five miles of easy pedaling on flat dirt roads with stops at historic and nature sites. Search for eagles and view colorful wildflowers while enjoying the beautiful mountain vistas as you pedal along.

At the conclusion of the bike segment you meet your guide for the two mile hike on the historic Chilkoot Trail. The first mile is up and down over uneven terrain with the second mile being relatively flat. You stop often to learn about the area, take photos, and quench your thirst. The hike ends at the bank of the Taiya River where the rafting segment of your adventure begins.

You are outfitted with rubber boots and a life jacket. The river has no whitewater. This relaxing float is the grand finale of your amazing outdoor experience. Watch for bald eagles diving for fish as you float along, or glimpse a river otter sliding off the bank.  At the conclusion of the raft trip you are transferred by van back to Skagway.
