We took this excursion through Princess Cruise Lines and it was fantastic. It was a little steep in sections but we went slow and stopped often. Our guide Becca was wonderful and really knows her stuff. We learned about the rainforest flora and fauna and what was edible and what to stay away from. At the end of the hike... 更多
I am very experienced in backpacking, having trekked in Australia, NZ, Nepal, Chile, and Argentina, and the Chilkoot Trail is one of the best walks I have ever been on. The walk goes through an amazing range of terrain, starting with coastal forest by the trail head in the USA, becoming alpine tundra as you get up and over the... 更多
I loved this adventure with my kids. We were closer and talked more. Wonderful to get away from the electronics of the world. The rangers were terrific and safety conscience. We checked in with them and they kept their eyes open for us. Everyone we met had a love of nature - creating a most memorable experience. There was more... 更多
Hiked Chilkoot from Skagway Alaska to Bennet Yukon in July 2015; 4 guys (incl. myself); Regardless, you meet many other hikers on the trek, you could potentially do this alone, but having someone else to walk and talk with passes the time an improves the overall experience. The campgrounds are extremely well maintained, with decks to pitch your tent and... 更多
This is a lovely trek through the rainforest followed by a river raft return. The trek is not difficult but requires some level of dexterity on sometimes tricky footing. We didn't see bears but there was plenty of evidence they were nearby. 2km trek seems longer as there is some steep steps. Get out and breathe it in.
The hike starts off a little steep here and there but overall this is fairly an easy hike. I would recommend borrowing a hiking stick when your guide offers one. The ride back down the river is a nice, relaxing end to the whole excursion. Alex, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He explained the history of the region... 更多

Our Guide Mary D. was fun and engaging. She pace the hike well and pointed out wildlife and plants that we would have missed. While on the easy float, we had a eagle land directly above us in one of the many trees and nest along the river. This was one of our favorite's in Alaska.
There were nine of us in our group (part of a Holland America tour), and I think I speak for all of us when I say that it was a most pleasant trip! Our tour guide, Mary Dickson, was informative, organized, conscientious, and entertaining. She shared many interesting facts about the plants, wildlife, and history of the Chilkoot Trail. She... 更多
