Drive up the spectacular Klondike Highway and into Canada's Yukon Territory. Along the way you'll see the awe-inspiring expanse of land that both infuriated and enchanted gold seekers over one hundred years ago. Pass waterfalls, glaciers and peaks before crossing the mountain cradle of the 3,290-foot summit. In the Yukon, you'll visit the village of Carcross. Further north, see the 'smallest desert in the world,' and then continue to Emerald Lake, truly a gem in its green valley setting. Lunch is a home-style affair at the Spirit Lake Lodge, famous throughout the Yukon for its wonderful pies. Note: This excursion enters Canada - all participants are required to carry a valid passport. For more details about this tour please visit: http://www.ncl-yukonexcursions.com

Skagway Black Bear
This was one of the highlights of our trip. Our tour guide, Tom, was funny and informative. We actually saw bears on the side of the road, and Tom stopped so we could take pictures (from the inside of the van, of course) and even backed up a way to give us a better view. He really catered to our requests. Tom, if you're reading this, we sent you a box of Hawaiian cookies. It's at your post office right now. Hope you can pick it up before they send it back to me!
Waffled between this and the train for weeks. Was so very glad we took the bus. Smaller and much more intimate and flexible. We could stop and get out at any time for pictures, etc. Mark, our tour guide, was tops and very knowledgeable. As nice as the train ride seemed, I doubt they got to stop and see 9 bears like we did. The scenery was majestic from start to finish and the included lunch was good.
I, too, thought about the White Pass train excursion until I read the reviews for this tour. Take this tour!! You will not be disappointed. We had Tom for a guide and he is the best - friendly, animated, interesting, full of information, and dedicated to his group. He mad frequent stops on the drive up for photos and restroom breaks. He knows the country inside and out and you will not be bored on this tour. It appears to be a long tour but once you're in it the time flies by. Eating at the Spirit Lake Lodge was awesome. Really good soup, and the pie was outstanding! Apple is the best, and the blueberry was good too, but get the apple. There is a small gift shop at the eatery and it had 50% off items in Sept. 2011.
