Step back in history with a biking trip near Skagway to the historic site of Dyea. Once Skagway’s rival during the Gold Rush, the Alaskan town of Dyea is now largely abandoned and has been retaken over by nature, leaving behind only ghosts and remnants of the past. Located at the foot of the famous Chilkoot Trail, Dyea provides the perfect starting point for a scenic 3-hour guided bike ride downhill from the Summit of White Pass on to the Chilkoot’s temperate rainforests.
Experience the great Northern outdoors, get some fresh air, and go biking on this exhilarating cycling adventure in the rainforests of Dyea near Skagway.
You’ll begin your fun with a 25-minute van ride through historic Skagway and up the coastal mountains to the summit of White Pass with fascinated commentary from your driver/guide. You’ll retrace the route taken by thousands of gold-crazed stampeders during the Alaska Gold Rush of 1898. Along the way, your experienced guides, well-versed in the history and ecology of the area, will entertain you with stores of past and present life in the “gateway to the Klondike”.
After a bicycle orientation and safety briefing, your biking guides will escort you down the fifteen scenic miles from the summit to the sea! As you coast along the paved Klondike Highway on this 1.5-hour ride, you’ll make multiple stops for photos of the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, cascading waterfalls, awe-inspiring glaciers, majestic mountains, and historic sites. You even get to cross the U.S. border on a bicycle! After your thrilling ride, enjoy any remaining time in historic downtown Skagway.
