Retrace the footsteps of the stampeders with a short hike through the historic Chilkoot Trail, and then relax on a scenic float down the Taiya River. You'll board a private van and enjoy a 30-minute drive through Skagway and along the coast to historic Dyea. Enjoy an easy-paced hike walking through a rain forest alive with birds and wild flowers as your guide explains the natural history of the Chilkoot Trail, as well as the folklore and legends of the Gold Rush era. Then, at the shore of the Taiya River, you'll board an 18-foot inflatable raft for a relaxing float back to Dyea, just as the early settlers did. Come ashore, following the 40- minute river voyage, to enjoy a light snack before the return drive to Skagway.
