This was a great hike and float. Our tour guide had so much energy and information to share. There were parts that were steep but everyone with us did fine.

I'm not sure anything was more fun than our hike along the Chilkoot Trail with Becca as our guide. From a scenery perspective, this feels like walking through Middlearth. The hike is moderately physical, however a couple that joined us with an older (70s) gentleman...More

Our guide Zach did and amazing job of leading us through the resin forest terrain and river float! This would be strenuous for older folk who aren't in shape. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Our families are trying to do this excursion together. There are 13 of us in total. We booked thru the Disney Cruise line (for 6/8/2017), but half way thru booking (one room at a time) you apparently got booked. So half of our group is at one time , and half of us at another. Is there any way to fix this so we can all go together? It would be very much appreciated. ~Joan

There is more benefit to doing this hike in a smaller group. That way it also becomes a better learning experience too. The guides are well-trained and very knowledgeable about the Alaskan ecosystem too. I book groups trips... More

WE have a group of 13, can we all go together?

Response from Ken J | Reviewed this property |
I believe you could. But They said they would like to have a group less than 10. You may negotiate with them before you sign up. I hope they accommodate your request! Good luck!
Do you actually go over the pass?

NO, not even close. Its a short 2 mile hike. The full trail is a major multi day undertaking. This was an enjoyable cruise excursion!!
