Its winter in Skagway Alaska and the beautiful views are buried under 50 feet of snow. It will be another 4 1/2 months before the roads clear, the snow melts and the brown bears come out of hibernation. They’ll take their places back along the Alaska Highway and eye us warily as we drive through British Columbia and the Yukon Territory just up the road from Skagway, Alaska.
The memories last forever along the Alaska Highway. Make sure to stop by our tour office on Broadway Street in Skagway, Alaska between May and September. Join a tour from 2.5 to 6 hours long. For the best deals shop local and online! Alaska is our home and we can’t wait to show you around during your visit. Hopefully, a few of our furry friends will shop up along the way.
We came across this fellow munching on berries along side the road last July. Our drivers reported seeing him several times a week. He scurried off into the bushes… Camera Shy? If you are quick, you can capture an image, too.
Black bears and brown bears live along the highway, as well as Dall sheep, mountain goats and occasionally we’ll spot a bald eagle soaring overhead.
Our tours stop frequently at lookouts along the way. And when the bushes rustle or we catch a glimpse of a dark shape ghosting through the underbrush, we pull over and watch from a little distance.
Hope to see you soon. If you have any questions or are bringing a group to visit Skagway, Alaska call us at (907) 723-4182. We have tours leaving regularly from our tour office on 3rd and Broadway in historic Skagway, Alaska.
