You'll fly over the rainforest, blue crevasses and glacier carved peaks to a dog sled camp where pros will teach you to drive a team of dogs and share their personal tales of the Iditarod. If you're game to drive, so are they. Or paddle your way in a kayak through the protected waters of Clover Pass in Tongass National Forest in Ketchikan. Keep your eyes open for eagles, seals and marine life. TOURS FOR CULTURE LOVERS Travel Skagway like a frontiersman aboard the White Pass Scenic Railway and re-create the 40-mile ride on the White Pass and Yukon narrow-gauge railroad that served the Gold Rush to the Klondike in 1898. Or watch the world's best lumberjacks go head-to-head in speed climbing, axe-throwing and other competitions too dangerous to try at home in a traditional lumberjack show in Ketchikan. TOURS FOR FAMILIES Learn about mining, pan for gold and garnets and keep what you find. Enjoy a fun and educational gold rush experience for the whole family. The excitement begins when you arrive at Sheep Creek, site of the ruins of the Alaska-Gastineau Mill, once the world's largest producing gold mill. Led by an experienced miner, you'll put on your hard hat and venture inside the 360-foot-long conveyor tunnel carved into the mountainside. Spectacular vistas and plenty of family photo opportunities await outside.
