Experience Dyea's natural beauty and Gold Rush history during this relaxing bicycle ride through the rainforest.
This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.
Depart the pier for the transfer to Dyea, Skagway's rival city during the Gold Rush. Upon meeting your guides, you will receive your safety and tour instructions, then begin your mountain biking adventure. Your guides will lead you on a bike route covering five miles of flat terrain for easy pedaling. En route, they will inform you about the area's ecology and history.
Sites to be seen during your ride through the rain forest include historic ruins, the Chilkoot trailhead and the coastal tidal flats where eagles, salmon, colorful wildflowers and dazzling mountains are often in view. This tour is ideal for those seeking mild exercise in the fresh Alaskan air.
Following your tour, you will re-board your van for the return drive to the pier.
