We are happy to offer the Rainforest Bicycle Tour in 2021!
Visit the historic site of Dyea and bike through the temperate rainforest!
During the Gold Rush, Dyea was Skagway’s rival city, booming with 10,000 people. Now nature has reclaimed the land, leaving only ghosts of its Gold Rush past. The area is now managed and maintained by the National Park Service.
This scenic tour starts with an informative van tour along the coastal inlets to the west of Skagway. After a bicycle and safety orientation, your guide leads your small group on a bike route that covers five miles of flat terrain for easy pedaling. You ride through the lush rainforest, visit historic ruins, and see the Chilkoot trailhead. Keep an eye out for eagles, salmon, bears, colorful wildflowers, and scenic mountain views. Leave the crowds behind, get some mild exercise, and take in the natural wonders of Alaska on a bicycle!
