Sightseeing Tours

From Klondike Gold Rush history to arctic wildlife in its natural habitat and spectacular Aurora Borealis viewing in the wintertime, our sightseeing tours will accompany you on your journey to making new memories and guide you towards the best highlights and sights every moment of your time here.

To get you started on the right foot, take a look at our Yukon in Focus tour, a 4-day photography experience based in Whitehorse. This tour allows you to hone your photography skills by first teaching you some photography principles and then allowing you to practice around the beautiful city of Whitehorse, in Haines Junction and around Kluane National Park. You’ll capture beautiful landscapes, inspiring nature shots and, with luck, close-ups of Northern wildlife.

To extend your stay – or if you’d rather just immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty and history of Alaska and Yukon – Ruby Range Adventure offers a variety of summer and wintertime sightseeing tours.

Our trips focusing on National Parks, for example, offer incredible opportunities to gaze up steep mountain peaks, hike up lush landscapes to crystal-clear, emerald lakes, and even touch glaciers. And depending on when you visit, you’ll also have the chance to spot some truly spectacular wildlife, including wolves, Dall sheep, caribou and more!

Of course, if you’d rather explore the cities and communities that emerged from the Klondike Gold Rush and witness the relics of those times, we also offer a multitude of hotel and bus tours to help guide you through the footsteps of the Stampeders of 1898.

Our experienced guides will let you in on all the secrets and introduce you to the must-see highlights of the North. You will see steamships and paddle wheelers such as the SS. Evelyn and SS. Klondike, visit trappers’ cabins (and the Jack London cabin), and try your hand at panning for gold in still-active mines.

As you travel from destination to destination, you’ll witness breathtaking views of Yukon and Alaskan wilderness and wildlife, get a true feeling of the vastness of these lands, and learn more about our rich history through the variety of relics and trading posts along. Many of our tours also allow time for incredible optional experiences, such as helicopter flight-seeing over Denali, and marine-life and bird-watching in the Kenai Fjord National Park.

Finally, for sightseeing tours with a twist, consider our lodge-based fishing tours and our wintertime Journey to Tuktoyaktuk, which will offer immersive cultural and nature experiences. Our private lodge, for example, is situated on the Kluane lake and is accessible only by floatplane; you will be surrounded by nature and wildlife for the duration of your stay, allowing for wonderful sightseeing opportunities – in addition to the trophy trout of the lake.

The Journey to Tuktoyaktuk, on the other hand, will offer you an unforgettable experience of the arctic in the wintertime, incredible city sightseeing opportunities, moving cultural experiences, and the chance to enjoy the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.

We are sure you will find something to suit your needs.
