Alex and Wyatt were so knowledgeable about Skagway and kayaking! Thanks so much for making our trip fantastic. Couple that with the White Pass Mountain Railroad ride back to the... More

We recently did this tour via the Celebrity Solstice and it was AMAZING! Our guides, John, Tom & Andre were fun, knowledgeable and accommodating. I am 27 and so is my fiance, we also did this hike with his Dad and Wife who are 56 & 60. We were tired by the end of the day but it wasn't too... More

Our family went on a combination glacier lake kayak/white pass mountain railroad excursion while on a Royal Caribbean cruise in August 2016. From the moment Megan, one of our guides, introduced herself, we knew we were in good hands and would have a great time. Megan pointed out many points of interest and facts about the area from the time... More

To say Alaska is breathtaking doesn't begin to do it justice. To say Packer Expeditions are pros that offer once in a lifetime experiences also seems to fall short. We took the Laughlin Glacier hike with Iloba & Keith and wouldn't have missed it for the world. You take a train to the beginning of the hike where there is... More

On June 23rd we took the White Pass Summit train ride to Fraser BC where we kayaked on Lake Bernard. The weather was perfect, the senerery was beautiful and the tour guides, Pete and Megan were awesome. I would highly recommend this excursion.

We went on the Denver Valley Wilderness Hike with White Pass Rail in August, 2016 in Skagway. We were met by Wyatt, one of our guides, at our cruise pier and walked to meet the other group going on the hike, in total we were 14 with 3 guides. This company always uses a maximum of 6 people per guide... More

This was the best of the four excursions I took while on a Royal Caribbean cruise, and the only one that I booked through the cruise line. I was looking for the most active and adventurous excursion I could find, and the Laughton Glacier hike definitely fit the bill. The trip began with a scenic train ride on the White... More

We went on the Denver Valley Hike with the White Pass train ride in Skagway. It was amazing! The mountain views from the train were breathtaking and the 4 hour hike was not over strenuous and was like walking through an enchanted forest. Our guides, Kyle and Tom, were very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. They also made sure... More

Ruth, Meghan, and Annie made the day, And the hike was pretty fantastic as well! Well done Packers for having such great staff. From the moment we were picked up by the organized and professional Ruth I had a feeling it would be a great day. She was exceptional even when a couple showed up late and did not have... More

We were on a cruise to Alaska and booked a tour with the cruise line to do some kayaking and what we got was so much more thanks to these awesome folks! Picked up at the pier by Wyatt who rode the bus up to the lake with us, and filled us in on a lot of the local history... More
