The Jeeps are definitely green but very fun and functional. However, make sure you get directions to their office before your arrival as nobody in town knows anything about them.

Skagway is only about 9 blocks long so you will be driving out of the area if you rent a Jeep. We traveled from Skagway, Alaska to British Columbia to the Yukon in a few hours. We saw beautiful scenery as we went over the mountains; visited the worlds smallest desert and stumbled upon a quaint little town. We drove over 150 miles which made it for a long day.

The staff at Green Jeep Tours is very friendly and helpful.

We are so glad we chose to rent this jeep! We were traveling around Southeast Alaska on a cruise ship but were hesitant about booking excursions through the cruise because they were so expensive and we were already spending a majority of our vacation with a bunch of other people... We found a few options online and contacted each of them. Jamie got back to us right away about the price and availability and we booked over the phone before we left on the cruise.

We are SO glad we made this choice instead of an excursion through the cruise! All of the staff we met to get in the jeep were very courteous and helpful. The location was not hard to find by Jamie's instructions, just a 15 minute walk from the dock. The scenery was absolutely stunning and it was so wonderful to get to travel around at our own pace by ourselves. We got on the road early and were able to stay ahead of the tour groups and do some of our own hiking and exploring off the beaten path. The information they provided, including a very detailed tour booklet, were very helpful and informative and made us feel like we had really made the most out of our day.

The only downside in our book was the new 200 mile limit. This was a change made between when we booked the rental over the phone and when we went to pick it up. It just seemed a little limiting since you're renting the jeep for the day-- we really would have loved to venture up to Whitehorse or Tagish, even if it meant spending less time at some of the scenic stops along the way. I think we would have had more than enough time to get the jeep back by 5 pm, but we were concerned that we wouldn't be able to make it there and back on our mileage and were worried about incurring any fines. Other than being a little disappointed by that limitation though, it really was the best decision we made on this trip.

I enjoy driving so I figured this would be a nice brake from the cruise. I was correct. The Jeep was clean and easy to drive. The cooler with the treats was very handy. We drove it up to the Robinson Roundhouse and turned around there. Great place for artsy fartsy pictures. I don't recall a miles limit on the Jeep but the guy said to try not to put over 200 miles on it. That kinda rubbed me the wrong way. It's either unlimited or not.

That's my only minor complaint. The views were amazing. It was great to get away from the cruise ship for a day. We hardly had any traffic. We didn't see any wildlife though. It made me want to drive farther on the Klondike highway.

We had a great day renting our jeep in Skagway but we did have some difficulty finding the office which is located in the back of the popcorn shop. Apparently they do not use street addresses and I had forgotten the directions. As I had booked the trip months earlier it would have been helpful to recieve an email confirmation with the location information prior to our departure. When we arrived everyone was very helpful and welcoming. We had a good day driving but we did encounter some issues with road construction. Luckily for us, when we had to stop for a few minutes we were beside a great photo op. so I clicked away. We saw one bear eating flowers beside the road and several eagles. We drove to Emerald Lake as recommended before returning home. On our way back into town we drove the road to Dyea which we both enjoyed.

We had an amazing day on the trip from Skagway to Emerald Lake on Green Jeeps.
While I think the train would be fun, this is the way to see the Yukon.
The owner was very informative and helpful. He sent along a cooler with water and granola bars, they hit the spot when needed.

The scenery was just amazing, the alpine like lakes, mountains, history etc was just a blast.
Doing it on your own schedule is even better. We were able to stop where and when we wanted.

A couple things on the way......
The Yukon Suspension bridge about half way to Carcross was actually pretty cool. We didn't know what it was when we pulled up, but the brand new buildings were interesting and we figured there had to be something fun there. Turns out it's a good place to spend an hour. Some great displays on the gold rush days, a fun walk across the river on the bridge. Great place to hit the restrooms and fuel up on snacks and coffee as well. The day we were there there was no charge to get it, we never did figure out if there is a charge to get in. If there isn't, we're not sure how they would be funding this place, the expense to build and maintain must be huge.

Up the road further are some amazing lakes. I happen to think the views at the lookout of Bove Island were some of the prettiest of our trip, although I am partial to lakes/mountains over oceans.

The sled dogs/museum tour just outside of Carcross was great. You get to hang out with the dogs, and play with the puppies if there are any. (You'll be trying to figure out how to sneak a puppy out in your coat, they were awesome) and the animal museum was surprisingly impressive.

Emerald lake is a great turnaround point. It is a neat looking lake but I don't think the prettiest views. You're really going there to see the color of the lake. There's not much different on the way to Whitehorse so a good place to make your way back.
On the way back we stopped at all the places we forgot to see on the way up or hit ones we took notes on to hit on the return trip.

All in, we were gone about 6 hours. Had a great meal in Skagway at the brewpub, good food.
