Skagway Alaska has a unique place in Alaska's history; known as the "Gateway to the Yukon" during the Klondike gold rush. Today, one can almost hear the cries of "gold in the Yukon" echoing from canyon walls.
There are a wide variety of Skagway tours and excursions that give you a feel for the town, bring you to the Yukon and take you back to those Gold Rush days! Choices include excursions up the Klondike trail aboard The White Pass & Yukon Route train, guided sightseeing to relive the gold rush history that put Skagway on the world map in the late 1800s, including trips into Canada's Yukon Territory following the path of the Great Stampede. Helicopter tours to the nearby ice fields, including glacier landings and dog sledding are also available.
