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.
Surrounded by magnificent wild nature, Skagway is positioned at the head of a deep fjord, making it an ideal stop for cruise ships sailing Alaska's Inside Passage. Skagway's Gold Rush Klondike National Historic Park is the most visited national park in Alaska. This is a place where the romance and excitement of yesteryear lingers around every street corner. Skagway is also a place of adventure, with glacier dogsledding, sea kayaking, and river rafting tours. We highly recommend a ride on the White Pass Yukon Railroad, with the only operational vintage steam train in Alaska. Contact us via e-mail with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
