Becoming popular in the Gold Rush days, this town still holds the feel of that era.
It’s been almost fully restored, and the wooden walkways that line the town are one simple expression of history and beauty in Skagway. Locals often dress in period costumes adding to the false-front buildings, which place vacationers back in time.
- Broadway Street: most the town and shops are located on this street
- Historic walking tours: given by park rangers and free to visitors, it is given five times a day during the summer
- Hikes: trails are located minutes from town and lead to waterfalls, alpine lakes and more
- White Pass and Yukon Railroad: take a ride and get reservations on your cruise ship
- Red Onion Saloon: a former brothel, turned into a restaurant and touristy area
What our customers are saying about Skagway:
Visited through a Celebrity Cruise excursion – Alaskan Dog Sledding and Musher Camp experience. The experience was wonderful, everything was as described, the staff was so friendly and shared so much information about the dogs. Our Musher was GUS and he was fantastic. He answered all our questions and gave us a great experience with his dog team. He also was kind enough to take some great pictures of us and the dogs!
I consider this a DO NOT MISS experience!Melissa Y
“Out to Sawyer Glacier”
Blue ice. The first leg is in a high speed enclosed boat: look for mountain goats, sea lions and whales. Canoe out down the river, take breathtaking photos. Stand right on the glacier at the point it is melting into the fjord. Place your hand on ice that is thousands of years old. Outstanding tour. Unique experience not to be missed.Brian K
