Transpiring as the wild west boomtown with the 1897 Klondike Gold Rush, Skagway is now a strikingly charming destination town in the Inside Passage
Cruise travellers and ferry passengers alike flock to this renowned harbor site, step off their luxury liners and are transferred to the main avenue Broadway St., the heart of the Klondike Gold Rush National Park Historic District featuring well-preserved historic display shops, restored buildings and wooden boardwalks bustling with lively locals clad in period-costume.
The more adventurous visitors will be thrilled to trek Alaska's world-renowned Chilkoot Trail, retracing the stampeders' route to the Klondike gold mines over the "Golden Stairs". Whether you want to engage in the captivating history with a downtown walking tour, ride the historic White Pass & Yukon Route railroad or indulge in excellent dining, Skagway is a prime spot to wander for a few days and relive the spirit of the Gold Rush days.
Like most of South-East Alaska, Skagway is best visited as part of an Alaskan Cruise
. However, for a complete Alaska experience, you may consider adding a pre- or post-trip to visit South-Central
and Denali National Park
to your vacation itinerary. Home to North America’s tallest peak, Alaska’s iconic wildlife, and over 6 million acres of wilderness, it is truly a destination not to miss.
