About this Skagway Tour
Begin your experience at the Historic Clark Farm which now hosts Jewell Gardens, home of the first Certified Organic Show Garden in the United States. The garden dazzles with hundreds of tulips and lilacs during the early season, giant ultra-blue larkspurs midsummer, and an abundance of flowers and enormous produce in August and September.
Then, get ready to experience the magnificence of hand-blown glass art in the Garden City Glassworks Theater. Alaska’s newest hot shop sits at the base of an impressive rock wall amid the beauty of Jewell Gardens. You’ll get to watch as expert glass artists explain the process of glass blowing and provide an entertaining demonstration. During this experience you may also interact with the artists as they create stunning works of art from molten glass. The color and organic form of hand-blown glass art is the perfect complement to Jewell Garden’s rainbow of flowers.
What truly makes this tour unique is the one-on-one interaction you will have with the artists. They’ll be available to answer any questions and offer a detailed explanation on this form of art. Food and beverages are available for purchase on site. Before wrapping up this experience, your guide will take you into the Gift Gallery for a short tour. This location is the only producing blown glass studio in Alaska. There are six full-time glass artists on site who have created some of the best and most precious pieces for you to admire and take home.
