About this Skagway tour
Your adventurous tour begins as you travel 3,290 feet above sea level. The White Pass Summit is perhaps one of the most iconic mountain passes in North America. The roadway runs parallel to the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad. As your make your way around its turns, your driver-guide will provide informative commentary about the landscape and scenery before you. Prepare to discover top historical locations such as Brackett Wagon Road, Pitch Fork Falls, Dead Horse Gulch, and Tormented Valley, whose dubious name is actually one of the best sights in all of Alaska.
You will live out your gold rush adventure upon your return to Skagway. Stop at the Klondike Gold Dredge where you’ll have a gold-seeking experience of your own. To rev up the authenticity, you’ll be greeted by “pioneers,” characters in costume who will help you get into the spirit. Learn all there is to know about gold panning; you’ll be able to practice your best technique in warm water troughs. Don’t feel discouraged; your gold fortune is guaranteed. Take your handpicked treasure to The Gold Shack, where you can have it weighed and made into a souvenir bezel.
Your tour ends when your driver-guide drops you at the location of your choice in Skagway.
