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.

      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.

Take your handpicked treasure to The Gold Shack, where you can have it weighed and made into a souvenir bezel.
