About this Skagway, Alaska tour
Ready to seek your fortune? Meet a madam from the brothel? Split your sides laughing at an old-time show? This GoBe tour serves up an entertaining slice of the most fabled gold rush in history. But let's eat first.
Your adventure begins with a feast in the forest. Bring a hearty appetite and dig into all you want. There's grilled wild Alaskan salmon, Chilkoot Chicken, Panners Pasta, Liarsville Rice Medley, Prospector Pete's Reindeer Beans, Sluice Box Slaw and other fresh salads, cornbread, coffee, lemonade, and a fabulous blueberry cake for dessert. If you want to toast your adventure, beer and wine are available for a few nuggets.
"Gold fever" lives on in this camp, and you'll easily get the hang of panning. Gold is heavy and just about everything else is lighter. So load up your pan and shake it around just right in the water. The gold sinks to the bottom and the lighter stuff that rises to the top gets washed away. Your inner-prospector will be feeling mighty fine when you pocket your riches.
But the Klondike heydays weren't all about grubbing for gold. Dive into their wild and raucous side as we put on a humorous show by the "Bard of Yukon," Robert Service. Feel what camp life was like as you see the antiques and clothing left behind by the long-gone miners and ladies of the night. It's ironic, but today's Liarsville gives you a true taste of the spirit of the gold rush days.
The bard of the Yukon
Reading the tales of Robert William Service, you'd think this British-Canadian writer was in the thick of gold rush excitement. His well-known poems "The Cremation of Sam McGee" and "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" are humorously graphic. In fact, Service was a bank clerk posted to the frontier town of Whitehorse after the gold rush. But he struck it rich (and famous) when tales he heard about the gold rush fired his imagination.
