Strike out for gold on a journey back to the rough and seductive roots of the Klondike Gold Rush’s most famous boomtown. This tour will take you from the docks of present-day Skagway to the historic businesses and buildings that comprise this National Park town.
We’ll travel back in time to experience Skagway in its heyday when there were wooden boardwalks, ladies of the night calling from windows and gunslingers sidling up to the local bar. You’ll hear stories of the foolhardy stampeders, industrious native guides, quick-thinking ladies, wild west mobsters and desperate entrepreneurs who gave this stretch of Alaska’s coastits living legacy. After the tour, you’ll know a lot more about this quirky frontier town that gets up to one million visitors each summer.
The highlights include:
• Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park
• Broadway Street which is the busiest section of Skagway’s downtown
• Locomotives that hauled thousands of stampeders closer to the goldfields
• Houses of Negotiable Affection
• A gold rush ghost town
• The famed Chilkoot Trail
This tour is a must for any curious mind looking to discover Skagway’s close connection to the land and entrepreneurial spirit. Join me on an insider’s guide to the Gateway to the Klondike.
