Skagway, located in Alaska’s Panhandle owns a unique place in Alaska’s history as the “Gateway to the Yukon”, infamous during the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1800s and prominently featured in Jack London’s book Call of the Wild.

If your Alaska cruise stops in Skagway, you’ll be able to escape into Alaska wilderness on a wide range of shore excursions and private adventures. Take a private guided hike on the Klondike Trail or enjoy a train ride on the White Pass Railroad and learn more about Gold Rush history, Yukon Territory history and the Great Stampede from your private guide. Biking local Skagway bike routes, private helicopter trips to nearby ice fields, including glacier landings and dog sledding are also able to be arranged by Alaska Private Touring.  If you’re interested in a true wilderness experience, the less-busy port of Haines is just 45-minutes away by water taxi and offers a number of wildlife and adventure opportunities.
