Immerse Yourself in Alaskan Beauty & History

Skagway is positioned in a narrow glaciated valley, at the head of a deep fjord, and surrounded by staggering mountains. Since Skagway is connected to the Alaska Highway system, many cruise passengers depart their ship from here. Instead of leaving immediately, consider taking the time to stay and explore.

As you depart your ship, you will immediately understand why Skagway is one of the most popular port towns in Alaska. A short walk from the docks and you will find yourself in downtown Skagway, affectionately known as “Little Skagway”. Immerse yourself in frontier western culture as false fronts, 19th-century architecture, and wooden sidewalks line the streets. Popular excursions include riding the iconic White Pass and Yukon Route on its narrow railway or visiting Canada’s Yukon.

Highlighted below are some of the most popular shore excursions in Skagway.  Please feel free to browse these shore excursions and let us know which one interests you most, or jump right in and fill out our Shore Excursions Proposal Form.
