About Skagway

Skagway is a Southeast Alaskan paradise, full of culture and brimming with life. As you walk through parts of the city you'll feel like you are back in 1898 at the height of the Alaskan gold rush, when the city was known as the 'Gateway to the Klondike'.

The frontier-style storefronts of the saloons and bars along the rustic boardwalk date back to the late 19th century and form part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. They are perfectly preserved and filled with unusual and interesting artefacts and local heritage.

However, the great restaurants and wonderful shopping facilities will bring you well and truly back into this century. This unique blend of old and new, coupled with incredibly beautiful natural surroundings, enhances the atmosphere of Skagway all the more.

A visit to Skagway would not be complete without a ride on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad. Re-live the adventure of the 20,000 gold-seekers who braved the Chilkoot and White Pass trails in 1898 as you ascend the pass on a narrow gauge railroad, and enjoy the spectacular views from the comfort of the train. The railway is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, a designation shared with the likes of the Panama Canal and the Eiffel Tower.
