Skagway Alaska | Shore Excursions Tours

Most of our Alaska Cruise Land Tours stop in Skagway, this Alaskan town steeped in history of the Klondike Gold Rush era, nowadays serves as a popular port of call for large and small cruise ships alike. 

Surrounded by wilderness and mountainous ranges, Skagway offer a wide range of shore excursions with small town hospitality set in true Alaskan wilderness. This small town port sees more than 900,000 visitors each year, mostly from cruise ship passengers docking for a day trip on the famous White Pass and Yukon Railroad taking travelers over plunging gauges and narrow passageways to the White Pass Summit at 2,865 ft. 

Independent travelers can even connect all way through to Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada with a combination of rail and coach travel. Iconic merchant buildings of the gold rush era litter the downtown core of Skagway, reminiscences of a by-gone era. 

Here you’ll find crafts from native Alaskan residents to popular souvenirs.
