Sample Itineraries

For the Rainy Day

  • Stop in at the National Park Service on 2nd Avenue to get some information about the historic area, walk around the museum and watch the free park film.
  • Visit the infamous Red Onion Saloon for a drink, pizza and a “quickie” tour of the brothel museum upstairs. Only $10 for 20 minutes!

  • Take a stroll through the Skagway Museum located in the historic McCabe Building.

For the Bucket List

  • Grab some delicious Halibut or Salmon Fish And Chips at Woadies Southeast Seafood on 4th Avenue.
  • Take a Flight with TEMSCO Helicopters to go Dog Sledding on a snow-covered glacier, in the summer! Or if  you would rather you can take a helicopter to the glacier for a fun filled glacier trek filled with crevasses and moulins! Even sip some Glacier Water!
  • Tantalize your taste buds with a wild game pizza or Elk Chili at Olivia's Bistro in the Historic Skagway Inn!

For the Adventurous Type

  • Get that adrenaline pumping early in the morning with a thrilling high-speed ride with Ocean Raft Alaska down the Taiya Inlet! Not only will you hit top speeds and do donuts in the inlet, you will have the chance to spot eagles, harbor seals and learn about our little piece of paradise.
  • Walk or take a shuttle out to the Gold Rush Cemetery and the gorgeous Reid Falls.
  • Time to take flight, literally! Alaska Excursion’s Grizzly Falls Zipline is not for the weak of heart. Their 11 zips (one measuring longer than 2 football fields) will take you soaring above glacially fed waterfalls at up to 45 mph.
  • End your adventures with authentic Alaskan barbecue at the The Salty Siren: Eats & Tap House. Enjoy locally, responsibly sourced seafood & wash it all down with a handcrafted microbrewed beer from the Skagway Brewing Company!

For the Leisure Lover

  • Start your morning by riding the Iconic White Pass and Yukon Route Railway. The Railway is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, a title shared with the Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty! If you are able, book a seat in their limited Luxury Cars.
  • Board a bus to make your way back into Skagway in hopes of seeing some wildlife, in addition to beautiful views of the White Pass Valley!
  • Time for a cocktail? Enjoy a signature cocktail like Rhubarb collins or Spruce Tip Gin & Tonic at Skagway Spirits  while taking in the spectacular scenery.
  • Finish your relaxing day with a King Crab Feast at The Skagway Fish Company! Try a delicious pint from the Alaskan Brewery as well.

For the Family Friendly

  • Let the kids earn their badge and become a Junior Ranger by stopping by the Klondike Gold Rush National Park Visitor Center. While there, pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Book for a self-guided tour of Skagway’s Historic District.
  • While out walking around stop at Molly Walsh Park on 6th Avenue. Make sure to look for minnows swimming in the creek!
  • No kids day is complete without a sweet treat. Stop in to the Kone Kompany for an ice-cream kone, milkshake,  homemade fudge and assorted candy.

For The Active Lifestyle

  • Start your day off right with a hike to the spectacular Lower Dewey Lake. If you feel like doing a little extra head to Icy Lake or Sturgills Landing from Lower Dewey. Make sure to download a trail map from Skagway.com or pick-one up at the Skagway Visitor Center at 205 Broadway.
  • Next up, a Bicycle Ride with Sockeye Cycle down the White Pass Trail. Retrace the historic gold rush route!
  • After your trip grab a sandwich, bagel or wrap from Glacial Coffeehouse for some fuel for the rest of your day.
  • The Chilkoot Trail Hike and Float with Skagway Float Tours is another great way to get your daily dose of history and exercise at the same time.
  • What better way to finish your day than to treat yourself to a flight of local beers from the Skagway Brewing Company. It is said their Spruce Tip Ale has more Vitamin C than a glass of orange juice… so it is pretty much good for you!
