Situated in southeastern Alaska, Skagway is a small town that became known in the late 1800s due to the Yukon gold rush. This town in the northern part of the Alaska Marine Highway System continues to thrive on tourism. The natural beauty and history of Skagway draw thousands of tourists yearly. To make the most of a visit or a holiday, be sure to book a tour package from a reputable Skagway tour company.

Enjoy a Day Tour of Skagway:

Don’t have a lot of time? Some companies can cover a day tour in six to seven hours. A good private day tour to Skagway must be short and comprehensive. It must provide you with a fantastic way to explore and discover the Yukon and the best of Southeast Alaska in a short period. An ideal itinerary may take you north out of the town to the Whitepass, then through the Alpine environment as you cross into Canada. It may continue to the Boreal Forest of the Yukon, the earth's northernmost forest. Some tour companies include visits to Emerald Lake and the Sand Dunes, the Native American Village of Carcross, and to Caribou Crossing Trading Post where you can pet husky puppies and enjoy sled dog rides.
