This Extravagant Tour Lets You Experience The Best Skagway Has To Offer.
Relax in an antique parlor car onboard the historical White Pass & Yukon Route railroad. Gaze in awe at the incredible scenery as your train ascends dramatic mountains and your guide shares colorful stories and the history of the gold rush. From the depot in Fraser, British Columbia, board a motorcoach and travel the spectacular Klondike Highway to view the Tormented Valley and Pitchfork Falls.
At the foot of the pass, discover Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp. Here, a cast of sourdoughs and dance hall girls entertain you with a hilarious melodrama and recite poetry by Robert Service, the “Bard of the North.” Learn the art of gold panning and try your luck in the Liarsville gold fields, where you’re guaranteed to find the precious metal that drove stampeders wild. Head to the barbecue for freshly grilled wild Alaskan salmon, baked chicken and a variety of delicious side dishes. After lunch, wander through the camp and have your picture taken with the dance hall girls or the camp’s lovable mascot, an Alaskan husky.
The grand finale of the tour is a visit to the world-famous Red Onion Saloon and Brothel in historic downtown Skagway. The Red Onions’ Madams will fill your glass with Alaskan amber beer, wine or root beer as you are entertained by tales of the ladies who used to work in these historic rooms!
