The lakes of the Yukon and British Columbia that you'll pass along the way are the headwaters of the great Yukon River. This modern two-lane highway is an easy scenic drive.
Skagway is the northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway System. A fleet of modern, car-carrying vessels serves all of Southeast Alaska. Northbound travelers can access the system at Bellingham, Washington and Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Each vessel has an observation lounge, bar, cafeteria and a solarium where camping is allowed free of charge. Mainline vessels also feature stateroom accommodation. Upon your arrival in Skagway, someone from our staff will be there to greet you and bring you to the Klondike Gold Fields.

Skagway has a multitude of recreational activities to offer …
Skagway is at the start of the historic Chilkoot Trail, which follows the footsteps of the gold rush stampeders and ends at Bennet Lake in British Columbia. The Trail (33 mi) is a favorite amongst both experienced and amateur hikers and is said to be the longest museum in the world. In addition to the Chilkoot Trail, Skagway has a world class trail system with a wide range of hiking trails and water routes with varying difficulty.
For the sports enthusiast, Skagway provides many outlets for recreation. The summer softball league is a favorite pastime among seasonal and year round residents alike. In addition to softball, there are several foot and bike relay races throughout the year hosted by Skagway, Whitehorse and Haines. These annual events have continued to grow in popularity and participation, bringing “drive in” and ferry visitors to Skagway from all over the world.
The town celebrates many events during the summer, such as Solstice and Independence Day. Local businesses put on events of their own such as Spring Stroll, Rhubarb Festival and open Mic Nights. Even visit nearby Haines for the Southeast Alaska State Fair and their annual Brew Fest.
Additional activities include camping, fishing, rafting, horseback riding, and photography to just name a few. Staff are encouraged to take advantage of the ferry system and local tour operators to get out and experience all Alaska and the Yukon have to offer!
