Skagway, Alaska

Skagway offers an authentic glimpse of the Gold Rush era.

Beautifully situated in a valley at the northernmost point of the Inside Passage on traditional Tlingit land, Shgag̱wéi means “bunched up or roughed up water” and refers to the whitecaps that form from strong winds.

Glacier-filled valleys abound outside Skagway, and it’s a great chance to go explore one of these icy blue behemoths by taking a scenic helicopter ride and touching down on one.

With calm waters and scenic mountains, Skagway is a great place to take a sea kayaking tour and look for wildlife as you paddle.

You can also experience the thrill of finding gold firsthand on a gold panning tour, where you’ll eat fire-grilled salmon and learn about Gold Rush history in addition to panning for the precious metal!

This is a must see destination on any Alaskan visit!
