Skagway Cruise Port

Nowadays Skagway is a scenic Alaskan cruise port, but 100 years ago it was the rough and ready gateway to the gold fields of the Klondike.

The gold-era history is tangible in Skagway, where downtown’s restored buildings form part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, and give the town a Wild West flavor.

Stroll the frontier-style wooden boardwalks and the main street, Broadway, lined with clapboard buildings, overlooked by snowcapped peaks and trotted along by old-style horse-led carriages.

Souvenir shops sell gold nuggets, crafts, artwork and curios, and popular cruise passenger tours head off to the Jewell Gardens and Glassworks. For destinations further afield, tours follow the Skagway River to Lower Dewey Lake.

The White Pass & Yukon Railroad narrow-gauge railway line climbs to the White Pass summit, following the route that took the pioneering gold miners to Whitehorse and the Yukon at the turn of the 20th century.

Practical Info

The Skagway cruise port is at the bottom of Broadway, the town’s main street. Another dock is adjacent bordering the Lynn Canal.

Once you leave the ship, just follow your nose along Broadway and you’ll soon be in the heart of town.
