Jewell Gardens Tours

17 Reviews
Jewell Gardens
Skagway is known as the Garden City of Alaska, and the Jewell Gardens of Skagway is one reason why.

Combining gorgeously landscaped grounds and the Garden City Glassworks, it’s a popular excursion for independent travelers and cruise ship shore visitors alike.

Stroll the gardens at your own pace, or take a guided tour of the grounds. Bulbs and tulips thrive in May, and summertime is a riot of color.

Glassworks tours reveal the mysteries of the art of glassblowing, and offer visitors the chance to have a go at creating their own glass ornament, under the watchful eye of a professional glass artist.

The ‘blow your own’ glassblowing tour and demonstration theater can be combined with a garden tour and organic afternoon tea or gourmet lunch served in the grounds.
