Make Skagway your base to follow in the footsteps of the Tlingit people and the gold prospectors who headed off from the port to the Yukon in the 1890s. Tour the century-old buildings of the restored downtown, visit a saloon, and ride the gold train to the summit of White Pass.
Whitehorse, Y1A 2C6
There are three major ways to reach the Yukon Territory: by ferry, you enter through Skagway and Haines; by car, you can reach the territory by the Alaska Highway from Dawson Creek, B.C., and by the Stewart-Cassiar Highway from northwest BC, which that joins the Alaska Highway near Watson Lake.
You can reach the town of Whitehorse from BC by bus. From there a patchwork of companies provides links to Skagway and Dawson. The Alaska and Klondike highways are paved and have services every 60 miles (100 kilometers) to 120 mi (200 km).
