On this Skagway shore excursion, find out what the Gold Rush was like as you discover the historic village of Liarsville. After port pickup, head to Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, located at the base of Alaska’s White Pass, beside a waterfall.
Begin your adventure with an alfresco buffet feast in the forest, fare that includes wild, Alaskan-caught salmon grilled over an alder-wood fire. Then, check out authentic exhibits of Liarsville’s history in the Gold Rush–era trail camp. Learn more about the tall tales written by journalists who ventured to Alaska during the Gold Rush. Walk by the historic bordello and the laundry tents to see the antiques and vintage clothing left behind by the miners and the ladies of the night.
Enjoy entertainment inside the Hippodrome, where a cast of 'sourdoughs' and 'dance hall girls' enacts hilarious melodrama and a poem reading. Later on, have your picture taken with one of the dance hall girls or the camp's beloved dog mascot, an Alaskan malamute.
Time to pan for gold! Learn the art of discovering this precious metal before you’re let loose in the Liarsville gold fields. When you've made your fortune, stroll through the camp and visit the Fancy Goods souvenir store. Enjoy complimentary cookies and apple cider before you’re driven back to Skagway port.
