How to Spend 2 Days in Skagway

How to Spend 2 Days in Skagway

With two days in Skagway, you’ll have plenty of time to see the town’s historic district and other Klondike Gold Rush landmarks, visit scenic White Pass Summit, and enjoy an outdoor adventure on a historic train, a kayak, or a dog sled. Here are just a few ideas for how to spend two days in Skagway. 

Day 1: Gold Rush Highlights

**Morning:**Start your morning at the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Visitor Center for a quick introduction to Skagway’s history. Then take a free ranger-led tour of Skagway’s historic district or download a self-guided audio tour and get to know the town at your own pace. 

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon exploring the gold rush landmarks just outside of town, including the Dyea Townsite and the Chilkoot Trail, a 33-mile (53-kilometer) trail that led prospectors to the Yukon during the gold rush. For some outdoor fun, combine a hike on the Chilkoot Trail with a float on the Taiya River or a horseback riding adventure. 

**Night:**Step back into Skagway’s gold panning days with a trip to Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, and enjoy a feast of Alaskan favorites such as salmon, rice, and cornbread. The camp also lets you try your hand at panning for gold—and you are welcome to keep any that you find. 

Day 2: Outdoor Adventures

**Morning:**Hop aboard a sightseeing train and head up the scenic White Pass & Yukon Route, or take a bus trip to White Pass Summit, a scenic spot on the Alaska-Canada border. You can also venture into the Yukon Territory on a full-day sightseeing tour or a mountaineering adventure. 

**Afternoon:**If you’re not on a full-day White Pass or Yukon tour, explore the natural beauty that surrounds Skagway on a kayaking, rock-climbing, zip-lining, or dog-sledding tour. Alternatively, if you want to learn more about Klondike Gold Rush history, you can head to the Skagway Museum. Avid gardeners and botanists also won’t want to miss the flowers at the city’s Jewell Gardens.  

**Night:**Continue the outdoor adventures on your final evening in Skagway by hiking along the coast, enjoying the sunset at the Skagway Overlook, or (if you’re visiting in winter) heading out to see the northern lights. You can also take a tour of the Red Onion Saloon, Skagway’s former brothel, and learn about Skagway’s debaucherous past.
