This mostly panoramic tour allows you a great overview of Skagway and its surrounding environs.
Boarding your coach at the pier, you head off down Broadway, viewing some of the city's highlights and being entertained with stories of the rough and tumble days of past that have made Skagway what it is today.
Leaving the town behind, you will follow the Trail of '98 up the White Pass as you parallel the famed White Pass & Yukon Route railroad to the breathtaking summit which rises 3,290 feet above sea level. The stories of the long-ago stampeders as told by your driver-guide will thrill you as your route retraces their foot-steps. Along the way, a stop is made at a scenic outlook where you can photograph waterfalls and the original Dead Horse Gulch. You will no doubt be awed by the beauty of the infamous Tormented Valley and the engineering feat of the White Pass & Yukon Route railway.
Returning to Skagway, a final photo stop is made that allows you to take in picturesque views of the town and your ship. Once back in town you have the option of returning directly to the ship or of staying behind to explore downtown Skagway on your own. Those electing to stay in town will be responsible for making their own way back to the pier.
