Tour Overview

Your journey begins at the pier where you'll board a motorcoach on a narrated drive through historic downtown Skagway en route to your first stop.

At the Red Onion Saloon, splendidly costumed madams greet you with a souvenir garter and a gold miner's breakfast of eggs scrambled with onions, peppers and cheese along with sausage links and biscuits with butter and honey. Delight in provocative tales of Klondike Kate, Diamond Tooth Lil and other enterprising women who worked the Red Onion in 1898. The madams share hilarious stories of the saloon's more recent, but no less intoxicating history, as they serve you a Red Light Bloody Mary, Klondike Koffee, Mimosa or cocktail of your choice. Step upstairs to the celebrated brothel museum and explore the hallway, bedrooms and priceless artifacts left behind by the "soiled doves" of yesteryear. Enjoy your private visit of this historic site and have your photo taken with one of the madams before this bustling bar opens to the public.

Your journey continues with a scenic drive up the Klondike Highway, paralleling the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad and peaking at the breathtaking summit, some 3,290 feet above sea level.

At the Yukon Suspension Bridge your senses intensify as you walk across a custom-built footbridge dramatically suspended over the rapids of the Tutshi River. Explore museum-quality exhibits and enjoy the fresh mountain air. There are plenty of photo opportunities of spectacular scenery at this breathtaking vantage point.
