Welcome to the Klondike. On this tour, you'll have a fun-filled experience as you take part in your own Klondike Gold Rush. Your adventure begins as you board your motorcoach with a costumed guide for a ride through the historic streets of downtown Skagway to Dredge Town. Once there, learn about the state sport of dog mushing and enjoy a modern sled dog demonstration. You'll also get to meet, and interact with, the dogs and their puppies. Next, gather your supplies for adventure and enter the Gold Rush Training Camp. Learn to extract paydirt, help sluice it and assay the results. Interact with costumed characters and see the Sixty Mile Dredge, used if for mining in the Yukon. Claim your own fortune when you learn the art of panning for gold and practice in warm water troughs. You can count on striking it rich!
