Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Allowing you to make the most out of your day in Skagway, this afternoon adventure begins with a scenic motorcoach ride along the Klondike Highway, paralleling the route used by prospectors during the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. You'll ascend to the 3,290-foot White Pass Summit, while your knowledgeable guide captivates you with tales of the hardships endured by earlier travelers in their quest to reach the interior. At the summit, breathtaking views surround you as you pause to relish the experience and photograph the majestic mountains, cascading waterfalls and epic glaciers.

Your ride continues as you travel just a few miles north to the famous Yukon Suspension Bridge. Some of the most magnificent scenery on earth greets you when you step outside. Breathe in the pristine air and feel the thrilling sensation of a swaying walkway 57 feet above the churning rapids of the Tutshi River (pronounced TOO-shy). Observe Mother Nature in all her glory from the main platform, then walk through the museum-quality displays that detail the area's unique human and natural history.

By now you've worked up an appetite, and the hearty salmon bake buffet at the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp is sure to tame even the hungriest beast. Savor wild Alaska salmon grilled over an open alder wood fire, baked chicken, a variety of salads, beans, rice pilaf, cornbread and dessert while stepping back in time in a recreation of a tent city from 1898.

After your meal, wander through the Liarsville camp, so named for the tall-tales that journalists reported from the area during the excitement of the Gold Rush. You'll find plenty of unusual souvenirs in the rustic-style general store. Feel like an early prospector as you peruse the saloon, bordello and relics from a bygone era. You may return directly to the ship or be dropped off in Skagway for independent sightseeing and shopping.
