The historic gold-rush town of Skagway marks the northern end of your ferry travel on this route. Before leaving town, be sure to visit the many restored historic buildings and museums that are all part of Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
Skagway was a gold-rush boomtown – the place where prospectors bound for the Klondike disembarked and started the overland journey north. The entire downtown area is part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, and several museums and facilities offer historical insight through photos, films and artifacts. Take a ride on the narrow-gauge White Pass & Yukon Route railroad, built in 1898 and now designated as an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark and be amazed by the route its builders carved out of the mountainside in their quest for gold.
