Frequently asked questions:
Q:So many tours! Where do I start?
We recommend beginning by viewing tours Unique to Skagway to browse experiences not found in Juneau or other port towns. These will provide distinct experiences that you can only find here!
Q:What's the deal with private tours?
Private tours are a great option if you are traveling with a group of 4 or more. With a private tour, it's just the guide and your group. For groups of 6 or more, you may find private tours are even more cost-effective than joining a fixed tour.
Q:What's all this about Yukon?
About 1.5 hours from Skagway, the Klondike Highway crosses into Yukon Territory, Canada. Skagway provides visitors the rare opportunity to get on a road and head inland (not possible in Juneau or Ketchikan). For this reason, Yukon Tours are a great option to get off the coast and see the interior. We believe Yukon Tours have two great features: the chances for wildlife viewing are stronger and the weather is often sunnier than on the coast.
