One of our top recommendations for things to do in Skagway actually isn’t in Skagway! We love Yukon day trips because Skagway provides one of the rare opportunities to get on a highway and explore the interior. There are no roads in or out of Juneau or Ketchikan, so it’s no surprise that many use this opportunity to get off the coast. The narration provided by the local guide along the way paints a great backdrop of the history and atmosphere of the Klondike Gold Rush over a century ago.
We also love the sense of local flair found in Carcross that isn’t found in the port towns. It provides a slightly different experience and a glimpse into a still remote and vast land. Rounding the day off with time at Emerald Lake and return journey Skagway caps off one of the most thorough Skagway excursions at a great value.
You may consider upgrading to the Yukon Discovery and Sled Dog Tour which includes all the same features plus a 30-minute husky dog experience. This includes a ride on the trail, as well as a question and answer session with the local mushers.
And for another Historical Experience in Alaska, take a look at the Whale Watching, Mendenhall Glacier, and Juneau City Tour in Juneau, or the Totem Bight State Historical Park & Rainforest Canoe out of Ketchikan!

Perfect day with a great guide, Michael. It's a great way to learn about the area & see the amazing sites. Lunch was yummy with a special treat of homemade donuts! Plenty of stops for pics & up close viewing. Great tour!
Great tour, scenery was fantastic good feed and the tour guide was happy to answer any questions. Also cheaper tour than booking through the cruise ones.
