Skagway has long been a bustling summer hub.  Get the most out of your visit by learning about some of the history and park activities in this short video.

 

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park commemorates the struggles and accomplishments of all who participated in the Klondike Gold Rush. Whether you are a history lover or want to see more of Alaska's outstanding scenery, the park has something for you. Here are some ideas to consider for your time in here:

If you have half a day, begin your tour at the National Park Visitor Center located in the restored 1898 rail depot at 2nd & Broadway.

 

If you plan to spend an entire day, there will be time to add in a hike in Skagway or drive to Dyea

 

With multiple days in Skagway, your options increase.


Note: Passports are required when driving to and from Skagway on the South Klondike Highway and when hiking the Chilkoot Trail.
