Full description
This tour starts in Whitehorse before traveling along the South Klondike Highway to Fraser, British Columbia, connecting with the world famous narrow gauge White Pass railway over the White Pass Summit and into Skagway, Alaska. In Skagway you will have the chance to discover the historic downtown, the gateway for many Stampeders on they way to the Klondike Goldfields. Gold was discovered in the Dawson area by local miners on August 16, 1896, and, when news reached Seattle and San Francisco the following year, it triggered a stampede of prospectors. Learn how some became wealthy, while others weren't so lucky. See the route most took to get to the gold fields, through the ports of Dyea and Skagway in Southeast Alaska, where the Klondikers could follow either the Chilkoot or the White Pass trails to the Yukon River and sail down to the Klondike. This point in history has been immortalized in photographs, books, films, and artifacts. Don't miss out on the opportunity to familiarize yourself with a part of history.
