Enjoy a scenic motor coach ride along the Klondike Highway, paralleling the route used by prospectors during the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. Ascend 3,292 feet to White Pass Summit while your knowledgeable guide will captivate you with tales of earlier travelers and the hardships they endured in their quest to reach the interior.

At the summit, breathtaking views surround you as you pause to relish the experience and photograph the majestic mountains and cascading waterfalls.

On your way back to Skagway, stop at the scenic Skagway Overlook, a photographer’s delight offering a panoramic view of the Skagway Valley, glacier-clad mountains, Lynn Canal and your cruise ship.

Travel to Dredge Town, where you will enjoy an authentic smoked barbecue lunch, consisting of ribs, chicken and various side dishes. Dine inside or outside on either the riverside patio or the rooftop deck with its mountain views.
