Skagway, Alaska-port

Skagua, as it is known by the Tlingit, means” windy place.” Skagway, a place of many names, and much history is the northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway. It was known to thousands of hopeful gold rushers as the gateway to the gold fields. Skagway retains the flavor of the gold rush era and the character of such colorful inhabitants as Soapy Smith “King of the Frontier Con Men”; especially on Broadway, with its false-front buildings, and in the Trail of ‘98 Museum, with its outstanding collection of gold fever memorabilia.

    Capture the beauty of the Klondike in an exciting new way during this Chilkoot Trail hike, and a rafting adventure on the Taiya River.

    This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.

    Depart the pier for a walking tour along the Chilkoot Trail, and on to the Taiya River. The centerpiece of Skagway's Gold Rush history, the Chilkoot Trail was once the main route to the riches of the Klondike. Today, the trail is a tranquil place of incredible beauty. During your hike, you will wind your way through the lush rainforest, which abounds with wild flowers, edible berries, birds and animals, and crosses streams filled with spawning salmon.

    The slow pace of your hike will allow for plenty of photo stops. Throughout your hike, your guides will provide you with an entertaining mixture of natural history and Klondike folklore. Upon arrival at the banks of the Taiya River, your fun-filled, 40-minute rafting trip will begin at the tidal estuary. You will ride past fields of beach greens and wild iris, then watch as the fjord's granite walls rise steeply to snow-capped peaks with hanging glaciers. Eagles and seals may be spotted patrolling the mouth of the river for salmon.

    Your tour will conclude with a stop along the river. Here, you will have an opportunity to take in the spectacular panoramic beauty of your surroundings while snacking on homemade cookies and hot drinks.

    Following your visit, you will return to the pier.

    Please note: This tour involves 2 miles of hiking over uneven terrain that is very steep and narrow in spots. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition. The raft trip has no whitewater. The minimum age to participate on this tour is seven years old. Wear a warm jacket and hiking shoes, and bring a hat, gloves and insect repellent from the ship.
