Located on the Alaskan Panhandle, the small city of Skagway is best known for being the gateway to the Yukon Territory during the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890’s. With only one day to visit, you’ll have time to see historic downtown Skagway and enjoy an outdoor adventure. Here's how.
Whitehorse, Y1A 2C6
There are three major ways to reach the Yukon Territory: by ferry, you enter through Skagway and Haines; by car, you can reach the territory by the Alaska Highway from Dawson Creek, B.C., and by the Stewart-Cassiar Highway from northwest BC, which that joins the Alaska Highway near Watson Lake.
You can reach the town of Whitehorse from BC by bus. From there a patchwork of companies provides links to Skagway and Dawson. The Alaska and Klondike highways are paved and have services every 60 miles (100 kilometers) to 120 mi (200 km).
