6. Take a bite of Alaskan fry bread at the Klondike Doughboy
A warm piece of Alaskan fry bread dusted with cinnamon sugar from The Klondike Doughboy is a perfect way to start your day in the port town of Skagway.
7. Dip into Yukon Territory on the historic White Pass & Yukon Route train
Skagway is situated near Alaska’s border with Canada, and a highly recommended excursion while there is to hop aboard the White Pass & Yukon Route train into Yukon Territory. This “Scenic Railway of the World” has a storied history dating back to the Klondike Gold Rush and the mountainous landscape you traverse through is simply gorgeous.
The Yukon Discovery Tour offered by Frontier Excursions is an excellent, convenient option for cruise visitors.
8. Pet the huskies and scarf down donuts at Caribou Crossing Trading Post
If you are like me and would never say no to spending more quality time with Alaskan huskies, the Yukon Discovery Tour has you covered with its stop at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post. You’ll have an opportunity to greet and pet the dogs, and maybe even experience their sled-pulling skills. Also, watch out for (and load up on) Grandma’s donuts.
