Skagway Shore Excursions
Nature, History, or Adventure?
Skagway shore excursions are fun. Here is a photo of a shore excursion to a shore. Many fish died to bring you this photo.
There are dozens of different shore excursions available in Skagway. Choosing from so many Skagway shore excursions can be difficult. When faced with so many choices, sometimes it helps to categorize each selection.
In Skagway, shore excursions can be broken down into three basic categories – nature, history, and adventure. If you figure out which category is more appealing to you and your family, you will automatically eliminate about two-thirds of your options. In today’s blog, I am going to break down this concept to make your life easier. How nice of me!
Skagway shore excursions focused on nature
Nature is cool. It’s full of trees and mountains and wild animals. One of the most appealing attributes of Alaska is its unspoiled wilderness. If you live in Topeka, New York City, or Albuquerque, you probably don’t often see a herd of caribou or northern lights. In Alaska, you can see those two things at the same time. Winning!
Skagway shore excursions focused on nature are very popular so be sure to book them in advance. It’s always exciting to see a bear, moose, or seagull, so bring your camera and a pair of binoculars. Some of the more popular nature-oriented shore excursions in Skagway include the Ocean Raft Wildlife Adventure, Glacier Discovery by Helicopter, and Glacier Point Wilderness Safari.
Skagway shore excursions focused on history
History is full of stuff that happened a long time ago. Humans enjoy history because it’s a reminder that interesting things used to happen all of the time. Skagway is all about history because the town was such an integral part of the Klondike Gold Rush.
Countless gold-seeking stampeders came through Skagway on their way to seek fame and fortune. Fortunately, the miners were very messy people so they left a lot of crap laying around. Today, we get to see that crap and imagine what life was like 120 years ago. Amazing!
Some of our more popular historical shore excursions include the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, The Yukon Discovery Tour, and the City & Summit Tour. These shore excursions all focus on Skagway’s rich history. Remember, those ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it, so be sure to learn about Skagway history or you’ll end up working as a miner in the Yukon.
Skagway shore excursions focused on adventure
Life is often boring. You go to work, clean your house, and watch reruns of Hogans Heroes. The last thing you want to do on vacation to Alaska is to sit around feeling bored. Fortunately, Skagway has a number of adventure tours that will get your blood pumping.
What is adventure? Adventure is defined as “an unusual and exciting experience or activity.” Staring at your cell phone is not an adventure. Neither is watching a movie or going to the bar. The adventure has an air of danger and makes you feel alive. Actually, going to the bar is often an adventure.
Some of the most popular Skagway adventure tours include Grizz;y Falls Zipline, Glacier ATV Tour, and the Helicopter Dogsled Tour. Taking an adventure tour will make you feel…. well…. adventurous?
Every shore excursion is fun, so you can’t go wrong
No matter which tour you choose, you’re going to have a good time. But what happens if you want to experience nature, history, and adventure all in the same day. Well, that’s simple. Purchase three tours!
