Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · December 03, 2015
Personal knowlegdge of Tpurs?  (1 Answer)

Please, any have knowledge of the following (or others to recommend) tours at Skagway -- Via train one direction, "Yukon Expedition & White Pass." 8 hours for $200 and / or "White Pass Bennett Lake." A bike ride might be tempting also; "Klondike to the Sea," under 3 hours for $115, I believe just about 14 miles. Another one that has caught my attention is a "Animal Planet Exclusive: Kroschel Wildlife Refuge." About 6 & 1/2 hours for $210. Yes this is a 13 hour layover on a Princess Cruise in June. Married couple, around sixty and first time north. Any and all information you care to share appreciated. Thank you.

Gold Rush Cemetry & Ghost Town of Dyea?  (3 Answers)

I'm already taking the Yukon rail to Fraser and then motorcoach to Emerald Lake, Caribou Crossing, Carcross, Lake Bennett and back to Skagway.

I'm trying to decide if I should book another tour that goes to the Gold Rush Cemetry & Ghost Town of Dyea? Are these sights worth another 2 hours and25/person? The alternative would be to just spend time exploring Downtown Skagway by foot.

Thanks in advance!

Train or Yukon?  (3 Answers)

My husband and I are trying to decide between two tours, and I was hoping for some advice as to which one those of you "in the know" you think we should take.
Choice 1: We would take the White Pass Scenic Railway, go to a suspension bridge, and have a salmon bake
Choice 2: We would hike into the Yukon (Tormented Valley, Carcross) and then go do the suspension bridge.

Which one do you think we should take? I'm torn!

I'm Desperate for Summer Housing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP :)  (2 Answers)

Hey People!
I am trying to come to Skagway this summer to be with my lady-friend, and I have a bunch of job options, but NONE that will assist me with housing. I am a school teacher in Florida and I don't finish my school year until June 6'th, which has been a deal breaker with anyone who has housing because the tourist season starts so much earlier than that. I AM DESPERATE for a bed to sleep in. I can't realistically consider camping for the summer, as I have a cpap to plug in at night, so I need electricity, and I unfortunately can't stay with my lady-friend in her employee housing. I am a super clean and respectful 25 year old man, and will share a room. I NEED A HOUSING OPTION. If you know of anyone who could rent me space PLEASE PLEASE help!
By all means email me directly at [email].
I really appreciate any leads here :)
All the best,
Michael Kras.
