Ascend into the beautiful mountains on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad. From an old-fashioned narrow-gauge railcar, you will see incredible scenery as your tour guide shares the history of the Klondike Gold Rush.

 

In Fraser, British Columbia, embark a deluxe motor coach to travel the spectacular Klondike Highway, taking in the sights of Tormented Valley and Pitchfork Falls along the way.

At the foot of the pass, next to a waterfall, you'll find the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp & Salmon Bake. A cast of sourdoughs and dancehall girls will entertain you with a hilarious melodrama and poetry by Robert Service, and teach you the art of gold panning. Then, you will be set free in the Liarsville gold area, where you are guaranteed to find that precious metal.

Lunch consists of baked beans, a variety of salads, cornbread, coffee, lemonade and dessert. After your meal, wander over to the camp and enjoy the waterfall and sights of Liarsville and have your picture taken with one of the dancehall girls.

 

Back in Skagway, you will visit the world-famous Red Onion Saloon and brothel in historic Skagway. The Red Onion's Madams will fill your glass with Alaskan Amber beer, wine, or root beer and entertain you with tales of the girls who used to work in these historic rooms. See the priceless silver dress worn by the Onion's first Madam, and many other original artifacts left by the 'soiled doves'.
