Where Earl Grey meets Eddie Bauer® would be a good way to describe the charms of Alaska's capital city. Here the pioneering spirit lives on in an interesting mix of cosmopolitan chic and frontier ruggedness. Visit the Alaska State Museum and its exquisite collection of Russian Orthodox and Gold Rush relics.
From its source on Mount Logan in the Yukon Territory, Hubbard Glacier stretches 76 miles to the sea at Yakutat and Disenchantment Bays. The longest tidewater glacier in Alaska, with an open calving face over six miles wide, the Hubbard Glacier is also one of the most active glaciers of its kind in Alaska. These glaciers calve when giant pieces of ice crack off the head of the glacier and fall into the sea. While the faces of most glaciers advance very slowly if at all, Hubbard is an exception, its face is continually moving farther out into the sea.
Cruises are designed to provide passengers with the best viewing possible anywhere and you'll be able to see this massive natural wonder with its 1,350 square miles of blue ice from just about anywhere onboard.
Rich in Gold Rush history, Skagway is home to the origin of the Chilkoot and White Pass trails, Gold Rush Cemetery, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, Trail of '98 Museum, White Pass and Yukon Route narrow-gauge railroad and the Skagway Historic District.
Skagway at the northern tip of Lynn Canal was one of the preferred routes to the Yukon for the Klondike Gold Rushers.
The Historic District is the heart of downtown Skagway, where visitors walk along boardwalks lined with false-fronted buildings. Walking tours and interpretive programs of the historic area are available at the visitor centre. The district and other local attractions are on the National Register of Historic Places.
