Your adventure begins as you board your motor coach for a ride through the historic streets of downtown Skagway to Alaska 360’s Dredge Town. Once there, meet your musher who will introduce you to the dogs and details of what the state sport is today. Meet the dog team and watch them exhibit discipline and enthusiasm in a demonstration sled run. Your musher will let you see some of the puppies who will melt your heart.


Next, get ready to warm up with a little gold fever. Learn the art of panning for gold with a humorous and educational show that promises to teach you everything you need to know. Practice your technique in warm water troughs. Gold is guaranteed! Once you've hit pay dirt, weigh your fortune with our assayers and visit our Gold Parlor for a selection of mining equipment and nuggets.


Learn about modern mining in Alaska and take a guided tour of our authentic Forty Mile Dredge that once mined in the Yukon.


Explore Dredge Town and enjoy the views of the Skagway River, Harding Glacier, and the Skagway port. Dredge Town is filled with photo opportunities and places of interest


There will be time to shop our very special Alaskan gifts and souvenirs and our Snack Shack for home-baked cookies, drinks, and food.
