If you can pull yourself away from Skagway’s intriguing gold-rush history, you’ll find the town is also an incredible jumping-off point for outdoor adventures. You can choose from a huge variety of options for exploring the surrounding wilderness, like a paddling trip to Davidson Glacier or a hike along the nearby Chilkoot Trail. To get your adrenaline pumping, check out a local zip line tour that lets you soar through the evergreen canopy and across a glacier-fed river at speeds of up to 72 kilometers (45 miles) per hour.
