Here at the Klondike Gold Fields in Skagway, Alaska, you can immerse yourself in the history and beauty of the Klondike Gold Rush. Visitors are transported back to the 1890s as our costumed staff meets, greets, guides, and entertains them. Our site includes everything from gold panning, to Iditarod sled dogs, to an authentic dredge and a chamber where you can experience 40-below temperatures. On site you can enjoy the many attractions and displays including a dress up photo shack, movies, and educational exhibits.

Though there is a grain of truth in some reviews posted here regarding the slightly excessive length of the tour, the overall experience is a real Klondike essence: tiring but rewarding. The tour consists of quite a few diverse activities: 1) The solid American-Alaskan lunch. The self-help choices include ribs, chicken, fried and baked salmon, potatoes, both mashed and fried,...

Coming here, you get the impression the only reason this place continues to exist is for cruise passengers to be mildly entertained and they are not at all dependent on repeat customers. For $40 each, there are three "experiences" available with a micro discount to try them all. The cheapest possible experience at $5 is to watch a DVD on... More

We booked the complete Klondike Gold Fields "Big Nugget" tour through our cruise company. The guide met us right at the end of the pier and we were transported through town on a nice bus. This was our guide's second summer in Skagway and her knowledge of the area was still lacking a bit. That said, we arrived and went... More

We had pre-purchased this tour from the cruise ship. We were able to board a bus, right at the pier and were taken almost immediately for the very short ride to the tour. We had a tour guide on board that was very knowledgeable about the area. We were taught how to pan for gold and then we had the... More

Our visit to the Gold Dredge tour was part of our Yukon White Pass train excursion. It was fun panning for real gold, which they weigh afterwards. Gives you a small taste of what it was like to search for those little specs of gold in pans with dreams of striking it rich during the gold rush.

We purchased this experience through our cruise ship. We waited for our bus in the cold wind for more about 40 minutes, don't know who's to blame for that. We then waited some more at the site for other busses to arrive. There were 3 cruise ships in town that day. I traveled with teenage boys who enjoyed the day.... More
