Discover what the Gold Rush was like on this 2-hour gold-panning tour from Skagway. After hotel pickup, head to Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, located at the base of Alaska’s White Pass, beside a waterfall.
Upon arrival, fuel up with an alfresco buffet feast in the forest, fare that includes wild, Alaskan-caught salmon grilled over an alder-wood fire. Then, browse through authentic exhibits of Liarsville’s history in the Gold Rush–era trail camp.
Learn about the origin of Liarsville’s name, and hear some of the tall tales written by journalists who ventured to Alaska during the Gold Rush. Check out the historic bordello and the laundry tents for glimpses of antiques and vintage clothing left behind by the miners and the ladies of the night.
Inside the Hippodrome, a cast of 'sourdoughs' and 'dance hall girls' enacts hilarious melodrama and a poem reading for your entertainment. Later on, snap a photo with one of the dance hall girls or the camp's beloved dog mascot, an Alaskan malamute.
Time to pan for gold! Learn the art of finding this precious metal before you’re let loose in the Liarsville gold fields on your own. After you've made your fortune, make a stop at the Fancy Goods store to pick up souvenirs. Enjoy complimentary cookies and apple cider before you’re driven back to your Skagway hotel.
