Skagway (Alaska) cruise port

Skagway is also the northern terminus of Alaska Marine Highway (abbre AMH, state-operated ferry service). The settlement was familiar to thousands of gold rushers as the gateway to the Alaskan gold fields. It offered the shortest route to Klondike, but it was far beyond from being the easiest one. The gold rush was a blessing for Skagway and by 1898 the town became the largest in Alaska (with population around 20,000). When in 1900 the gold yield dwindled, Skagway's population of mostly miners shifted to Nome.

To serve the tourist influx during summer, Skagway's population doubles. Port Skagway is a among the most popular Alaskan cruise ship stops. For mainly tourism purposes is operated the White Pass Yukon Route (abbrev WPYR) gauge railroad. This service runs throughout the summer months only. The railroad is also used for shipping copper ore from Alaska's interior.

Of all the tourists (around 1 million annually), roughly 3/4 are cruise ship passengers. Most tourists come here to visit the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, as well as for the White Pass and Chilkoot Trails. The town has a historical district with around 100 gold rush era authentic buildings.
