Skagway Super Saver: Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, Gold Mining and Salmon Bake
Tour description provided by Viator
Go back in time to Skagway's exciting Gold Rush era on this two-hour tour. While in the historic village of Liarsville, dine on authentic Alaskan fare, including wild Alaskan salmon. Then visit the authentic gold-mining exhibits and learn how to pan for gold -- you'll keep all of the gold you find! Liarsville Camp is full of history and charm, and you'll have free time to explore all that the area has to offer.
At the foot of Alaska’s majestic White Pass, nestled beside a waterfall, you’ll find Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, so named for the journalists who fabricated tall tales from this location when they were dispatched to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush. On this Skagway tour, discover what the Gold Rush was like as you explore Liarsville.
Your Gold Rush experience begins with an all-you-can-eat alfresco feast in the forest, including wild, Alaskan-caught salmon freshly grilled over an alder-wood fire. After your meal, mosey on over to the Gold Rush-era trail camp. Here, see a picturesque waterfall and authentic exhibits of Liarsville's past. Then head to the Hippodrome, where a cast of 'sourdoughs' and 'dance hall girls' will entertain you with a hilarious melodrama and a poem by the “Bard of the North,” Robert Service.
Next, learn the art of gold panning before you are set free in the Liarsville gold fields to pan on your own. You are guaranteed to find that precious metal that drove men and women wild with gold fever!
When you've made your fortune, you will have free time to wander through the camp and visit the Fancy Goods souvenir store, the historic bordello and the laundry tents to view the antiques and vintage clothing left behind by the miners and the ladies of the night. This is the perfect time to have your picture taken with one of the dance hall girls or the camp's popular mascot, an Alaskan malamute (a type of dog) named Denali. Complimentary cookies and apple cider are available.
