Car rental options in Skagway

Your options for getting out of town on your own

Looking to arrange your own tour or excursion in Skagway? You can rent a car in Skagway and drive the beautiful Klondike Highway to a number of amazing destinations. Options near Skagway include the gold rush ghost town of Dyea, the spectacular White Pass with its waterfalls and mountains just minutes away, and the historic town of Carcross, Yukon, or dazzling Emerald Lake, the jewel of the Yukon less than 2 hours from Skagway. Or you can set off on an adventure to Whitehorse or Dawson City in the Yukon, or do the famed Golden Circle tour from Skagway to Haines.

Skagway sits on the dead-end spur of the Alaska Highway known as the Klondike Highway, one of the most spectacular drives in the north. From Skagway you can reach all of the rest of the Yukon and Alaska by paved highway or take the Alaska ferry system south to Haines, Juneau or other Southeast Alaska ports. The best of the north awaits when you have your own transportation. And you can take Road Trip Alaska’s Road to Emerald Lake audio tour along as your personal guide to the Klondike Highway.
