Transportation from Skagway

Q:We are traveling northbound through the Inside Passage in late June and need to get to Anchorage or Homer from Skagway. What would be the best way to do this?
A: Unfortunately, there are no car rentals that we are aware of from Skagway but you can rent a motorhome in Skagway and return it in Anchorage. Visit our Alaska RV page for more information on renting an RV in Alaska. The only other option is to fly from Skagway to Juneau, then connect on another flight to Anchorage.
