This excursion combines a trip over the Klondike Highway with a ride on the White Pass & Yukon Railroad, leaving you time for further exploration during your visit to Skagway. This tour is presented in multiple foreign languages simultaneously.
Your experience begins onboard a comfortable mini-bus whose large picture windows afford spectacular views as you travel through Skagway and north along the Klondike Highway up through the West White Pass in the St. Elias Range. This is the highest coastal range in the world, and one of North America's most scenic mountain roads. Your guide will tell a century's worth of White Pass stories, and there are plenty of landmarks along the way including Dead Horse Trail, the old Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls and Moore Bridge. Photo opportunities of numerous glaciers and peaks abound.
Upon arrival at Fraser, British Columbia, you'll board a vintage narrow gauge railcar for your trip aboard the world famous White Pass & Yukon Railroad. The train takes you through the opposite side of the Pass, and down the other side of the canyon, with new breathtaking panoramas of mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls back down the grade to Skagway.
