This route links the port of Skagway with Whitehorse, Yukon. Unfortunately, we didn’t go all the way into the Yukon, but we were able to get up to White Pass, which is on the border of Alaska and British Colombia. Our train ride was about a 20 mile trip from Skagway to White Pass, and then another 20 miles back down. The elevation change is pretty grand – going from 33 ft. in Skagway to 2888 ft. in White Pass.

The passenger cars are comfy and have big windows for easy viewing of the beautiful vistas you pass by. Passengers are even allowed outside of the cars on a small platform for better viewing (and better photography). The landscape changes seemingly with every half mile. You will see rivers, mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, and more.

We booked this excursion through our Alaskan cruise, but you can also book it independently, if you want. The trip lasts around 3.5 hours, so there is plenty of time to wander around Skagway afterwards.

What a fantastic experience. The history of the area, the decor made you truly feel as though you were panning for gold. The 6 hour excursion with several stops was breathtaking in a comfortable coach car. To hear the history along with the tragic stories of those searching for gold was a memory for sure.
