See White Pass Summit by Rail

Experience the best Skagway has to offer on this interesting and interactive tour. A ride on the White Pass Summit Rail will take you through history and some of the best natural scenery in the world. This bus and rail combination tour provides a view of the unparalleled beauty of Alaska from two completely different perspectives--one way by train and the other by bus.

Enjoy a relaxing 1 hour and 45 minute train ride from Skagway to the top of the White Pass Summit. Along your journey you will pass Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, the Gold Rush Cemetery, William Moore Bridge & Overlook, Skagway Scenic Overlook, Fraser Train Depot, Tormented Valley, and the "Welcome to Alaska" Sign. You will also make a stop at the Skagway Scenic Overlook to stretch your legs, take pictures, and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the Alaskan wilderness. Please be advised that this Skagway port tour might alternate between operating with the bus portion first or the train portion first.

Please Note: All participants are required to have a valid passport or an enhanced driver's license in their possession. All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

Reviewer: Sandra Baynes
The bus ride up was scenic and our tour guide was knowledgeable. We got a great bear photo! The train back was equally worth the time as part of our day in port. This was an August trip and the weather was great.

Reviewer: David Haug
This should be an essential part of any Skagway visit. To see the actual route the prospectors took really made history come alive. The bus driver/tour guide was a lot of fun and interesting to listen to.

Reviewer: Gary and Nancy Miley
We selected this AACruises excursion over the identical one offered by Princess and were not disappointed. Not only was the cost significantly less, but meeting the small bus to travel up to Canada was easy and the flexible stops for photos were great. The ride back on the train provided awesome scenery. Definitely recommend this excursion.
