See White Pass Summit by Rail

Experience the best Skagway has to offer on this interesting and interactive Skagway 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 tour 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.

Reviewer: Joe Hrach
Highly recommend this excursion. We boarded a 20 person van close to the ship with a very experienced driver/guide along the road up to White Pass Summit with many stops along the way. We boarded the train at White Pass Summit and proceeded down to Skagway. The train ride down was also very enjoyable with experienced guide highlighting the history along the route. I highly recommend this excursion.


Reviewer: Don George
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and thought the guide for the day was outstanding. Doubt we will be back (quite far from Australia) but we are telling everyone we know to go and do it!!

Reviewer: Bill McEwen
While the rail trip is justifiably famous, it was the bus ride up to the top that really made it for us. The driver was a great story teller, and a super guide. We were lucky en route to see a mama grizzly and her two cubs, just beside the bus. She wasn't bothered at all by our presence, and we were fascinated. The train ride yields marvelous views that you cannot get anywhere else, although we did miss the ongoing commentary of our great bus driver. Try to get a seat on the right if you're heading downhill. All in all, a nice relaxing way to spend a few hours on a pleasant Skagway day.

The White Pass Summit Rail and Bus Excursion is an excellent value. Everyone should take this tour for the incredible scenery, of course, but they should take the Shore Excursions tour for the variety and the value--lower price than the cruise ship's cost. My understanding is that this tour bought through the cruise ship takes the train both ways between Skagway and Fraser. Taking the train one way and a mini-bus the other allows you to see the magnificent scenery from the train and from the road. You see views and sites from the highway not seen from the train. The bus driver's narration was very interesting, with extra information we didn't hear on the train. Highly recommended.

We were very pleased with this tour. We are glad we chose to do the bus one way and train back. You get to see a completely different aspect of the area. The narrative was excellent on both legs of the trip.
