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.

To have both experiences (Bus & Rail) on same tour is a great value. I am a Travel Agent and will recommend all my travelers this is the best way to view the White Pass Summit.

my wife and I chose the Emerald Princess just to be able to take this excursion! It far exceeded our expectations. Our only negative comment is that we did not know that we needed to sit on the left side of the train to get the most of the train ride. The bus ride back to Stagway was better that the train ride in that our tour guide stopped at several sceenic points on the ride back to stagway. The only reason I gave it 5 stars is because there were not more stars to award for this excursion.

Wonderful experience; train ride was fantastic and amazing to see. Beautiful country!! Enjoyed the opportunities to stop and take photos.
We had a great time on this tour. The scenery was beautiful and our guide, Jenny, was friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and accommodating. My favorite part was seeing the Alaskan husky sled dogs and holding a sled dog puppy during our stop at Caribou Crossing. Jenny stopped the bus throughout the tour so we could get photos at picturesque places and other landmarks. I definitely recommend this excursion.
This excursion was so fun. It's a little pricey but worth it. Mike, the driver of the bus, was very knowledgeable and funny,funny!!
