Lake Bennett Scenic Journey Train Ride in Skagway, Alaska

Travel along the same route that the Klondike stampeders traversed in 1898 from Skagway to Yukon Territory by train, followed by a scenic ride along the Klondike Highway to Skagway. This Skagway excursion is a great option to combine the best of your Canadian and Alaskan getaway.

Along the Skagway journey, you will enjoy a 45-minute visit at Lake Bennett. This area is special and unique in that it can only be reached via the White Pass Train or by directly hiking the famous Chilkoot Trail. Once there, enjoy a self-guided walking tour of the Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site and the 1910 Bennett Station historical museum in Bennett.

A hearty turkey sandwich boxed lunch with chips, a side, and dessert is provided along the train portion of your journey between Bennett and Carcross. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available upon request at the time of booking this scenic Skagway tour. You'll spend about 4 hours and 15 minutes on the train, enjoying the picturesque Alaskan scenery as you travel through this beautiful part of the world.

Carcross is located at the foot of Lake Bennett. Once at Carcross, passengers are transferred to a comfortable tour vehicle for a visit to Emerald Lake, the most photographed lake in the Yukon Territory. The approximately 2 and a half hour trip back to Skagway by bus will include various stops which will provide many photo opportunities of the breathtaking beauty of waterfalls, rivers, majestic mountains, vast glaciers, historic sites, and panoramic landscapes. This tour in Skagway is also operated in reverse order with a "bus first" departure on certain days of the week. Book this tour and escape into the heart of history!

Bennett Scenic Journey Worth The. Time
June 21, 2023
Following the trail taken by the stampeders was more interesting than just the beautiful scenery. You got a glimpse into the courage and fortitude of these men. However, the best part of the tour, was the bus ride up to the Yukon and back to Skagway. Our driver Bennet was outstanding. He kept us captivated with stories on interesting individuals and situations, as well as excellent photography stops. He was one of the best guides we had on the entire Alaskan tour.

Train was sooooo cool!

We absolutely loved this excursion, the train was so cool. We took a van up to the Yukon, our driver was so awesome, she made a lot of stops on the way so we could take pictures. We got on the train They served us a box lunch with sandwich, chips and a cookie bar. Very nice! Going to the Yukon was cool, the only complaint I have is I wish we could have stayed at the little town shopping a while longer before we had to head back down the mountain on the train. The crew on the train did an excellent job narrating. Such a scenic, picturesque photo journey.

This was our favorite excursion on our cruise. We had excellent weather and really enjoyed the views. It was very peaceful and pleasant overlooking Lake Bennett and the lunch was filling. We were able to get great pictures and enjoyed the rushing air between the cars.

It was a wonderful adventure. The train ride was great traveling through the wilderness. The mountains and lakes were beautiful. The last part of the trip was a bus ride with frequent photo stops to take pictures. The train crew and our bus driver were really great guides.
