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 guests are required to have a valid passport in order to take this tour.

Our tour guide, Morgan, was just fabulous. So knowledgeable and accommodating. The train ride was wonderful. Breath-taking scenery... the commentary during the trip was fascinating … the hardships and challenges of the 'stampeders'... a great excursion.

Reviewer: Scott
This excursion was good but just not my speed for the price. It was definitely much better than the train ride both ways option. While I realize pricing is out of the booking groups control as even direct train prices are high, its just not worth it for a train ride. The scenery was beautiful and it was one of the few things to do in Skagway but if we were to go again we would prefer to just tour the town. I will say our van driver was phenomenal on the way back down. Id try to get this excursion with the train going up and bus going down if I had to do it again.
