White Pass Summit Rail and Bus Excursion
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.

I would highly recommend this excursion. The tour guide was really, really good. She answered any questions, gave out restaurant recommendations, and was just great all around. The views were incredible, and the train ride was really great as well. I wouldn't miss this one.

Reviewer: Lydia Friesen
most interesting and drivers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Recommend this tour.
We started the day on the shuttle driving up to White Pass to meet the train. We had a great guide with a wonderful Irish accent! He provided great background information and stories, as well as stopping for photos ops! The train ride back to Skagway was breathtaking....great weather! There was bottled water provided on the train and a restroom!

Pictures just don’t do this ride up the Pass any justice.
