Skagway City and White Pass Summit

Sure to be a highlight of your Alaskan experience, the Skagway City and White Pass Summit Tour begins with a guided tour of Skagway's Historic District in a mini-coach holding no more than 32 passengers. Your guide will explain why Skagway was known as the toughest town on Earth during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897-99.

On this Skagway excursion, you will visit historic points of interest such as the Pitchfork Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Bridal Veil Falls are the trailhead for the "Valdez Goat Trail", which is a section of the Trans Alaska Military Packtrain Trail, created during the Klondike Gold Rush.

As you journey up the scenic Klondike Highway, you will travel parallel to the historic White Pass Trail much of the way to the 3,292 foot summit. Along this glacier carved valley are glaciers, thundering waterfalls, majestic mountain vistas and pristine wilderness. Once at the summit, you will descend into the daunting Tormented Valley in British Columbia, Canada. It is this area which inspired the classic authors Robert Service and Jack London. The Tormented Valley is an eco-tone; two separate ecosystems transform to become the other. After visiting this area of 300 to 400-year-old trees known as "Krummholz", many of which are no taller than chest-high, you will return to Skagway.

During your Skagway excursion, various photo stops will be made to help you maximize your Alaskan experience.

PLEASE NOTE: All tour stops are subject to change based on weather and road conditions. This tour will be crossing the Canadian border and then back across the U.S. border. All U.S. and Canadian citizens 16 and older traveling between the U.S. and Canada are required to present a valid passport (or government authorized "enhanced" driver's license, currently issued in MI, MN, NY, VT, and WA.) We recommend you bring a photo I.D. as well. U.S. and Canadian citizens who are 15 years old or younger may travel with a certified birth certificate. People of all other citizenship are required to have a photo I.D., a passport, and visa (if required).

All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Children that are 2 years old or younger are free when occupying an adult's lap. If you would like your child to have his/her own seat, you are required to count them as an adult while booking.

If placed on an 11:30 AM departure, your tour will depart from Downtown, about a 10 minute walk from the pier or short shuttle ride. Full details will be provided in your electronic ticket.

Great excursion

The Skagway City and White Pass Summit is a great and economic way to see the Scenic sights of Skagway and Klondike Highway. The tour guy is very friendly and the only thing is mosquitos and flies in some parts of Skagway.

All the scenery of the train, but with stops and a great guide for a third of the price. Brian, our guide, was outstanding with interesting stories and very knowledgeable about local history, geology, and life in Skagway. Highly recommend!

Great Experience

This was a terrific excursion. The tour guide, Polly was upbeat, energetic and knowledgeable. She knew where to stop for great photos. She even timed one stop so we could see the White Horse train crossing a bridge. The advantage of this tour over the train was that we could make stops at scenic locations. Polly also took time to take each person’s picture at several stops. She could be a professional photographer. Overall a great time. Highly recommend.
