White Pass Summit Train and City Tour

Begin your day in Skagway, Alaska with an overview of Skagway's historic downtown area. Your tour guide will show you everything that makes this little city so charming.

Then, fall under "The Spell of the Yukon" with the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad. Departing from Skagway, your train will make the approximate 2 hours and 45 minutes round trip journey, following the Skagway River up to the White Pass Summit.

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this Scenic Railway of the World was designated as an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark (along with the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty). The three-foot wide narrow gauge railroad climbs almost 3,000 feet in the first 20 miles, with an average grade of 2.6%, and up to 3.9% in some locations. It also passes through two tunnels and travels over sky-high trestles and bridges. Comfortable restored and replica passenger coaches are pulled by vintage diesel locomotives. Each heated passenger coach has large viewing windows and a restroom.

Please note: Passports are not required for this tour.
