White Pass Train and Bike Tour
You board the historic White Pass & Yukon Route narrow-gauge railroad for a scenic hour-and-a-half trip through the coastal mountains to British Columbia, Canada. There you meet your professional guides, versed in the ecology and history of the area, who take you for a short van ride along the scenic Klondike Highway to the summit of the White Pass.
After a bicycle and safety orientation, it is fifteen scenic miles downhill from the summit to the sea, with no more than six guests per guide! As you coast along the paved Klondike Highway on this 1.5 hour bike ride, you will make multiple stops for photos of the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, cascading waterfalls, awe-inspiring glaciers, majestic mountains, and other historic sites. After your thrilling ride, enjoy time in historic downtown Skagway.

Our trip on the white pass train started with our very knowledgeable guide Jillson. He was very personable and helpful to everyone in our group. The train ride provided very beautiful scenery and many photo opportunities. My only suggestion for the train ride would be to have a few stops for photos. The individual that was narrating our tour had an excellent speaking voice, it was very easy to hear him and understand what he was saying. When we got to the top for our bike ride down to Skagway, Jillson and Kevin made sure that every one was properly fitted for their bikes as well as informing everyone of the safety precautions. The bike ride was easy as it was all downhill which made it a little boring but the beauty of the surroundings and passion of the area from these two fabulous guides made up for it! I would recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of Skagway and the Yukon Territory by riding a train up and being a little more active on the way down by riding a bike rather than coming down on a bus. I would highly recommend taking this journey with Jillson and Kevin, their passion and commitment to this activity was infectious!
I really liked the train ride.
Our guides were great. 2 guys who loved what they were doing and it poured onto us. Exhilarating ride down the mountain.

I hadn't ridden a bicycle in a few decades. Nothing compares to this ride down the mountain. The views were spectacular, and our tour guides Michael and Michael were so knowledgeable and fun. I would highly recommend this excursion for all ages, shapes, sizes!

We loved Skagway. The train ride was educational and relaxing. The Bide Ride was fantastic. Riding a bike across international borders was unique. We would do this again.
