This tour operates from May 2 - September 26.

ALL ABOARD! Skagway’s most scenic ALASKAN experience begins with a 28-mile journey between Skagway, Alaska, and Fraser, British Columbia, aboard the Scenic Railway of the World. The White Pass Railway, which was completed in 1900, has a narrow gauge track that takes visitors into the White Pass. Experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, and trestles while listening to historic narration from the comfort of vintage passenger coaches. Climbing up the mountainside, you'll see the extreme changes in vegetation as you pass through several temperate zones before reaching Fraser.

Once a water-stop for the thirsty steam engines and rotary snowplows, Fraser, BC, is now the site of Canadian Customs and Immigration. Upon arrival at the train depot in Fraser, you'll be transferred to a comfortable tour vehicle as you continue your journey into the unparalleled beauty of the Yukon Territory.

Travel to Emerald Lake, Caribou Crossing, Carcross, and Lake Bennett. A piping hot BBQ lunch is included, as well as free admission to the Yukon Wildlife Museum. While at Caribou Crossing Trading Post, enjoy a visit to an authentic dogsled camp and pet the husky puppies!

During your return trip to Skagway, you'll be entertained by professional guides with their amusing stories of local lore and captivating tales of the Gold Rush Era. As you drive down the mountainside, you'll have ample opportunities to take fabulous photos at scenic vistas such as Skagway Scenic Overlook, Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and more.

Since this excursion enters Canada, all passengers must bring their passport or passport card.
