Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your adventure begins with a 22-mile motorcoach drive up the scenic Klondike Highway to Fraser, BC.
At the White Pass & Yukon Route station, board a vintage railcar for a ride on "The Scenic Railway of the World." See the original Klondike Trail of '98 worn into the rocks and gaze in awe at the incredible scenery complete with waterfalls, rushing rivers, trestles and tunnels. Debark the train at Denver Station, gear up and prepare for your forest adventure with a short safety briefing.
You'll set off on a five-mile roundtrip nature hike through the glacially carved valley of dense, temperate rainforest. The route traces the raging East Form of the Skagway River and throughout the trip, your guides will provide information about the region's unique natural history. Watch for wildlife – this remote valley is home to bears, mountain goats and moose. Photo stops by the river and at Denver Falls will be highlights of this perfect mix of exercise and natural beauty.
After the hike, reboard the train for the journey back to Skagway.
