Description

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

Travel in first-class style back in time to the days of the Gold Rush aboard the same train and along the same route that carried prospectors to the gold fields over a century ago. The exhilarating 3.5-hour journey begins at the pier where you board the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad and take a seat inside a comfortable parlor car with leather chairs and love seats. Indulge in refreshments and savory appetizers while listening to your personal guide weave tales of Gold Rush history. The train will steadily climb nearly 3,000 feet over 20 miles of steep grades. Have your camera handy-your car has an expanded outside viewing platform, and the stunning ride boasts jaw-dropping hairpin curves, amazing plunging gorges, sparkling waterfalls, sky-high trestles and the occasional moose or bear. Once at the summit, the train returns to Skagway along the same scenic route and returns you to the pier.
