You couldn't select a better shore excursion. A leisurely ride up the mountains with amazing views of the valley, water falls coming out of the rocks, snow covered mountains.

The train ride was part of a Best of Skagway all-day excursion off the Coral Princess. The bus ride up the Klondike Highway to catch the train at Fraser, BC was spectacular. The train trip down was equally spectacular. Breathtaking scenery!

We only took the train on the White Pass Railroad. We took it one way, and then changed sides and took it back to Skagway. Hope this helps you!
