I’ve been blessed to have been able to see a few different places in our amazing world and Alaska is one of the most beautiful I have yet to see. We did the shorter White Pass Route and nothing could have been more amazing. We...More

Terrific experience. Our guide, Devious Drew, was informative, friendly, and very entertaining -telling stories, reciting poetry, singing beautifully, and performing magic. Our tour package included panning for gold at Dredge Town, and a visit with Gold Rush Sled Dogs. A full day and my favorite...More
This scenic train ride is one of the must sees when in Skagway. You will learn the history of the Yukon Gold Rush and see the path where people searching for gold went through. Be sure to bring snacks or eat beforehand.
If you have the opportunity to take this trip and can afford to get a ticket in the Luxury Rail Car. It is very nice you have a car that turns so you have views from all side. Also they provides drinks and food.

Hi, I went the other way and took the bus up to Carcross and boarded the White Pass railway train there at the station. The train then took us back to the station in Skagway, which was very close to the ship. I walked back to the ship. My trip included the train and the bus trip. In carcross people that had taken the train there, then boarded the bus to return to the ship. So there were two trips available. Also there were people on the bus that did the train both ways, up and back. But my round trip bus/train trip was all included and arranged as a single trip. Hope this helps.

We were on NCL and booked through the cruise line; we took the morning trip. The tracks run parallel to the dock and it was a short walk to board the train. I overheard people saying that if you didn't book it through the cruise line that you could walk a little further to a ticket booth and that it was cheaper.
After the train ride we were able to pick up a shuttle to downtown; I think it was $5 roundtrip. We had a hard time finding a restaurant for lunch, but some of the places had closed down already for the season. Our ship was literally the last one visiting for the year. There were some cute shops, way too many jewelry stores. There are some interesting historic spots but you have to look for them. I was able to easily find a shuttle bus back to the port.

We booked thru Princess Cruises and picked up the train at the dock in the afternoon. We were first in line and was seated in the back car going up which is great because you can go on rear platform of railcar and take amazing photos. Coming down you are first car after engine.
