After pickup from your downtown Skagway hotel in the morning, drive by mini-coach along the scenic Klondike Highway before hopping aboard a replica vintage Gold Rush-era passenger train for your 68-mile (109-km) journey to Carcross in Yukon.

You'll travel along the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway. Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this railway was designated as an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, along with the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty.

Stop for a visit at the restored 1900s Bennett Station House, which has recently been transformed into a museum, nestled in an area only accessible by train. Here, you may take a self-guided walking tour.

Afterwards, enjoy lunch on board the train between Bennett and Carcross (see itinerary for a sample menu).

As your train journey continues to Carcross in the Yukon Territory, you can hop off to visit the Matthew Watson General Store -- the region's oldest operating store -- or enjoy a short stroll through historic Carcross.

You’ll then be driven to Emerald Lake for a brief visit of what’s arguably the most photographed lake in Yukon!

During your return to Skagway, your professional guide will entertain you with stories about Skagway and the Gold Rush Era as you take in views of cascading waterfalls, roaring rivers, majestic mountains, glaciers and historic sites.

When the train arrives at the station, you’ll be taken back to your Skagway hotel.

This was a magical experience. We were in the last car with a balcony on back. The ship tour would have put us in one of the middle cars. We were able to go outside on the ride and see AMAZING sights. I highly recommend this tour.
