What You Can Expect

Skagway Shore Excursion: White Pass Summit and Skagway City Tour

Skagway Shore Excursion: White Pass and Skagway City Tour

Spend time in port in Skagway breathing in the fresh mountain air and enjoying the great outdoors! Glimpse amazing views of spectacular mountains and coastal rainforests, and see historic landmarks including Brackett Wagon Road, Pitchfork Falls, Moore Creek Bridge, and the WP&YR railroad.

Included is the Skagway City Overlook, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the town, harbor and cruise ships. At the Klondike Gold Rush Cemetery, hear the tale of Frank Reid and "Soapy" Smith and the gunfight that changed the future of Skagway.

Leaving Skagway for the White Pass Summit area, you'll journey along the Klondike Highway which parallels the White Pass Railroad, a popular tourist attraction today. In between visiting historic points of interest, distant glacier views, thundering waterfalls and majestic mountain vistas, you can relive the Klondike Gold Rush with stories from your guide.

Continue traveling parallel to the White Pass Trail and White Pass Railroad, climbing 3,292-feet (1,003-meter) to the summit before descending into the upper portion of the daunting Tormented Valley. The Tormented Valley contains large areas with an almost lunar appearance, making this one of the most unique eco-systems in North America. Explore a forest-tundra ecotone with a stunted forest of 300-year old trees and alpine tundra.

The final leg will be through the Tormented Valley, with a stop at Summit Lake. As you survey the landscape of the White Pass Summit Area, admire unforgiving wilderness that inspired such classic authors as Jack London and Robert Service. Returning to Skagway, stop at the "Welcome to Alaska" sign, the most popular photo stop on this bus tour.

Great tour, very informative. Our tour guide, Ian, was excellent. This tour was much better than the train.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

This was terrific. We were standing at Soapy's grave site when the train went by quite a ways away, with camera's flashing from inside. What a personal experience.
