White Pass and Yukon Railroad

Taking a ride on the narrow-gauge White Pass and Yukon Railroad is a fun way to see spectacular historic scenery from a train inching up steep tracks that were carved out of the side of the mountains. A number of routes take you through White Pass, which travels from Alaska to Canada on historic trains.

You begin your journey on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad in Skagway. The summit excursion takes you 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Skagway to the White Pass Summit, 2,865 feet (873 meters) high. Another trip takes you up to the summit, then down to British Columbia. The historic cars are more than 100 years old, and you’ll definitely get a sense of how travelers in the late 19th century got around. While you’re traveling you’ll see breathtaking mountain and forest vistas – you may even see a bear or caribou frolicking about.

Practical Info

All trains for the White Pass and Yukon Railroad depart from Skagway, about four hours north by ferry from Juneau. Ferries take equipment, freight, and passengers through the Port of Skagway, then via road with a few of the stops. The summit excursion takes about 3 hours; other excursions take longer. The best time to go is in summer, but be sure to book well in advance.
