What You Can Expect

Skagway Shore Excursion: White Pass Summit Tour

White Pass Summit Excursion

After port pickup from Skagway, your comfy coach takes you along the Klondike Highway to White Pass Summit. Your route parallels the White Pass Railroad, built in 1898, as you ascend 3,292 feet (1,003 meters) in elevation.

Marvel at the rugged terrain that changes from waterfalls, rivers, mountains and glaciers to alpine tundra near the White Pass Summit. You’ll also travel through a stunted 300-year-old forest. These remote landscapes inspired nature-loving authors like Jack London and Robert Service.

As you listen to your informative guide about the history of the Alaskan gold rush, keep watch for wildlife, including caribou and bears.

During the return journey to Skagway, stop at the ‘Welcome to Alaska’ sign and take a photo as a souvenir of your travels in the Alaskan wilderness.

Your 2.5-hour shore excursion ends with transport back to Skagway port.

Please note: You must bring a valid passport as this tour takes you into Canada.

This tour was great! We thought we were booked the train trip, but after we went on this trip we realized it was much better and cheaper! We made many stops, got off the bus, walked around, took photos, went to the grave yard, past the Canadian border,etc..

We were met at the cruise ship by a friendly lady who instructed us where to pick up our tour bus and the name of our driver guide (Kevin) who was equally friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour. We were given interesting information, shown lovely scenery and he definately went the extra mile. My Husband and I would highly recommend this tour. Skagway and its surroundings are a great place to visit. We did not do the optional gold panning aspect of the tour.

We saw Boo Boo bear on the side of the highway munching and posing! Scenery impressed us as well as Reid Falls. Humorous stories at the cemetery added to the tour. Lots of photo ops,a nice touch. Beware of biting swarm of some little flying things when waiting for bus. Fun time
