What You Can Expect

Start by boarding the White Pass and Yukon Route railway at Skagway station—trains depart at 7:40am and 12:10pm, and it’s recommended that you arrive at least five minutes prior to departure time.

The 1.5-hour, one-way trip to Fraser passes through gorgeous scenery, the same places that gold prospectors once passed through as they headed into the mountains of the Yukon. Upon arrival at Fraser station, meet bicycle guides who will go over the route back to the Alaska coast.

First, take a short van ride on the Klondike Highway to the summit of White Pass, then hop on your bike for the 15-mile, downhill ride. It’s worth bringing extra layers of clothing for this portion of the tour, as temperatures can be chilly in the mountains. Enjoy views back towards the railway as you ride, with plenty of time to snap photos of the waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, and historic sites along the way, and even crossing over the United States border (don't forget your passport). 

This 4.5-hour train and bike tour concludes at a centrally-located bike shop in downtown Skagway.

This trip is excitment all the way. The train trip must be high on any adventure with stunning scenery, the guys from Sockeye Cycle met us at the summit and set us up for the 15 mile downhill bike ride in these spectacular suroundings. We made several stops for photos with our wonderful guides on our ride to the sea. A Big adventure.

We had previously done the train ride both ways up and back down on our trip in 2009, so we wanted to do something a little different this time. We had taken a bike ride like this in Hawaii last year, so we decided to do this Bicycle Tour. We had a Great Time riding the train up the mountain seeing all the Beautiful sights and then riding/coasting the miles downhill back into town! Most everyone can do this. There was really only one time that you had a small amount of uphill pedaling. Most was level pedaling and downhill coasting and braking! I urge you to try this trip if you want to do something a little bit different. You will have a great time! jc

We had a great excursions on 6/23/17!! We had 8 people in our group 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The team at Sockeye Cycle Company did a wonderful job the entire time. The train ride up was very nice, relaxing, and had some great views lots of picture opportunities. It was quite a bit colder up at the top of the mountain, so be prepared with layers. Our guides Josh and Madi were amazing! My daughter was a bit nervous going down the steeper roads, so she was able to ride in the van and skip the steep roads. Overall, we had a great time and highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I did the White Pass Train and Bicycle Tour on May 22, 2017 and we had an amazing time!!! The train trip up the pass was awesome and the changing landscape beautiful. The narration was very helpful and the attention ahead of time for upcoming sights perfectly timed. The bicycle down from the summit was great! It was very chilly at the top, so layering is a MUST. They provide lots of warm clothing also. Safety is their 1 priority and we felt completely at ease along the journey. We would definitely recommend this tour to our friends and if we are ever in Skagway again, we will do it again.

This was a fantastic trip! The train ride up is scenic and bike down was fun. We had great weather as it was sunny and warm. Our guides Sophie and Erin were helpful and knowledgeable. The downhill was fast and fun. This is a must do trip. Sockeye bicycle had very nice bikes and the train is a classic.

Love this trip and would recommend it. Our guides were great. It was a bit cool. We had beautiful weather. Did the 12:30 tour. The only thing is you are going fast and can't really take int he scenes BUT you do stop along the way.

This tour was the highlight of my cruise. The train up to Fraser was stunning. You really get to see the engineering marvel and spectacular sights of Skagway. After arriving at the Fraser station and cleared Canadian customs, the guides take you away for the bike tour downhill to town. Our guides, Ryan and Annie was really fun. They really seemed to enjoyed their job as guides. And through the ride we stopped periodically for photo and to regroup. I only wished I knew how cold it was going to be going downhill with the wind in your face really reminds you that this is Alaska.
