White Pass Railroad and City Tour 7:40am
Board a vintage rail car and retrace the original route up to the Yukon's White Pass Summit. The world-famous narrow gauge White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad promises an unforgettable ride along the eastern side of the White Pass as you retrace the steps of early gold seekers. This iron trail was built over 100 years ago through some of the North's most rugged terrain. On arrival at the summit, board a motorcoach for a narrated tour back to Skagway. Your driver/guide will share stories of hardships and daily life struggles the stampeders faced. While following in the footsteps of early gold seekers, you will see the historical areas of Brackett Wagon Road, Pitch Fork Falls, Dead Horse Gulch and the infamous Tormented Valley. Upon arriving in Skagway, you can be dropped off to explore the town area or return back to the pier.
Please read this note if you will be taking this tour as a cruise ship shore excursion. Booking an independent shore excursion such as this tour has many benefits. These trips are typically less expensive than cruise line options, are operated by reputable Alaskan owned suppliers, and often are significantly less crowded. However, they are best suited for independent guests, and most trips require a short walk to a central departure point. If you have mobility limitations, or would just prefer to board your tour dockside, please consider purchasing a tour on board from the cruise line.
