Travel aboard the world-famous White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad to the 2,885-foot summit of White Pass. This iron trail was built through some of North America's most rugged terrain and still operates over 100 years later. Ride aboard old-fashioned parlor cars as you retrace the original route beyond the summit of White Pass to Fraser, British Columbia.
You will then board a comfortable motorcoach for a journey up the scenic Klondike Highway to visit the magnificent Yukon Suspension Bridge. You'll venture out onto this walkway, high above the churning rapids of the Tutshi River. The outdoor museum and interpretive center will allow you to learn about the plants, animals and geological make-up of this unique region. Enjoy breathtaking scenery from an overlook platform, view the giant 3D map of the region and marvel at the hand-built replicas of historic Klondike-era gold rush boats, while learning about the people of the Yukon.
Continue by motorcoach down the west side of the White Pass canyon back to Skagway. Your driver-guide will regale you with stories of the stampeders who trekked through the pass in search of gold, stopping at picturesque points including the Tormented Valley and Pitchfork Falls. On your return to Skagway, you may choose to stop in town or return to your ship.
