Skagway White Pass Scenic Railway Excursion Reviews

The unforgettable journey on the White Pass Scenic Railway is not just another train ride; built through rugged terrain, the route passes through tunnels and valleys en route to the scenic White Pass Summit.
This was my second favorite excursion.
Sail Date: August 2019
This was my second favorite excursion. We splurged for the luxury train car and was not disappointed.

The one we booked was called White Pass Railway & Klondike Highway Journey.
Sail Date: July 2019
The one we booked was called White Pass Railway & Klondike Highway Journey. This required our passport as we crossed the Canadian border and a couple of border patrol officers had to see our passports.

It was enjoyable, but overpriced for the experience. We were disappointed with the inability to take pictures of particular highlights because of the speed of the train and trees that interfered.

The scenery was breath taking.
Sail Date: July 2019
The scenery was breath taking. Our bus driver (Candace) was great. She shared so much history about Skagway and made the bus ride fun. The railway however, was very very long and not too comfortable.

Great train that took us in the mountains and saw a lot of the glaciers. We crossed over into canada for a brief moment. At the highest of the train ride I was afraid to look down. A lot of history i learned on this ride.

This trip goes up and back on the same track so it doesn't really matter which side of the car you sit on. Unfortunately, the weather was overcast and misty so the views were not as good as they would have been on a sunny day. The story of the rush for gold in the Yukon was fascinating and our host made the trip very interesting. They easily accommodated my oxygen equipment. Skagway itself is a colourful town with lots of shops and tourist attractions. Read Less

Took a round trip train ride to the summit and back. Nice pictures at times, and some very cool things to see with tunnels and tressels. Only one side of the train gets to see each direction as all the scenery is on the left side going and the right side coming back. Not much to see on either side until the halfway point to the summit but overall a good time. Read Less
