This was a great excursion. We saw bear on three separate occasions on the trip. We took the bus up to the Yukon to Caribou Crossing and then road the train back down. I am terrified of heights so I didn't look at too much of the scenery on the train ride since much of it was looking straight down from the side of a mountain, but my husband did and enjoyed it. Our tour guide on the bus ride up was Heidi and she was excellent. Overall it was a great day. Read Less

I have taken this train ride four times, and each time was different scenery. It is so beautiful! Each car has a bathroom, and there's a rear viewing platform that you can stand on to take pictures outside. I love being in the last car if I want some unique photos or a movie. They offer a souvenir package for sale that is nice to have: a well-made cap with emblem and the DATE (the dated hats are only available on the train).... a hi--def DVD of the entire ride... and a scenic booklet. This package has been $20 for years. There is also a guide and commentary. Usually at the top there is still snow, and the mountains are breath-taking. You may -- or may not -- see wildlife. We have seen bears and ptarmigans on most trips. These are old cars with strong diesel engines pulling the train... BUT it does go slow going up. It's quite a climb. I love this shore excursion, but don't go if you are afraid of heights. At some points you can look out the window... and it's a LONG way down. Read Less

Took the train up and the bus down. Best of both worlds. The train leaves you off in Canada. On the trip down, the bus stops at a couple of places for good picture ops. The bus returns you back to the middle of town or back to the ship. Get off in town. There is so much to see. You don't have to shop. There are several free museums. Also a 5 N 10, Morgan Lindsey store. The walk back is a bit much, at 71, by the bus will take you back for $ 2.00. Read Less
