The train ride was AMAZING - the added Salmon bake (awful), show(a poem), and panning for gold (ridiculous) was a waste of time that we would rather have had in town.

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

Amazing trip. The White Pass railway is a must see. So amazing to think about when it was built and what little they had. The cost is worth it.

This rail experience left from the station and took us to the Canadian border in white pass and back. The scenery was beautiful and there are things you can only see by taking this train ride. The train and cars are old but meticulously maintained. The guide on the train kept us informed about the sights were seeing as well as some history of the area as we made our journey to the pass.
