This bus and rail combination excursion affords you an opportunity to view the unparalleled beauty of Alaska from two completely different perspectives — one way by train and the other by bus. The bus portion is more than a mere transfer as with other companies. We offer several stops along the highway route with a guaranteed visit to the Skagway Scenic Overlook — one of Skagway’s most scenic viewpoints!
Skagway’s most scenic ALASKAN experience begins with a relaxing 1 3/4 hour train excursion from Skagway to the top of the White Pass Summit and beyond (this tour is operated in reverse order with bus first departures as well). Travel even further into Canada on this 28-mile journey all the way to the Fraser Train Depot in British Columbia! This is by far the most extravagant display of spectacular panoramic beauty there is to offer in all of Skagway.
Upon arrival at the train depot at Fraser (Canadian Customs) passengers are transferred to a comfortable bus for their return to Skagway while our entertaining guides amuse them with captivating stories of local lore and the Klondike Gold Rush!
With stops all along the way there will be ample opportunities for photo enthusiasts to view and photograph cascading waterfalls, majestic mountains, glaciers, the roaring Skagway River, historic sites and other breathtaking panoramic vistas!
