The White Pass & Yukon Route Rail – Skagway, Alaska

 

Have clients going to Alaska this summer? Don't let them miss out on the premier Skagway experience of traveling the White Pass and Yukon route by rail – especially during Princess’ 50th Anniversary celebration in the great land!

 

Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. Skagway may have boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it wasn't the easiest. Over 100 years ago, the White Pass route through the Coast Mountains was used by countless stampeders.

 

Today, the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway is known as the "Scenic Railway of the World", and links Skagway with Yukon, Canada. A 41-mile roundtrip journey offers an unforgettable day traveling to the summit of the White Pass at nearly 3,000 feet in elevation, featuring breathtaking views of waterfalls, glaciers, scenic vistas and glimpses of the original Brackett Wagon Road and Tormented Valley.
