After port pickup in Skagway, a mini-coach whisks you along the Klondike Highway to the train station.
Step aboard a replica vintage Gold Rush–era passenger train. During your 68-mile (109-km) journey to Carcross in the Yukon, you’ll journey along the same route of remote wilderness taken by the Klondike stampeders — including the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway, built in 1898 during the Gold Rush. Learn more about these intrepid travels from your guide along the way.
Make a stop at the restored 1900s Bennett Station House, located in an area accessible only by train. Take some time to independently explore the site that’s been converted into a museum.
Back on the train, enjoy lunch (see a sample menu below) en route to Carcross in the Yukon territory. Upon arrival in the Canadian town, visit the Matthew Watson General Store — the oldest operating store in the area — or stroll through historic Carcross.
Then, stop at Emerald Lake to take pictures of the gorgeous lake, one of the most photographed in the Yukon, before your train heads back to Skagway.
Your full-day shore excursion ends with transport back to port.
Please note: You must bring a valid passport.
