Start by boarding the White Pass and Yukon Route railway at Skagway station—trains depart at 7:40am and 12:10pm, and it’s recommended that you arrive at least five minutes prior to departure time.
The 1.5-hour, one-way trip to Fraser passes through gorgeous scenery, the same places that gold prospectors once passed through as they headed into the mountains of the Yukon. Upon arrival at Fraser station, meet bicycle guides who will go over the route back to the Alaska coast.
First, take a short van ride on the Klondike Highway to the summit of White Pass, then hop on your bike for the 15-mile, downhill ride. It’s worth bringing extra layers of clothing for this portion of the tour, as temperatures can be chilly in the mountains. Enjoy views back towards the railway as you ride, with plenty of time to snap photos of the waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, and historic sites along the way, and even crossing over the United States border (don't forget your passport).
This 4.5-hour train and bike tour concludes at a centrally-located bike shop in downtown Skagway.
