Take an unforgettable round trip journey aboard the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad. Against all odds, this iron trail was built through some of the North's most ruggedly beautiful terrain and more than 110 years later is still in operation.

Ride in a comfortable, restored or replica vintage rail car to the summit of the White Pass, through two tunnels, over sky-high trestles, and remote valleys. Pass Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch as your guide announces all points of interest and tells the story of the Klondike Gold Rush.

At the White Pass Summit at 2,865 feet, a seat exchange will occur, allowing everyone to experience the excellent views during this round trip rail journey.

This narrow-gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. It shares this honor with the Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty, and is truly a world wonder.


The train is wheelchair accessible. Restrooms are located on each train car. Food is not available for purchase on the train. You will not get off the train during the tour. The 4:30pm departure is a shorter duration as there are fewer trains on the pass at that hour. The same distance is traveled, just in less time. Guests will be required to switch sides at the summit to allow all guests to view the valley scenery. Your cooperation is appreciated.
