Bennett Scenic Journey

Escape into the heart of history!

Travel 67.5 miles by train between Skagway, AK, and Carcross, YT, along the same route that the Klondike stampeders traversed in 1898! Couple that with a motor coach tour along the scenic Klondike Highway to complete your 120 mile round trip excursion.

Enjoy a 45 minute layover in scenic Bennett, BC. Only accessible via the White Pass train or by hiking the world famous Chilkoot Trail. Experience the 1903 Bennett Station and stroll through our historic museum. Take the self-guided walk along the trails and tour the historic gold rush town-site.

A hearty boxed lunch will be served on board as the train travels the length of Lake Bennett and arrives in Carcross, YT.
