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 motorcoach tour along the scenic Klondike Highway to/from Skagway for the perfect combination of your Yukon & Alaskan holiday adventures. Bennett, BC is only accessible via the White Pass train or by hiking the world famous Chilkoot Trail. Don’t miss a visit to the 1903 Bennett Station for a stroll through our historic museum. A hearty boxed lunch will be served on board as the train travels the length of Lake Bennett and arrives in Carcross, YT. Come join us on this exclusive and completely unique experience.
This 120 mile round trip excursion features a 45 minute layover at Bennett Station, where passengers enjoy a visit to our White Pass museum and a self-guided walking tour of the historic gold rush town-site. At the end of the layover, passengers will re-board the train and resume their railroading adventure.
