White Pass Updates – Travel Advisories

Fraser Meadows Steam Excursion

The White Pass & Yukon Route has made the difficult decision to cancel all departures of the All Aboard Steam excursion for the 2021 season. The White Pass steam program has been a key piece of our historic operation for many decades, and we know many guests book their trips to Alaska to take part in this iconic excursion. It was not an easy decision to come to, but due to the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, we felt a need to focus on our essential excursion offerings.

We remain dedicated to providing a memorable trip to our guests through our round trip departures to the White Pass Summit as an alternative to the steam excursion. We look forward to 2022 when the steam program can be reintroduced to our product line. Until then we hope all of our friends and guests will be looking forward to traveling to Alaska, Skagway and the White Pass & Yukon Route in the not too distance future.

Ride the Exciting and Authentic WP&YR Steam Train!

No other railroad is quite like the White Pass & Yukon Route. Against all odds, the iron trail was carved through some of the North’s most rugged terrain in 1898. This engineering wonder climbs nearly 3,000 feet in 27 miles of steep grades and cliff-hanging turns.

Relive the glory days of steam while traveling with one of our steam locomotives, Engine No. 73 or No. 69, to the Fraser Meadows Loop! Total of 54 miles round-trip and a duration of 4 hours.

Available Dates: 2022* Schedule TBA
