White Pass Updates – Travel Advisories

White Pass Summit Excursion

Experience this unique railroad that symbolizes accomplishment in adventure and pioneering – of triumph over challenge.

Relax in vintage passenger coaches as you retrace the original route to the White Pass Summit, passing Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites. See the original Klondike Trail of ‘98 worn into the rocks, a permanent tribute to the thousands of souls who passed this way in search of fortune.

This forty-mile round trip excursion climbs from tidewater at Skagway to the Summit of the White Pass - a 2,888-foot elevation. The fully narrated tour passes through two tunnels, over sky-high trestles and cascading waterfalls. It’s our most popular rail trip!
