    Bennett Lake Scenic Journey

    This is a unique Skagway train experience, taking you further along the route than the majority of the train tours departing from Skagway. Whereas many round-trip White Pass railroad experiences climb to the top of White Pass summit and turn around, this excursion explores Canada's Yukon Territory. Coupled with a guided bus tour, enjoy the scenery from 2 different perspectives with fully narrated history along the way. Add all the features of the normal White Pass railroad excursions with a Yukon experience to see more scenery, reach a little further off the beaten path and get different perspective on the return trip back to Skagway. This is an exclusive Skagway train tour offered once a day and has limited seating so advanced reservations are recommended.
