What to expect and what not to expect with this Skagway shore excursion

Now, for the first time, we are offering this private Emerald Lake train tour to those looking to take in the absolute best that this area has to offer. We know that most may never make it back to this area, and this tour packs the best into one comprehensive day trip. It spans the entire 67.5 mile White Pass train route, bypassing the typical Summit turn-around and continuing on even further into Carcross, Yukon. If you're researching Skagway tours, then you've undoubtedly heard about the White Pass train, a historic, narrow-gauge railroad that climbs up and over White Pass Summit and meanders into Canada's Yukon Territory. It's universally accepted as one of those "must" activities in terms of things to do in Skagway Alaska, and with good reason.

  • Journey further than typical Skagway train tours, see Yukon Territory
  • Meet a private guide and vehicle in Carcross
  • Combination train AND bus tour
  • Lunch included at Lake Bennett, bottled water included
  • This train is not equipped with a wheelchair lift

Rather than retracing the same track back to town as the majority of the Skagway train trips do, this tour is paired with a guided tour in a private vehicle that gives guests a different perspective, includes an informative narrative from a friendly guide and explores more scenery making this combination tour the best Alaska train experience available. Stops at Emerald Lake, Carcross, and views of Yukon's Southern Lakes Region are all added bonuses on this Skagway shore excursion.
