What to expect and what not to expect with this Skagway shore excursion
Start the day by boarding the White Pass train right from downtown Skagway for an unforgettable ride to the Summit. Passing towering waterfalls, lush landscapes and glacial creeks, you'll enjoy a sense of Alaska's interior as Skagway affords the opportunity to get off the coast and into the mountains. This is Skagway's most popular train excursion, and eventually you'll cross into Canada and arrive where you'll meet your bicycle guide for stage 2 of this Skagway shore excursion.
