For Skagway, we decided to pre-book the White Pass Railway tour! It is a beautiful and very scenic 2.5hour roundtrip train ride up the mountains to the summit and back. The train picks up right at the cruise port.
On the ride, we seen stunning mountains, valleys, waterfalls, old train bridges, and train tunnels that we got to travel through! That was pretty neat!
While onboard, there is commentary about the old Gold Rush days, how it was built, facts, and they also point out beautiful views not to be missed!
Each car has a bathroom, a fire heater, and two by two seats. You are even able to go stand outside on the train car platforms for better views!
Insider tip, don’t worry about sitting on the wrong side on the train. Since it is a round trip ride, the train loops around and goes the same way back. So if you had the mountain out your window on the way up, you will get the scenery on your side on the way back! No seat is a bad seat!
I highly recommend this amazing tour while visiting Skagway!
Stay tuned for my next blog from Glacier Bay National Park. I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
