Good views and nice little train. Good naration on what you see. Journeys up the pass from Skagway to a minor incursion into Canada.

On August 10, 2022 - there was a large mudslide that damaged the port and the docks of Skagway. It has since prevented larger cruise ships from docking there. This has resulted in many, many train cancellations because White Pass & Yukon Route Railway depends entirely on the cruise ship business - not those of us who arrive via car, ferry, seaplane, etc. We are 100% expendable. If a cruise cancels (as most are after August 10, 2022) - your train trip will be canceled. We got less than 20 hours of notice from this company on our *second* cancellation, which was truly unprofessional (especially since they knew this particular boat had no intentions of docking in Skagway). We know for a fact that Norwegian and other cruise ships of that size are not docking in Skagway for the rest of the season, yet - this company keeps taking reservations and then saying "the cruise ship decided not to dock". Well, when Norwegian and other ships of that size have canceled for the last 6 weeks and the docks haven't yet been repaired, it's not a "surprise". You should tell the truth to your customers and certainly with more than 20 hours notice!!! We had to cancel and reschedule our sea planes when our first reservation was canceled. The second cancellation with less than 20 hours notice was a true inconvenience for us and every other business that we had planned on supporting in Skagway. BUYER BEWARE! Also, people on larger cruise ships, guess what, you're not going to Skagway. It simply won't happen, and these decisions have been made weeks ago. If you do go, it will be because you're on a smaller ship that can park in the aft position.

Do not forget your camera for this trip. The views from the train are absolutely stunning as long as the fog stays away. The train carriages are very comfortable and each one has a stove in it to keep the cold at bay. Water is also supplied in each carriage as well as a toilet. It’s also very clean. Tour guides randomly wander through to answer any questions you might have. There is a narrator for the journey but be aware that you can’t hear the narration if you are standing outside.
