After a visit to Carcross by coach from Skagway, we caught the train back. The train was smart and clean, a welcome change from riding the tube in London 5 days a week ! Organization was efficient and plenty of staff engagement so everybody knew what was going on. The trip itself was spectacular scenery, from the lakes and high... More

This is a must do trip. It's 3 hours. If you have a choice, go later in the day to allow for any fog to burn off. Fog is occasional, not guaranteed. The best view going up is the left side ion the back. You must switch sides going down. You can step out and take pics from the balcony... More

Chilkoot Tours from Skagway was excellent. We were met at the ship and transported to the station, with a quick tour of town. There was no fog at 7:30 in the morning in early July. There was good commentary on the train and it was enjoyable. You couldn't hear it on the back platform so you had to stay inside... More

I actually took my trip at the end of May 2013, a bus-train trip from Whitehorse to Skagway and back. The train ride is amazing and photo opportunities are endless. Make sure to stand out on the platform of your coach to see the train going around the many curves. I was lucky enough to see the steam engine #73... More

It had rained early morning in Skagway and we didn't get off ship until after lunch. Train leaves from the end of dock. Conductor and staff very knowledgeable and made the trip very enjoyable, We has a beautiful sunny afternoon.

We took the train to the top of the mountain where we disembarked to go kayaking in an area of British Columbia. You pass into Canada on the ride up the mountain which is very beautiful. The train ride itself is spectacular and you can book it yourself from town but it is a 15 to 20 minute walk there.... More

Fantastic views well worth the money, great souvenir package as well! You can walk in and out of the carriages and stand outside and it is just breathtaking! The most amazing streams and scenery on way up and the most amazing heights and bridges to cross!!! Just brilliant :))

This is a must if you are going to Alaska, you will not be disappointed. From the time that you get onto the train, which is located right at the cruise ship dock, you will see these beautifully restored carriages, with gleaming green and yellow electric locomotives up front. In each carriage there is a very informative system to give... More
