Wow! and more wows on this train ride. Great narration of the gold rush and the determination of the miners. The train crosses on a wooden cantilever bridge over a deep gorge. Beautiful scenery and well worth the time.

We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip on the railway. The guide pointed out scenic vistas and told stories about the intrepid men who braved this pass in search of gold. It must have been a strength of both will and physical ability to make it up the pass by foot at the turn of the century. The trip down offered another view on the other side and we got some good photographs, we were fortunate to take the a.m. trip. We had a good view of the harbor from up above. We were told this is not often the case.

If you arrive in Skagway by cruise ship you should enjoy this train ride. White Pass is gorgeous, and learning the history of the pass is very interesting. You get a good idea of the ruggedness of the terrain that the stampeders were dealing with. The train was comfortable, the scenery was fantastic. But, if you drove to Skagway via White Pass, there is no point in spending the time and money on the train.

Beautiful View and breathtaking routes leave us wonderful memories and amazed by the mother nature. Suitable for the whole family with my 2 year old boy onboard. I wish we could record all the way 360 degree to make the memory last in our video forever.
