Experience the thrill of a historic train ride combined with an exhilarating downhill bike ride on the White Pass Train and Bike tour, one of our best Skagway shore excursions for adventurers in search of stunning natural beauty! Step aboard the historic White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad and wind your way through the magnificent Skagway Valley up to the awe-inspiring summit of White Pass. Then get on your bike and coast back down the Klondike Highway, stopping along the way to take in historic sites, cascading waterfalls, massive glaciers, and bucketfuls of fresh air against the backdrop of the majestic Sawtooth mountain range. Voted one of the best Skagway shore excursions by numerous satisfied visitors, the White Pass Train and Bike tour ranks high in popularity with travelers on Trip Advisor and has received a Certificate of Excellence from the influential travel site.

Begin your journey by boarding the historic narrow-gauge WP & YR railway, built in 1888 during the peak days of the Klondike Gold Rush. Sit back and relax in a vintage passenger carriage as you retrace the original route to White Pass Summit, passing Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point, and Dead Horse Gulch. Enjoy a scenic panorama of snow-topped mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterways, tunnels, and points of historic interest. See the original Klondike Trail, worn by the footfalls of the thousands who tramped along the route with dreams of making their fortune. On arrival in Fraser, B.C., the group switches to bikes for the downhill cruise back to Skagway. Along the way, your guide will fill you in on fascinating details of this breathtaking region and entertain you with tales of exciting episodes from the rollicking days of the Klondike Gold Rush. The perfect all-in-one Skagway shore excursion, and one that history- and nature-lovers say is among our best Skagway shore excursions, the White Pass Train and Bike tour is sure to be a highlight of your Alaskan adventure!

    White Pass Train & BikeWe had a super time. We walked from the ship to the bike shop. Skagway is a great town to stroll through. The train ride was spectacular, with truly great scenery.

    The bike tour was thrilling & required little effort as most of the trip was downhill. Our guides emphasized safety & made sure that everyone stayed together & did not encounter any issues or problems. The bikes are also well-built & easy to operate.

    My wife & I are both in our 60's & this was one of the highlights of our vacation. I would highly recommend this trip.

    2 beautiful scenic rides!We started with a simple meet and liability waiver at the bike shop, it took about 10-15 minutes to walk from the ship. There were also shuttles but we decided to walk to soak in the western town on the way to the shop. The tour was great, Beautiful scenery going up the White Pass on board the train, and it only gets better coming back down on the provided, and in great condition, mountain bikes. There is little to no effort required on the bikes minus the 100-200 yards at a slight uphill grade. My mother with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis even came along and really enjoyed the downhill bike ride. It took just a little over an hour to make it back to town with about 4-5 stopping points along the 15-mile route. We were fortunate with bluebird skies and temps starting in the miss 50’s climbing to the low 60’s. It made for a great morning in Skagway.
