White Pass Railroad (Skagway)
No other railroad is quite like the White Pass & Yukon Route. Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush and against all odds, the iron trail was carved through some of the North’s most rugged terrain. This engineering wonder climbs nearly 3,000 feet in 26 miles of steep grades and cliff-hanging turns. It is a narrow gauge railroad, an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark and offers a number of scenic historic train rides designed to fit your interest and schedule.
