 Skagway

WHITE PASS TRAIN UP AND BIKE DOWN
$160 Per Person

The area surrounding Skagway is impressive, as the city occupies a narrow plain along the mouth of the Skagway River. It looks like it is driving a wedge into the slopes that lead to White Pass. The forest is lush and green and the Alpines are growing closer to sea level so you will get great views. You will get the idea if you chose to take this tour, a combination of the best of Skagway.

The first leg of the trip takes place on board the famous White Pass Railway, one of the only operating narrow-gauge railroads in North American. You'll have a narrated ride, with history about the Gold Rush as you tour. You will climb from sea level up to White Pass, a 2,865-foot elevation, and the vistas get better and better, as you get higher.

As you disembark the train at the Fraser Station, a van will be waiting to take you to the top of White Pass, just a 15-minute shuttle, to the start of your biking adventure.

Once at the top of the pass, you will receive a bicycle and safety orientation. Experienced guides will escort you from the summit to the sea on the Klondike Road. You will be cruising as you make your way down the 15 miles of mountain road.

Many enjoyable stops will be made along the way so you can take photos of the waterfalls, the White Pass Railroad, glaciers from above, and the mountains surrounding you. As the weather in Skagway is considerably drier than other parts of the Southeast, especially before mid-July, this is a great place to plan a bike ride and a unique way to tour Skagway and the surrounding area.
