Highlights
See more Skagway sights in less time on a shore excursion
An obvious choice for first-time visitors and time-pressed travelers
Letting someone else drive allows you to focus on the scenery
Port pickup and drop-off mean you don’t have to worry about getting back in time
What to expect
After port pickup, your 2.5-hour shore excursion begins with a city tour of Skagway. At the Skagway City Overlook, enjoy bird’s-eye views of the town, harbor and cruise ships. Against the backdrop of mountains and rain forests, see historic landmarks including the WP&YR railroad, Moore Creek Bridge, Brackett Wagon Road and Pitchfork Falls. Your informative guide shares tales at the Klondike Gold Rush Cemetery — hear about Frank Reid, ‘Soapy’ Smith and the gunfight that forever transformed Skagway. Next, speed along the Klondike Highway, which parallels the White Pass Railroad and White Pass Trail, and listen to stories of the Klondike Gold Rush. As waterfalls, mountains and glaciers pass within view, imagine hopeful prospectors crossing this unforgiving terrain. Ascend an elevation of 3,292 feet (1,003 meters) before reaching Tormented Valley, a desolate lunar-like landscape of 300-year-old trees and alpine tundra. Traverse the valley and then stretch your legs at Summit Lake. Take in the beautiful but harsh wilderness in the White Pass Summit Area that inspired writers like Robert Service and Jack London. En route back to Skagway port, stop at the iconic ‘Welcome to Alaska’ sign and snap a commemorative shot of your journey. Please note: All passengers must have a valid passport. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return back to the ship in Skagway for this activity. If your ship is delayed and you are unable attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Wonderful Skagway
Sep. 2019
We were on Ovation of the seas and booked the white pass train and coach tour for around 162 dollars In the tour we visited the Skagway cemetery with all its history the trip was amazing and worth the price not to be missed and the scenery and the town are unforgettable.

We opted for this shorter excursion as we loved the town of Skagway. A smaller van took us on a great adventure, explaining the history of the town. Our guide, a man from Monterrey CA was PHENOMENAL!! Lots of interesting facts and great stories while viewing beautiful scenery and stunning views. Inexpensive vs the 6 hour rail tour.

My wife was also very happy with the tour. John we appreciate watching over our youngest son when he ran off ahead of us!!!

Mike,our driver/ guide,really made this tour special with his non stop stories about Skagway and the gold rush days and all the slightly dodgy characters that made their fortunes there. All the information was relayed with a hint of dark humour which brought the past to life. We had the advantage over the train that we could stop every few minutes to admire the scenery and take photos, it's much cheaper as well. I found the gold rush cemetery especially poignant,with graves of babies and young people showing just how tough life was then.

Jun. 2019 • Family
This bus ride is a great way to see the sights of the train tour, but getting to stop at breathtaking views along the way made this even better! There were so many different things to see, and we got to see them all. From the beautiful lakes to the suspension bridge and the mountains, the views were endless. Andy was a great guide! We really enjoyed all he told us about. Superb excursion!

Forget the train! It doesn't stop. Our wonderful guide Jennifer narrated our journey with lots of great information. We got to stop and she made sure everyone got to take photos. We went up to the summit and the views of Tormented Valley were breath taking. The train didn't go as far as we did, so we had a much better view. In June, wear layers.

Our tour guide Beverly was great. She talked to us about the area and the stories she new.
Skagway is a small town, but charming. The white pass summit is a beautiful place I recommend to visit.
