Travel the White Pass and Yukon Route

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, the White Pass and Yukon Route is recognized as an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark for its great feats of engineering. This is a designation shared with the Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty. The White Pass and Yukon Route Railway gains nearly 3,000 feet over 20 miles and engineers faced harsh weather and difficult terrain to make it happen. More than 100 years later, it still stands strong and visitors can ride the rails to experience incredible views of waterfalls, gorges, glaciers, trestles and historic sites via vintage rail cars. Enjoy the sights and historic commentary on “The Scenic Railway of the World.” There are a variety of excursions for visitors to work into their itineraries. Choose from round trips, summit excursions, one-way trips perfect for overnight camping and even hiking services.
