The White Pass & Yukon Rail Route

The White Pass and Yukon Route is an iconic rail journey, renowned as one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys.

We can book this train journey for you when you book a holiday to Alaska (including flights and accommodation) with us.

In 1994 the White Pass and Yukon Route was named an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, alongside the Statue of Liberty and the Panama Canal. Built in 1898 by the hardworking labour of 35,000 men, using only a set of basic tools, paving out the 110-mile narrow gauge line that originally stretched from Skagway, Alaska to Whitehorse, Canada. Today, guests marvel at the breath-taking panoramas of mountains, glaciers, trestles and tunnels from the comfort of vintage train carriages. 

The White Pass and Yukon Route is crowned Alaska's most popular shore excursion and a leading favourite on many Alaska and Canada travellers must-see lists.

Travel an unforgettable journey of a lifetime, covering miles of dramatically striking natural landscape through large panoramic windows.

Climb the 3,000 feet alpine to reach scenic vistas and be sure not to catch awe-inspiring glimpses of the headwaters of the famous Yukon River as you reach the spectacular White Pass Summit.
