Skagway Bennett Scenic Railroad Journey

Escape into the heart of history! Travel 67.5 miles by train between Skagway, AK, and Carcross, YT, traveling the same route that the Klondike stampeders traversed in 1898! Couple that with a motor coach transfer along the scenic Klondike Highway to/from Skagway, with a stop at Emerald Lake for photos, for the perfect combination of your Canadian & Alaskan holiday adventures.

A hearty boxed lunch will be served on board as the train travels the length of Lake Bennett and arrives in Carcross, YT. Bennett, BC, is accessible only via the White Pass train or by hiking the world famous Chilkoot Trail, so it's a very exclusive and completely unique experience. Wander through the historic Bennett Station House museum and the remains of the Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site.

If untouched, breathtaking scenery, a railroad adventure, and a day packed with historic happenings is what you're looking for, then the Skagway Bennett Scenic Railroad Journey is the excursion for you!
