The White Pass and Yukon Railway is one of Alaska’s most popular visitor attractions and should not be missed. The narrow-gauge railroad winds its way through a glacial valley, taking you past glacial rivers, majestic waterfalls, and steep gorges for a real taste of wild Alaska. You’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time to the Gold Rush era on this authentic train, as you climb 3,000 feet to scenic vistas on your way to get a look at the source of the famous Yukon River.

Skagway has a wide variety of wildlife to be seen. Bald eagles and black and brown bears are occasionally seen in town. Outside town, you can find wolves, coyotes, mountain goats, marmots, weasels and porcupines. In the bay you may spot humpback and orca whales, river otters, and of course, salmon.
