White Pass Train and Bike tour will not be available for the 2021 season. It will return in 2022.
Combine a trip on a historic railroad with a scenic, 15 mile bike ride!
Board the historic White Pass & Yukon Route narrow-gauge railroad for a scenic 90 minute trip through the coastal mountains to British Columbia, Canada. There you meet your guides and take a short van ride along the scenic Klondike Highway to the summit of the White Pass.
After a bicycle orientation and test ride, it is fifteen scenic miles downhill from the summit to the sea! As you coast along the paved Klondike Highway on this one and a half hour bike ride you make multiple stops for photos of the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, cascading waterfalls, awe-inspiring glaciers, majestic mountains, and other historic sites. We even stop at US Customs to check back into the US on bikes!
