Magnificent! That’s what you’ll say once you’ve seen Laughton Glacier. But you’ll say the same thing about the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway train trip featuring waterfalls, rivers and mountain peaks. Your hike to the Glacier ends with a buffet.

White Pass Railway & Laughton Glacier Wilderness Hike

This trip combines a train ride aboard the Historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railway with a wilderness trek to the magnificent Laughton Glacier. You’ll board the train for a one hour scenic journey filled with spectacular waterfalls, rushing rivers and jagged mountain peaks. At Glacier Station begin your fully guided round-trip hike of up to 8 miles, in the wilds of Alaska. The magnificent sub-Alpine rainforest valley is home to moose, bear, mountain goats and other wildlife.


The spectacular trail winds along the raging Skagway River to the majestic Laughton Glacier. The terrain changes dramatically as you leave the rocky riverbed and climb over a boulder field and onto the glacier. Enjoy the breathtaking views and exposed crevasses of the frozen river of ice. Upon your return to the trailhead, you’ll be greeted with a traditional “Bush Buffet”. Relax and enjoy the ride back to town on 'The Scenic Railway of the World.


Note: Participants must be at least 9 years of age, in good physical condition and able to walk over uneven and sometimes difficult terrain. Dress in layers and wear sturdy walking shoes. Train returns from Canada, all participants are required to carry a valid passport. In late May and early June, glacier travel may be limited by snow on the glacier.
