White Pass Railway, Klondike Gold Fields & Panning

Don't miss this golden opportunity to experience the Klondike's rich past on this historical railway and dredge tour. In Skagway, you’ll board the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad. Once aboard your old-fashioned parlor car, you'll retrace the original route through rugged terrain beyond the summit of White Pass and Fraser, British Columbia. You’ll journey down the west side of White Pass Canyon to Skagway via motorcoach. A stop at Tormented Valley and Pitchfork Falls provide picturesque valley views.


This guided tour complete with colorful characters, provides a unique opportunity to explore a massive gold dredge formerly used in the Klondike Gold Fields. This 350 ton machine is one of over 120 that operated in the north, and today stands as a monument to the gold rush seekers of the past century. You'll have a chance to try your hand at gold panning, with gold guaranteed in every pan! The Gold Shack staff will weigh your gold and fashion a memorable keepsake for purchase. On your return to Skagway, you may either stop for shopping or return directly to the ship.


Note: All guests must carry a valid passport as this tour will be crossing both U.S. and Canadian borders.
