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.
