      • Train travel: You will travel 67.5 miles by train between Skagway and Carcross along the same route of the Klondike Stampeders.
      • Motorcoach tour: For a different vantage point you will travel one-way by motorcoach along the scenic Klondike Highway.
      • Lake Bennett: Bennett, British Columbia is only accessible by the White Pass train or by hiking the famous Chilkoot Trail. Be sure to visit the 1903 Bennett Station and stroll through the historic museum. 
      • Hearty lunch: Eat up the history of the landscape as you enjoy a box lunch aboard your train car as you ride along the shores of Lake Bennett to Carcross, Yukon Territory. Eats include turkey sandwich, picnic salad, chips and dessert. Vegetarian and gluten free options available with at least 24 hours advanced notice.
      • Full narration: Listen in on a full narration describing the major events of the Klondike Gold Rush while you relax in the comfort of your vintage car train.
      About this Skagway, Alaska tour

      In 1898, Klondike stampeders traveled 67.5 miles between Skagway Alaska and Carcross, in the Yukon Territory. They traveled anxiously, hoping to make good on the promise of a better life that the gold rush offered. It took some of them years to cross over the treacherous mountain passes of northwestern Canada.

      Luckily, the train that you'll travel inside of on this tour between Skagway, Alaska and Carcross, Yukon Territory, goes much faster. Your vintage rail coach runs along the same route that the Klondike stampeders traversed in 1898. 

      Along the rail route, enjoy a stroll through the restored early-1900’s Bennett Station building. This beautiful stop overlooks its namesake lake, which houses a small museum and theater with additional displays highlighting our vivid history during the Klondike Gold Rush. This beautiful station was built as a way point along the line to help feed hungry passengers and crews during summer and winter operating season. Passengers would enjoy the short stop to fill their bellies before continuing on their trip to Skagway, Alaska or Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.

      Adding to the peaceful nature of Bennett, this area is accessible only via the White Pass train or by hiking the famous Chilkoot Trail. As you enjoy a delicious meal that includes a turkey sandwich, picnic salad, chips and dessert, you'll appreciate the serenity and natural splendor of an area that once held so much promise for so many people. There is a small motorcoach that returns travelers to Skagway via the Klondike Highway. 

      Frederick Trump?

      Though Donald is the most famous, the Trump family has been in the hospitality business for generations. Donald's grandfather, Frederick Trump, was an entrepreneur who didn't mind getting his hands dirty: At the time of the Klondike Gold Rush, he was operating a seedy late night restaurant in Seattle. He quickly launched a new location in Bennett to cater to the thousands of travelers passing through, hoping to get rich.
