White Pass Summit Train - Do it! No decision necessary, you don’t want to miss this. My favorite part of our Alaska cruise! You rarely get a chance in life for such breathtaking views
I've done 16 cruises, and my favorite excursion EVER was in Skagway. We did the Musher's Camp and Sled Dog Experience through Carnival. We rode a Unimog (painted green and named "Kermit the Mog!), we went up the mountain to the musher's camp. It was September so it wasn't cold enough for snow, so we got to ride in one of the training sleds ( still pulled by the dogs, but on wheels). After returning to the camp for complimentary hot chocolate, we listened to a talk by a guy who had competed in the Ididerod. He told us some fascinating stories, then we got to visit with the mush dogs. They let me hold a five day old puppy! I was in love!! I would do this excursion again in a heartbeat.
We did the Dog Sledding and Helicopter tour was worth it. The dogs loved all the attention they got. The views are priceless. It was amazing to learn the dogs get to ride in the helicopters since it’s the only way to the top of the glacier.
Another beautiful day! Skagway is a quaint town. We did a city tour and then went to White Pass Summit. On the way we saw so many beautiful waterfalls and snow ( not a lot) was still on the mountain. Alaska is majestic and the people of Alaska are very hospitable!
Did the Sled dogs, 40 below and Gold Panning Excursion...tons of fun, informative, and great for the kids as well! Well worth the money, great experience!😊
We loved Skagway and went on the White Pass Railway. Well worth the money.

We loved Skagway. We took an all day tour that we booked directly with the tour company. We went up into the Yukon and saw Emerald Lake which is absolutely beautiful. Our weather was spectacular!! Our driver/tour guide was a wonderful storyteller and guide. He stopped frequently for photo opps. We had plenty of time to walk around and explore the town after we got back.
We went on the White Pass railway to the Yukon...What a memerable experience. Breathtaking would be the word I would use to describe it. We even did some panning for gold and found $30 in gold flakes.

Love this port. Easy to get around this town that is only seven blocks long.
