Details

Steam Train: Embark on an exhilarating journey through time aboard Engine #73, a 1947 Baldwin steam locomotive that will transport you back to the golden age of steam and railway travel. This 53-mile steam engine ride offers a unique opportunity to admire the meticulous craftsmanship and engineering geniuses of the past. Capture the breathtaking scenery and iconic landmarks, including the majestic Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point, Dead Horse Gulch and the White Pass summit, through the large picture windows of vintage rail cars. Indulge in a hearty snack while your guide shares fascinating stories about the Klondike Gold Rush and the construction of the railway.

Lake Bennett: Experience Lake Bennett, a secluded stop along the way and only accessible via railroad, or by hiking 33 miles on the Chilkoot Trail. Explore the renowned Chilkoot Trail, immerse yourself in its rich history, and marvel at the scenic lake view from St. Andrew’s Church. Take a step back in time as you admire the historic 1910 Bennett station house with captivating interpretive displays and a short video showcasing the glory days of this isolated spot.
