Skagway-Haines Trip

Jump to last reply

I’m planning a 2012 trip to Alaska. We plan to visit the Haines-Skagway area and drive the Haines and Klondike highway loop between the two towns with a stop in Whitehorse for a few days.

I’m aware of the White Pass & Yukon Route train ride to White Pass Summit and beyond. Looking at maps, it appears the South Klondike highway runs parallel to the train tracks for a large part of the trip. With limited time, I’m wondering if driving the Klondike highway would cover many of the scenic aspects of the train ride. I’m not interested in doing the “same thing” twice, but if there is a definite need to do the train ride for the scenic aspect, I would consider it in addition to driving. Can anyone comment?

Also, is there any advantage in driving the loop starting in Haines as compared to starting in Skagway?
