Skagway: Train ride or Drive?

Jump to last reply

Every guidebook says the train ride from Skagway on the White Pass & Yukon route is a must-do. But I'm wondering whether there's the option of driving that route too? I've heard of the Klondike Highway, but couldn't find much info on it. Does it parallel the rail track, and can you see the same scenery as the train route?

The train ticket seems rather expensive--$100 for 3 hours. We're thinking of renting a car and drive out there and have the flexibility of stopping and taking our time to look around. Would you recommend this drive vs the train? We're going at the end of May? I wonder if the road condition would be good then for driving?

We have 1 full day in Skagway on on cruise--7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Not sure we can fill it up. Is there any kayaking you can do Skagway. No guidebook mentions that at all.

Thanks!
