White Pass & Yukon Route, Alaska
Travelers with a thirst for adventure will delight in Alaska's White Pass & Yukon Route railway, a narrow gauge railroad that climbs 3,000 feet in 20 miles and takes passengers around vertigo-inducing cliff-top 16-degree curves. Peer out the window of the vintage steam locomotive and you'll see iconic Alaskan landscapes: glaciers, waterfalls, flowering meadows, snow-capped mountains. Taking a trip on the White Pass & Yukon Route is a great option for Alaska cruisers (virtually all cruise lines calling in Skagway offer the train ride), and the railway is the most popular land excursion in Alaska.
