White Pass and Yukon Route railroad


This International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark was celebrated as "the railway built of gold" by the tens of thousands of men who constructed it in 1898 with 450 tons of explosives during the Klondike Gold Rush. The WP&YR ascends 3000 feet of glaciers, waterfalls, mountains, gorges, trestles, and tunnels in 20 narrow gauge miles. Visitors can enjoy spectacular, iconic scenery from the historic, vintage parlor cars.
