7. Dip into Yukon Territory on the historic White Pass & Yukon Route train

Riding the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad from Carcross to Skagway, Alaska

Skagway is situated near Alaska’s border with Canada, and a highly recommended excursion while there is to hop aboard the White Pass & Yukon Route train into Yukon Territory. This “Scenic Railway of the World” has a storied history dating back to the Klondike Gold Rush and the mountainous landscape you traverse through is simply gorgeous.

The Yukon Discovery Tour offered by Frontier Excursions is an excellent, convenient option for cruise visitors.

If you are like me and would never say no to spending more quality time with Alaskan huskies, the Yukon Discovery Tour has you covered with its stop at the Caribou Crossing Trading Post. You’ll have an opportunity to greet and pet the dogs, and maybe even experience their sled-pulling skills. Also, watch out for (and load up on) Grandma’s donuts.
