Located on the banks of the Yukon River, Whitehorse is the largest city in the territory as well as the Yukon capital with a few heritage buildings awaiting your discovery. Your tour guide will show you the Old Log Church, Log Skyscraper, Fish Ladder, SS Klondike, Miles Canyon and the Miles Canyon Lookout.

You will also take a wonderful day trip on a Skagway Excursion (Train & Coach) which will take you from the White Pass Depot in Whitehorse along the scenic South Klondike Highway to Fraser, BC, where you will connect with the world famous narrow gauge White Pass & Yukon Route Railway. Along the way you will see breathtaking panoramas of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites.

Your 28-mile rail excursion will descend over the White Pass Summit and into Skagway, Alaska. Skagway was the gateway to the Klondike Gold Rush during the days of '98, and continues to hold on to its boom-town roots today.
