Trace the trail of Klondike stampeders Canada & USA
Ever wondered what it would be like to follow in the footsteps of the Klondike stampeders? Well this is your chance to live like it's the 1890s and do exactly that. Travelling over 100 kilometres north from Skagway, Alaska, today you will wind up in two countries, crossing from the USA into Canada's Yukon territory and back again.
Unlike the prospectors of yesteryear you will thankfully not be attempting the treacherous mountain passes ill-equipped and by foot. Instead, my friend, you will watch the glaciers and gorges roll by your cosy train carriage window, before taking a lunch break at the scenic gold rush town of Bennett. You'll also break from the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad to take a quick detour to the famed Klondike Highway.
This eight-hour day-trip with Rail Plus costs US$271.
