Alaska’s far southeastern corner consists of a region that extends into Canada’s Northwest Territories: the Klondike. The Klondike is a historically and ecologically significant region. The Klondike was the site of the great Alaskan Gold Rush, and today, gold and precious metals still abound in the Klondike’s rugged mountains.
The White Pass Deluxe Tour from Klondike Tours, Inc. is an excellent way to experience this amazing region. The White Pass Deluxe Tour is one of the best Alaska tours in the region—lasting over three hours, it traverses the White Pass into Canada’s scenic Northwest Territories. Historical sites, including the iconic Trail of ’98, are visible from the White Pass Deluxe Tour. The tour features at least eight stops, including at Bridal Veil Falls, the White Pass summit, Tormented Valley, the Moore Bridge and more.
The White Pass Deluxe Tour parallels historic railroad tracks that lie across the valley from the highway. This exciting Alaskan excursion is a great way to see and experience the historical and natural riches of the Klondike like never before.

- Layered clothing:
The weather in the Klondike can change on a dime—the day may start warm and comfortable, and suddenly become chilly and wet or rainy. It’s advisable to wear a thin,long-sleeve shirt as a base layer, and then cover it with a fleece jacket and a subsequent rain shell coat.
