We had two wonderful guides - Peter and Erin - who are cycling enthusiasts and who know their terrain. The tour we took was on completely level ground - so easy for folks who hadn't been on a bicycle in years! They explained about the flora along the way, took us to see a ghost town - Dyea - and were prepared to talk about the fauna....but alas, we only saw one bald eagle. Both Peter and Erin could not have been more helpful and fun! They clearly love what they do and sharing it with others. Taking this excursion was one of our trip highlights!
We chose the tour that lets you bike down the mountain after the train ride up. Lots of rain, but it was fun but a little nerve racking. However, after we got the hang of it, we enjoyed it a lot. All in all, there was plenty of great scenery, photo ops, and great stories about the Yukon gold rush and Skagway's part in it.
WOW!!! If you are even remotely interested in bicycling, you MUST do this. Take the train up and then ride a bike down for 15 miles. Very little pedaling, good equipment, great guides that take care of you, numerous photo opps that you will not get on the round trip train ride... DO IT!!
This was part of a White Pass Train/Bike Tour, so we took the train to the summit and biked back to town. The scenery was incredible and the guides on the trip were excellent. Very informative and engaging.
Personally I didn't enjoy this, although my husband did. If you like careening down a mountainside on two wheels then by all means go ahead and give it a go, but it's most definitely not my idea of fun.
We took the White Pass Scenic Railway up from Skagway to Fraisier, BC, then we bicycled down the mountain back to the port. This excursion was fantastic, our guides were knowledgeable, fun and friendly. They were concerned about safety and our comfort.
