People, history, scenary!
It can get real cold!
In a nutshell
Worth the visit for the mountains and history alone!
The Yukon Alaska Tourist Tour company advertises a Hiker's Package that sounds like a great way to get on and off the famous Chilkoot Trail. A combination bus / train ride includes a ride on the renowned White Pass Railroad. That part was fabulous! The part that wasn't was a two and a half hour wait in the cold wind at the side of the highway after we had been dropped off by the train after finishing the hike. The bus never came. We contacted the YATT tour company, waited another hour and finally hitchiked into Whitehorse. The company manager was very rude and beligerent in his response, and has yet to refund our money for the bus portion of our return trip.
Unique Suggestions: Absolutely hike the Chilkoot Trail, and absolutely go on the White Pass Railroad, but go with a different company.
