Accessibility Details

The Skagway Wheelchair Accessible Train Excursion has a 3 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because the tour itself does not require any walking or long distances to navigate. It did not receive a higher rating because wheelchair users will have to roll to the Skagway train station in order to start the tour. This is located approximately 1 mile away from the cruise terminal.

The train is equipped with a wheelchair lift and offers plenty of open space areas for wheelchair users to conveniently sit next to one of the large panoramic windows. There is also an accessible restroom with grab bars located onboard the train.

While onboard the train, you will enjoy incredible views including montains, waterfalls, breathtaking vegetation and much more!
