There’s no better way to see more of the great, glorious state of Alaska in a short time than by train, and the Alaska Railroad elevates riding the rails to a fine art form. You and your travel partners may choose from an exhilarating array of year-round trips with an optional upgrade from the tried-and-true picture-window perfection and comfort of Adventure Class – with shared access to upper-level viewing cars and dining in the Wilderness Café – to the fully narrated Gold Star Service, featuring the best accommodations, delicious all-inclusive meals, complimentary adult beverages, endless coffee, tea and soft drinks and stunning views from bi-level domed cars and open-air decks.
Whether you go all out and spring for a customizable Alaskan Rail Vacation Package or prefer the simple satisfaction of a popular day trip, you’re in for an unforgettable Last Frontier railroad adventure full of unmatched mountain scenery – replete with a bear, moose, eagles and other (abundant!) native fauna - and fascinating historic sightseeing.
Optional “tours” – a la carte activities paired with your group’s choice of rail segment - make for a well-rounded excursion and include glacier cruises and hikes, rafting, kayaking, whale watching, wildlife viewing, stops at renowned attractions and points of interest, and more. Additionally, the Alaska Railroad offers a series of annual limited edition “special events” and holiday experiences on trains that run outside the normal schedule – bears, brews, blues and bbq, anyone? Get ready to discover the unrivaled splendor of "The Land of the Midnight Sun" by railroad, your way – with the help of the capable Group Tours travel team!
