Alaska Train Adventures

Alaska by rail is most memorable experience.

You can strike out into the mountains of the Yukon on the same narrow-gauge railroad used by the gold rushers of 1898.

In fact, you can incorporate this train into heli-hiking, backpack trips on the Chilkoot Goldrush Trail, and other mountain adventures too.


You can train down along the Cook Inlet coast for supreme waterfront vistas, or to Whittier for a 26-Glacier cruise where the one-way railroad tunnel is shared with cars!


And the Alaskan train to Denali National Park may very well be the highlight of your entire trip.  On your 5-hour journey, you can enjoy breakfast in the full-service dining car, wonder at the artifacts in the small museum car,  and meet the conductor who delivers a newspaper each day to off-the-grid homesteaders as the train chugs past.

Choose between glass-domed luxury cars or open-air platforms.  Both deliver to you a train adventure that you will not soon forget!
