Alaska Rail Tours & Luxury Alaska Rail Vacations & Trips | Designed to your distinct travel preferences.
Alaska’s wild beauty, abundant wildlife and colorful culture offer great appeal to those looking to travel off the beaten track on a self drive road trip or Alaska rail vacation. Alaska Railroad is by far the best way to do so, from the rugged mountains of Denali National Park and the calving glaciers of Prince William Sound to the wildlife-rich waters of Kenai Fjords.
Depending on where you begin, your Alaska train vacation will include at least one route aboard the legendary Alaska Railroad. In 1903, the Alaska Central Railway began constructing the rail line in Seward and created a route that extended 50 miles north. Today, this route stretches 470 miles north to Fairbanks via Denali National Park. Discover the catalyst behind the tourism boom in Alaska and witness for yourself what attracts hundreds of thousands of travelers every year.
