Meet our Alaska Travel Designers and Support Team

We've explored every corner of Alaska to curate the most exceptional experiences for you

At Alaska Rail Vacations, your dream getaways fuel our tenacious tendencies. We're exhilarated by completely customizing your ideal itinerary and navigating the nitty gritty until your trip is silky smooth. Sure, it’s a process full of finite details and ‘what-if’ plan b’s, but we truly love doing it—and that’s the kind of passion that shows.

Proud members of the Virtuoso family and the Signature Travel Network, Alaska Rail Vacations is part of Discover Holidays, a leading B2B tour operator for Alaska and Canada. We've spent the past 23 years providing a full range of travel products and services to the international tour operator community, welcoming over 120,000 visitors to Alaska and Canada annually.
