Alaska's Railroad Journeys

Alaska from NOAA

Alaska’s great railroad journeys are something every traveler should experience. The Alaska Railroad has transported passengers through Alaska’s most spectacular scenery for close to a century, making it one of Alaska’s oldest tour companies. The main route runs 500 miles through Southcentral Alaska. You'll know from the very moment you climb aboard the Alaska Railroad you're riding on the best train in the world.

The charm and scenic appeal of this great and vast land is amplified through panoramic windows and underscored by historical narratives of lifelong Alaskan conductors and tour guides.

The primary passenger season runs from mid-May to mid-September, when trains run daily between Anchorage and Seward, Anchorage, and Whittier, and from Anchorage to Fairbanks. During the winter, trains run between Anchorage and Fairbanks on weekends. Adventure packages and day trips include the finest
accommodations and sightseeing tours along the railbelt to make planning your
vacation seamless.
