The Alaska Railroad Route System

At its southern end, the Alaska Railroad serves Seward and Whittier, both of which are frequent embarkation / disembarkation ports for cruise lines serving Alaska. Whittier is also a port of call for the Alaska ferry system. Heading north, the Alaska Railroad serves the resort town of Girdwood en route to Anchorage, Alaska's largest city. From there, the train stops at Talkeetna and Denali National Park and Preserve on the way to its northern terminus in Fairbanks.

Alaska Rail Experiences

Alaska rail travel can be combined with some of Alaska's finest tour options for an unforgettable single-day experience or a complete Alaska vacation. Single-day options include rail travel to Seward or Whittier from Anchorage, where visitors connect with day cruises to Kenai Fjords National Park or into the legendary Prince William Sound for wildlife viewing and an up-close view of mammoth glaciers.

Longer vacations combine rail with car rentals or motorcoach tours and air connections to Alaska destinations as far-flung as Barrow, the farthest north city in the U.S., and Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska's famed Inside Passage. Rail serves as the backbone of these itineraries, but pre-planned arrangements that include other modes of travel allow visitors to experience much more of Alaska without the hassle of booking each segment individually. These spectacular rail-based vacations have been planned to showcase the best of Alaska.

Multi-day rail-only packages are another option, and a great way to see the spectacular scenery and quirky communities along the railroad while including popular visitor destinations like Kenai Fjords National Park, Denali National Park and Prince William Sound. Traveling by rail leaves you free to relax, take photos and soak up the stunning surroundings.
