Alaska Rail Tours

With its massive glaciers, majestic mountains, pristine National Parks and storied frontier history, Alaska is a popular destination for vacations on land or sea.

An Alaska train vacation can include travel aboard the legendary Alaska Railroad. Constructed in 1915 to move freight to build the new territory, today it also runs five leisure trains where travelers are treated to spectacular sights from local wildlife and Mt. McKinley to the cruise port of Seward and the metropolis of Anchorage. 

Alaska is also one of the most popular rail-cruise destinations in North America. Travelers embarking on a USA rail-cruise or Canada rail-cruise vacation enjoy visits to popular coastal destinations like Alaska’s capital city, Juneau; Alaska’s southernmost big city and home to Misty Fjords National Monument, Ketchikan; the gold rush town of Skagway, and of course, Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to 16 glaciers, many of which calve to produce icebergs.
