Alaska Vacations

Alaska by Train

By land and sea, experience the massive glaciers, majestic mountains and pristine national parks of America's Last Frontier, Alaska. Select an Alaska vacation package that best suits your travel preferences and enjoy options that range from daylight-only railway journeys to Alaska cruise and train tours that depart from Canada or from the USA. While you travel, experience popular destinations, such as Juneau, Anchorage, Talkeetna, Fairbanks, Denali National Park and Kenai Fjords National Park, while colorful frontier history come to life. A cruise and land tour is an ideal combo allowing you to uncover even more of Alaska's pristine wilderness and fascinating cities.

Depending on where you start your trip, an Alaska vacation can include travel on Amtrak trains or aboard the legendary Alaska Railroad. In 1903, the privately-owned Alaska Central Railway began constructing the rail line in Seward and created a route that extended 50 miles north. Today, the Alaska Railroad stretches much further - 470 miles north to Fairbanks via Denali National Park. In fact, the railroad was the catalyst behind the tourism boom in the national park. Your Alaska vacation package may also include a cruise tour to Alaska departing from Vancouver or a flight across the Arctic Circle to view the colors of the Aurora Borealis as they dance across the sky. Some tours incorporate time in the lower 48, as well, such as the Yosemite & Denali National Parks with Cruise 18-day tour that departs from San Francisco and includes a visit to Yosemite National Park in California before continuing north for an Alaska cruise and train trip.

“Vacations by Rail was great to work with, our agent Ryan never got tired of my questions and was always helpful. The whole trip was so easy because they did all the work, our vouchers arrived and off we went. The Rocky Mountaineer is by far the most amazing train trip you could ever take through the Canadian Rockies.
