Northern Lights at Borealis Basecamp
3/Apr
Carol
5 stars
“The Borealis Basecamp location is unique. Two nights were just right for us. The igloos were cozy. May be nice to have some different games available. The staff was excellent. All well coordinated. Received information in time and the instructions on the vouchers helped. Liked our stay at Springhill in Fairbanks. Did you know that the bus system in Fairbanks is free if you are over 60? The Aurora train was comfortable and enjoyed mixing with others in the dining car. We booked a separate city tour package in Anchorage. No free breakfast at the hotel. Some amenities were not free. We found a great breakfast at Snow City Cafe. Will definitely explore Vacations by Rail again. Customer Service was spot on!

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.
