Alaska Northern Lights & Aurora Train
28 Feb 2024
EUNICE FIGUEROA ZAMBRANO
5 stars
“This was an amazing trip! For a first timer in Alaska, this trip was very well mapped out and made a new state for us very approachable. I don't think we could have successfully pulled off this trip on our own. We were introduced to amazing people in Fairbanks and in Anchorage. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and very excited to show us everything about Alaska. For a big state, that could be overwhelming, Vacations by rail made it super fun and delightful. You will be nocturnal for about 2 days your sleep! This was due to chasing the auroras. We did not get to see them due to the weather, but I would do this trip again! We had an amazing time, the accommodation were great. This is an excellent trip for people interested in history and wildlife as well. You learn and see so much on the train. The train itself is a wonderful experience.

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.
