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.

Our customers love our Alaska tours
Alaska the Greatland
15 Oct 2022
Clara
5 stars
“The trip was excellent and our tour guide, Beth Mohan, and bus driver, Joe Hall, were fantastic. When the weather canceled our tram ride up the mountain, Beth had an alternative at sea Aquarium which was lovely. Especially loved watching the puffins. Wish the rail company had told us the bus was going everywhere with us with our luggage as the train restrictions on size made it difficult and unable to pack some necessities like a pillow. I thought the train would be my favorite but the tour boat out into the sound was even more impressive getting up close to the glaciers and seeing other animals. Would definitely reommend this trip to others.

“Excellent itinerary, well arranged. Only real issue was that one day in Denali Park is much too short, need two or three.
