About the Tour

Begin your Alaskan adventure in the state's largest city of Anchorage with a day to explore this grand city on your own. Next, you'll enjoy a train ride to the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop. Here you'll see glaciers up close and personal on a float tour down the Placer River.

The next train journey takes you alongside Turnagain Arm with beautiful views on your way to Seward. Here you'll cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park with stunning views of glaciers—and hopefully spot whales and sea lions too. In Seward, you'll experience true Alaskan culture with a dog sled ride and a roadhouse lunch.

An overnight train ride takes you to Anchorage before you head to Denali. You'll have plenty of time to visit the beautiful Denali National Park, with a full-day bus tour followed by a free morning to explore the area on your own. Wrap up this excursion through Alaska's greatest spots as you loop back to Anchorage.
