Those of us who call Alaska home love the mighty Alaska Railroad. Anchorage is home base for the railroad, but the tracks stretch from Seward all the way north to Fairbanks. While visitors may ride the train once or twice, many Alaskans have their favorite Alaska Railroad story. Sometimes it’s the Ski Train—or maybe a sightseeing trip to Spencer Glacier. More than 500,000 passengers each year ride the rails. Many of those passengers start in Whittier or Seward after getting off of a cruise ship.


Whether you’re an Alaska resident or a visitor, you’ll find riding the Alaska Railroad is a great way to see the beauty of Alaska. No driving required!


The Alaska TourSaver five great options for travelers to enjoy two-for-one savings on the mighty Alaska Railroad! 


The mighty Alaska Railroad recently celebrated its 100-year anniversary in Alaska, the “Great Land.” In 1914, the U.S. Government set forth on an ambitious plan to connect Alaskans and bring the territory’s natural resources to market using the railroad. This led to the establishment of Anchorage in 1915—which now is Alaska’s largest city…and continues as the headquarters of the Alaska Railroad.


Today, the mighty Alaska Railroad links cruise ship passengers docking in Whittier and Seward with the incredible wilderness along the “Rail Belt” featuring Talkeetna, Denali National Park and Fairbanks. Along the way, travelers can see glaciers, mountains and incredible views of the wilderness and wildlife.

For many visitors (and residents), a trip on the Alaska Railroad is a relaxing way to see some of the most beautiful parts of Alaska without worrying about oncoming traffic! In addition to providing a safe and efficient means of conveyance, the railroad crew knows where all of the best views are. In fact, there’s a spot north of Talkeetna known as “Kodachrome Corner,” where the train comes to a full stop. On sunny days, there is an unobstructed view of Denali. Everyone takes turns going to the open windows to take the “perfect shot” of the giant mountain. 


During the summer season, the Alaska Railroad features student guides who share historic moments about the railroad along the way. They’ll also encourage you to point out wildlife to fellow passengers. This includes Dall’s Sheep and beluga whales along the Turnagain Arm, moose (everywhere), bears (anywhere) and caribou. You’ll also learn about special features of the railroad, including the giant bridge over Hurricane Gulch, the unique one-lane rail/auto tunnel to Whittier and the unusual “corkscrew” route up to Grandview Glacier on the way between Portage and Seward.
