Hit the Rails

One of the Alaska Railroad’s main passenger depots is located in Anchorage and runs from Seward to Fairbanks. Anchorage has a long history with the railroad; in fact, it is still at the heart of many excursions. In the summer, daily train service links Anchorage to Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop, Whittier, Seward, Talkeetna, Denali National Park and Fairbanks. Thanks to many railroad excursions, visitors can set up base in Anchorage and see more of the state without even renting a car. Climb aboard the Alaska Railroad for day excursions or multi-day stays in some of the top destinations in Alaska. No matter the destination, a ride on the train is sure to be accompanied by spectacular views to sit back and enjoy without worrying about maps or watching the road. Many tours and experiences match up with the train schedule in each of these locations, so hop off the train and explore a bit or take a tour before heading back to home base in Anchorage.
