The Experience

As your train whisks you deep into the Alaskan wilderness, keep your camera at the ready to capture brown bears playing on river sand banks, migrating caribou on their annual pilgrimage, and humpback whales breeching in glacial waters. Explore the historic sites of Anchorage and soak in views of the surrounding mountains, glacial lakes and vast forests before boarding your scenic train on the round trip to Sward. Relax as you travel through the beautiful fjords and coastal landscape of Kenai Fjords National Park, and pause to spot orca and humpback whales, sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters and puffins at Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Elsewhere, your train will whisk you through the dense forests that line the banks of the Eagle, Knik and Matanuska Rivers where moose, bear and the occasional wolf congregate, and on to the Danali National Park where you’ll view black and brown bears in the shadows of soaring Mt. Kinley. As your train climbs toward the tree line and lumbers across the longest bridge on the railroad, keep watch for migrating caribou while you continue on to Healy Canyon where the surging waters of Nenana River cuts through the steep cliffs. This excellent tour suits people of all ages and fitness levels as panoramic train journeys carry you into the heart of wild Alaska in complete comfort and without the need for physically-taxing hikes. Your experienced team of English-speaking private guides will help you spot Alaska’s abundant native wildlife in its natural habitat, and relate engaging stories about the history and rich culture of this remarkable land. You’ll also spend comfortable nights at a range of well-appointed hotels and luxury wilderness lodges.
