From the coastal shores of Seward and Whittier, past glaciers, forests and towering Denali all the way north to the Golden Heart City of Fairbanks; the three main routes of the Alaska Railroad showcase the true breadth of awe inspiring Alaskan landscapes. Operating from mid-May to mid-September during the long, light summer days, there can be no easier way to journey through the natural majesty of the USA’s largest state.
