Q: We would like to travel from Anchorage to Fairbanks to Valdez on a five day visit. We would like to travel mostly by rail. How can we do this?
A: You can take the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks. There is no rail line from Fairbanks to Valdez so you would need to rent a car in Fairbanks to continue your journey to Valdez. You could drop the car off in Anchorage but would have to pay a one-way rental fee. Alaska Tour & Travel could assist you with your lodging, tours and rail transportation but we do not offer car rentals in Fairbanks.
