One Day Alaska Rail Excursions

Q: Do you have one day excursions on the train?

A: You can take a day trip to either Seward or Talkeetna with the Alaska Railroad [1]. The Seward trip could be combined with a day cruise through the Kenai Fjords National Park [2] for glacier and wildlife viewing. This trip departs Anchorage at 6:30am and returns about 10:30pm. It is a great and scenic trip, but a long day. Talkeetna offers a shorter day trip. We recommend combining this rail excursion with a McKinley Experience flightseeing [3] tour. The train departs Anchorage about 8:15am and arrives back about 8:00pm.
