Catch the McKinley Explorer private rail car from either Anchorage or Fairbanks to Denali National Park this summer.
These full-dome cars offer great views on the way to the park. Plus, there’s a nice restaurant on the lower level of each car.
Gray Line of Alaska combines the rail trip with two nights at Denali Park Resorts–right at the park entrance.
Since you’re staying two nights, you’ve got time to take the bus tour into the park. I recommend the longer Wilderness Discovery Tour. It lasts about eight hours–but it’s worth it.
From Anchorage, the cost is $399 per person, double occupancy. From Fairbanks–the same tour is $299 per person, double. These are great rail/hotel deals right to the park entrance! Transfers from the station to your hotel are included.
