Alaska Railroad: Ride the Aurora Train this winter!

In Adventure, Anchorage, Denali, Destination, Fairbanks, Railroad, Transportation by scott


Do you want to take an exciting winter adventure?  Hop aboard the mighty Alaska Railroad for their weekend train between Anchorage and Fairbanks.train 2 It’s called the “Aurora Train”.  No, really: it’s awesome. I went last winter–there are awesome views of Denali just north of Talkeetna. In fact, the engineer stops the train so everyone can snap a few shots. But that’s just one of the picture-perfect moments on the 12-hour ride. It’s a stunning ride along the border with Denali Park–particularly when the mountains are covered with snow.

Plan ahead to visit Fairbanks during the World Ice Art Championships . The railroad has added several mid-week departures, in addition to the regular Saturday north/Sunday south schedule.


The railroad has packages available for weekend trips from Anchorage to Talkeetna, winter adventures north of Fairbanks and several other options (including fly/rail packages!). LEARN MORE.
