A convenient round-trip schedule and picturesque landscapes along the route make the Coastal Classic Train a local favorite. From Anchorage, the train winds along Turnagain Arm and through the backcountry wilderness of the Kenai Peninsula; massive glaciers and towering waterfalls can be seen along the way. Upon reaching Seward, the train comes to a halt on the shores of Resurrection Bay, offering easy connections to Kenai Fjords National Park. A seven-hour layover allows plenty of time in Seward before the return rail journey to Anchorage that evening.
The Alaska Railroad’s flagship train. Each day in the summer, the Denali Star departs Anchorage for the 12-hour journey north to Fairbanks, while a sister train in Fairbanks makes the same trip in the reverse. Along the way, the Denali Star stops in Wasilla, Talkeetna and Denali National Park. On a clear day, passengers enjoy spectacular views of the train’s namesake mountain: Denali, the tallest peak in North America.
