From the instant you board the Alaska Railroad coaches, you know that you are in for a treat. The breathtaking beauty of the Alaska landscape is brought to you through panoramic windows, and the nature and history presentations by lifelong Alaskan conductors and tour guides make this travel by rail one of the most unique and enjoyable travel experiences of a lifetime.
All coaches feature comfortable forward-facing seats, classic recliners, and outdoor viewing areas. Experience the Alaska wilderness while enjoying the luxury of circa-1950s style coaches, an upper viewing dome, and a dining car complete with polished silver and sparkling crystal. This dining experience rivals the best restaurants in the state, and there is no restaurant in Alaska with a comparable backdrop.
Explore the GoldStar service available on the Denali Star train. As a GoldStar guest, you will bask in the luxury of a first-class multi-level coach with exquisite decor and a private open-air viewing deck. Dine in comfort in thirty-six dining room seats with views through picture windows. Your dome-level reclining seats can rotate to accommodate groups of four and let you share the experience with friends. A full-time bar attendant is available for those looking for libations.
If traveling round trip between Anchorage and Denali National Park, consider taking the Alaska Railroad one way and the Anchorage Denali Express motorcoach Service the other for two different viewing and traveling experiences.
You can book Alaska Rail Tours with us and travel in luxurious privately-owned dome cars at prices just a fraction higher than Alaska Railroad’s Adventure Class.
