Winter Tours

Winter season reveals a "cool" side of Alaska that you just have to see.  A laid back atmosphere allows people time to tell stories that were myth for you once upon a time.  Don't mistake the leisurely pace with a lack of activity.  Your winter play list is long, and it starts with the Alaska Railroad.

You can mush a dog sled, learn about Alaska's past in its many museums, explore the backcountry on cross-country skis, search the skies for the northern lights, board a bush plane and fly across the legendary Arctic Circle or soak in hot springs surrounded by snowdrifts with twinkling northern lights overhead.

Our winter train schedule starts with a run north from Anchorage to Fairbanks on Saturdays and returns from Fairbanks south to Anchorage on Sundays. Or take the fly/rain option and ride the train in one direction and fly Alaska Airlines back. Finally, extend your stay, customize your own adventure and choose a wide selection of daytrips and activities based in Anchorage and Fairbanks.
