Travel between Anchorage and Fairbanks aboard the Alaska Railroad's Aurora Winter Train for an unforgettable journey through some of Alaska's most inspiring scenery. As the train whispers its way past snow-blanketed landscapes, you can't help but notice the peacefulness that permeates this land of Aurora Borealis. Arctic-blue skies provide the perfect setting for glimpses of Denali. Journey to Fairbanks to watch a splendid display of northern lights. The weekend rail-fly option from Anchorage or Fairbanks lets you cover 500 miles of wild Alaska in just two days.
Choose from a variety of accommodations in Anchorage and Fairbanks and extend your stay in either location. Add on a day trip or overnight excursion to Chena Hot Springs Resort for a good mineral soak, just 60 miles from Fairbanks. Visit the Aurora Ice Museum, the largest year-round ice environment in the world. The ice structure is created from over 1,000 tons of ice and snow, all harvested at Chena Hot Springs. Climb an Ice Tower, curl up in a Polar Bear Bed, watch a game of life size chess, or pull up a stool at the Stoli Ice Bar and have a martini poured through a sculpted ice fish into your very own sculpted ice glass.
Extend your stay in Fairbanks and go on a guided winter journey by land or air across the Arctic Circle. Travel north by day to experience Alaska's Arctic and south by night to scan the northern skies for the amazing Aurora.
