The Alaska Railroad is your ticket to the most memorable Alaska day trips and excursions. Our summer train schedules pair perfectly with a wide variety of unique Alaska activities: from Anchorage, take the train to Seward for a wildlife and glacier cruise before the return rail journey to Anchorage that evening. Or, spend an afternoon exploring the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop -- a backcountry area only accessible by rail -- with a guided nature walk, ice climbing, or rafting on a glacial river.
Activities abound in every Alaska Railroad destination, and many of the below excursions can be added to customize an Alaska Railroad summer travel package. From flightseeing and glacier cruises to rafting and ice climbing, this is your ultimate guide to summer train trip add-ons.
