Alaska Railroad Anchorage to Seward Standard (Adventure Class)
Relax and view the scenic beauty of a ride on the Alaska Railroad, the last full-service railroad in the United States. Sit back and enjoy the comfortable seating and large picture windows. The train features on board hosts and a cafe offering 'grab and go' menu items.
The route between Anchorage and Seward is considered by many to be the most scenic in the state. After traveling through Anchorage you will descend through the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. This area, also commonly known as Potter's Marsh, is a good place to spot migratory birds, water fowl and moose. Your trip continues along the Turnagain Arm, a body of water featuring the world's second highest tides at over 30 feet. Beluga whales can often be seen following salmon on the incoming tide, and Dall sheep frequent rocky mountain sides. After passing Girdwood and Portage the track turns and enters some of Alaska's most pristine wilderness area. Be sure to have your camera ready as you pass Spencer Glacier, Bartlett Glacier and travel through Grandview Pass. As you descend towards Seward you will pass Kenai Lake. The turquoise blue color of this 16-mile long lake is a result of sunlight striking suspended glacial silt in the water.
Please note that Alaska Railroad offers two levels of service between Anchorage and Seward; Standard (also known as "Adventure Class") and GoldStar Dome. Many people prefer the standard class for its single level stability, generous seating and the ability to easily walk between different cars on the train. The GoldStar Dome is the top-of-the-line rail service featuring the newest rail cars, the largest picture windows and the finest dining options with all-inclusive meals. Alaska Tour & Travel is happy to offer our guests the choice of different levels of service.
