Alaska is a truly unique destination for so many reasons, not just for of its spectacular landscapes. Because the Aleutian Islands cross over the 180-degree longitude line, Alaska is in fact the westernmost, northernmost, and easternmost state, and, like California, was once the great undiscovered frontier of America. It is rugged and wild with glaciers, countless rivers and lakes, majestic mountain peaks, some active volcanoes, and nearly 34,000 miles of shoreline. Our exciting tour is designed to cover all the fascinating and scenic railway journeys in Alaska, including the legendary Alaska Railroad and the White Pass & Yukon Railroad (WP&YR). Along the way, we’ll spy some extraordinary wildlife including bears, eagles and whales in some incredible landscapes. You’ll experience the best that Alaskan hospitality can offer in its vibrant cities and towns, and also see magnificent natural wonders as you answer the call of the wild.
