Check out Summer Vacation Packages on The Alaskan Railroad

in Alaska, Trip Locations

Did you know that Alaska has over 6,000 miles of coastline, 3,000 rivers and over three million lakes? It’s easy to see then why a summer vacation in Alaska is such an easy choice.

With so many outdoors activities and adventures to experience it is nearly impossible to experience all that Alaska has to offer vacationers in just one trip. The terrain in Alaska is a variety of coastline lowlands, forests and a number of mountain ranges. This makes travel between the cities of Alaska both beautiful, but challenging. Most Alaska vacationers dedicate themselves to a region or city, and come back on different vacations to experience new areas. There are a few ways however, to see Alaska as a whole while traveling. One of them is the Alaskan Railroad.

The Alaskan Railroad began in 1903 where it started in Seward, Alaska. When it was first constructed it only extended 50 miles north. Today however, the Alaskan Railroad accesses a number of Alaskan cities such as Anchorage, Wasilla, Talkeetna, Fairbanks and Whittier. The railroad is one of the only ways to see the interior of Alaska in its natural state because the railroad moves through terrain that cars and hikers cannot access. Vacationers are likely to see wildlife, gorgeous scenery and enjoy the luxuries of the railroad along the way. There are a variety of different summer vacation packages to choose from, including packages that offer outdoor excursions along different depots and guided tours.
