      Luxury Dome Train Ride from Talkeetna to Fairbanks

      Talkeetna, Alaska, USA
      From (USD) $179 Per Adult / $90 Per Child
      • Wilderness Express: Luxurious, two-story rail cars traveling on the Alaska Railroad transport you in style and comfort, offering leather, forward-facing seats with power ports and the best views of Alaska's small towns and picturesque wilderness through a glass dome.
      • Local experience: Get immersed in the local culture with regional food and drink selections (available for purchase) as well Native Alaskan artwork on display.
      • Guided tour: You'll discover the highlights and history of the area as you view the breathtaking wilderness outside your window with your professional and personable crew narrating the story during your 250 mile journey.
      • Susitna River: Winding 313 miles through south-central Alaska from the Susitna Glacier to Cook Inlet, this body of rushing water clocks in as the nation's 15th largest river.
      • Talkeetna: This tiny town is so quirky and funky, rumor has it that Talkeetna served as inspiration for the fictional Cicely in the popular 90s sitcom, Northern Exposure.
      • Hurricane Gulch: Hope you're not afraid of heights, because your train crosses this creek on a 296 foot-high rail bridge, giving you a bird's-eye view of the wild surroundings.
      • Broad Pass: At 2,300 feet, this is the lowest pass through the Alaska Range so you can choo-choo on your merry way.
      • Nenana River & Canyon: In a 3,000 foot-deep canyon, this glacially-fed river boasts both Class III and IV rapids. With names like Iceworm, Cable Car, Razor Back, and Royal Flush, you know the whitewater views will be spectacular.
      • Denali: North America's tallest summit (known as Mt. McKinley from 1917 to 2015) has reclaimed its original name, which means "the high one" or "the great one." No matter what you call it, the distant view you could catch of the 20,000+ foot-high peak on a clear day will likely leave you speechless.
      About This Talkeetna Tour

      It's some of the most rugged wilderness anywhere. It's also some of the most spectacular country in the world. The Alaskan countryside is as stunning in beauty as it is remote in accessibility. And you get to enjoy the first, without worrying about the second one.

      Your journey departs  from the quaint town of Talkeetna, which was the model for the town in the TV show Northern Exposure, and travels north about 250 miles to Fairbanks, in the heart of of Alaska's interior.

      Along the way you'll travel through 60 miles of backcountry with no road access on the border of Denali National Park while enjoying views of the beautiful mountains, rivers, and pristine Alaskan wilderness. Be ready to take the pictures (and selfies) of a lifetime.

      The guides on the Denali Star will tell you about the history of the area and point things of interest to you, including the local art and sculptures onboard. It's an amazing journey that combines fun, discovery, and some of the most incredible views in the world
