Activity Details
Departing from downtown Anchorage, the Coastal Classic Train travels south along the rugged coastline of Turnagain Arm, with dramatic views of the Chugach Mountains plunging directly to the sea. At the end of Turnagain Arm, the tracks veer away from the road system into the backcountry wilderness – and what many consider to be the most scenic stretch of the Alaska Railroad, accessible only by train. Watch for views of massive glaciers, steep river canyons, and cascading waterfalls. The train arrives to Seward at 11 am, allowing plenty of time to explore this charming port town – or opt to take a marine wildlife & glacier day cruise into the nearby Kenai Fjords.

  • This has to be the best way to get to Seward to begin your Alaskan Cruise adventure! We stayed in Anchorage for 2 days before getting on the Alaskan Railroad for this once in a lifetime, one-way trip from Anchorage to Seward. The ride was smooth, the visibility was excellent and our operators provided informative narration throughout this 4 hour journey. We were told not to miss this trip and it did not disappoint!

  • The railroad experience was informative and the sights were breathtaking! The check-in process was well organized given the high volume of passengers. The windows were extremely large and the seats were very comfortable.

  • The train ride was smooth, quiet and beautiful trip to Seward. Check in appeared to be crowded and slightly disorganized but we arrived early and it went quicker than expected. We arrived a little later to Seward than planned but the boats waited for tours. That said when I got to my hotel later that evening 2 of our 3 suitcases were missing. No one called despite my name on tags and claim tix. I called the rail and they did have my bags back in Anchorage and offered to send to Seward the next day but I was going back to anchorage so they held them. I spent 36 hours in same clothes without luggage. They didn’t seem too apologetic, “it happens”. I would still ride again for the beauty.
