Alaska is consistently voted as one of the most scenic, varied and dramatic places in the world when it comes to scenery and landscapes. This accounts for the numerous motorhomes and camper vans you’ll see driving along the Parks, Denali or Seward Highway, pulling up every now and again to take in some spectacular vista. However, there’s another great way to discover the best of Alaska and that is on board the Alaska Railroad. Here are our most scenic train journeys, starting in Fairbanks and are an ideal extension to your self drive tour, Alaska Ferry Trip or Inside Passage cruise. Board the last full-service railroad in North America or one of the privately operated trains. Admire the breathtaking nature in glass-domed or regular rail car compartments - all with large panorama windows ensuring unobstructed views of snowcapped mountain ranges, pristine scenery and wildlife. Fairbanks is the perfect change over point for a journey into Alaska’s interior and Arctic Region. Founded by a gold prospector in 1901, Fairbanks, like many other towns in Alaska, struggled until the construction of the Trans-Alaska pipeline in the mid 1970s. Now this eclectic mix of log cabins, modern office buildings and a university campus is recognised as Alaska’s gateway to the Arctic. Several tours are available from Fairbanks, including trips to the Arctic Circle, the native village Fort Yukon or Chena Hot Springs Resort. A popular activity is the Gold Dredge No. 8 tour or the Riverboat Discovery Cruise on the Nenana River. Check out these adventures to easily fill the long days — just don’t forget to sleep at some point!
