Coastal Classic

Anchorage > Girdwood > Seward

Discover why National Geographic Traveler ranked the Alaska Railroad's Coastal Classic Train among their Top Ten Train Rides in North America. A convenient round-trip schedule and picturesque landscapes along the route make the Coastal Classic Train a local favorite. From Anchorage, the train winds along Turnagain Arm and through the backcountry wilderness of the Kenai Peninsula; massive glaciers and towering waterfalls can be seen along the way. Upon reaching Seward, the train comes to a halt on the shores of Resurrection Bay, offering easy connections to Kenai Fjords National Park. A seven-hour layover allows plenty of time in Seward before the return rail journey to Anchorage that evening.
