Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information


Travel Within Alaska

Travel in Alaska is unlike just about anywhere else: getting from point to point is a worthy endeavor of its own. Whether circling Mount McKinley in a Bush plane or watching miles of untouched tundra roll by from the window of a train, you can't go wrong in selecting a mode of transportation. In fact, the best itineraries include a mix of travel modes.

White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, a designation shared with the Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.

Come experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites from the comfort of vintage parlor cars. See the original Klondike Trail of ‘98 worn into the rocks, a permanent tribute to the thousands of souls who passed this way in search of fortune.

Round-trip train excursions to the White Pass Summit and Fraser Meadows. Combination train/bus tours between Skagway/Fraser/Carcross/Whitehorse. May – September. Credit cards accepted.
