Our tour is designed to cover both of the railways in Alaska - a sort of ‘clear Alaska’ - including the legendary Alaska Railroad and the White Pass & Yukon Railroad (WP&YR).

On the Denali Star and Coastal Classic trains we will travel ‘GoldStar’, which includes a confirmed seat in the upper-level observation car. Contact Guidepost Rail Tours for reservations. (PTG)
