Depart Denali by rail on a journey through Alaska’s rugged interior, over Broad Pass and along the Susitna River. Photograph panoramic landscapes from the train as vistas of endless wild country unfurl in every direction.
From Anchorage we drive south to Alyeska Resort, Alaska’s premier ski area, where a host of exciting summer activities is offered. Set in a lush glacial valley in the Chugach Range, Alyeska offers nature and luxury in tandem.
Explore the northernmost temperate rain forest in North America surrounding our lodge, or board the tram to the summit, where you may choose to dine at Seven Glaciers, a 5-star restaurant with views of the ice-bound peaks and Turnagain Arm far below.It takes a few hours to navigate Denali's Park Road from Kantishna to the park entrance. From there, we motored to the train depot and boarded the southbound Alaska Railroad train, heading toward Wasilla. We were Gold-Starring it in a dome car while the landscapes rolled by.
From Wasilla, we jumped back onto our Magic Bus with our trusty driver, Dot. We motored down to Girdwood and the Alyeska Resort.
