Each year, we are proud to continue a cherished holiday tradition: the Alaska Railroad Holiday Trains.

These special departures are a wonderful way for the entire family to get into the spirit of the holidays.

There’s all sorts of fun to be had aboard the Holiday Trains: a coloring contest, holiday carolers, a magician, door prizes and even a visit from the jolly old elf himself: Santa Claus!

NEW due to popular demand! Added day: December 19, 2015.
