Alaska trip upcoming - ideas?

Postby Tadman » Tue Aug 02, 2016 11:34 am

Here are the rough parameters:

I'm visiting for business. Probably fly in thursday, have a few meetings. Stay weekend. Train to Fairbanks Sunday. Meeting monday. Train back tuesday. Fly to Juneau weds, then ferry back to Bellingham Weds evening to Saturday.

Suggestions on the train or ferry? Thanks.

...OK, a little late...railroad suggestions...the narrow gauge railroad out of Skagway...our ship docked at Seward...rail from Seward to Anchorage...spent a day or so there...then rail from Anchorage to Denali...spent a number of days there...then rail to Fairbanks...flew home from Fairbanks...the Skagway narrow gauge was the rail highlight...spectacular...
