The McKinley Explorer® Premier Rail Experience

Every cruisetour features a trip on the McKinley Explorer®, our private 2-level, glass-domed railcar that travels hundreds of miles into Alaska's wild interior.

Why Guests Love the McKinley Explorer® Train

Sit back and relax as pure Alaska wilderness rolls by. Cross the dramatic Hurricane Gulch and travel through Broad Pass while a guide narrates the experience. Watch breathlessly as the clouds part, and Mt. Denali appears on the horizon. While the scenery is as rugged as it gets, the train offers unparalleled comfort and service.

Routes & Options

The McKinley Explorer® is our train and routes are tailored for our guests' convenience. We have routes between Anchorage and Denali, and routes that go between the ship in Whittier and Denali.
