Luxury domed railcars offer a fully immersive experience. Take in 360° views from assigned, forward-facing seats. Step onto an open-air platform to feel fresh mountain breezes. Listen as guides narrate every spectacular sight.
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.

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.
