It’s not too late to plan one last family adventure before school starts. From Fairbanks, catch the Alaska Railroad for a day trip to Denali National Park and return that same night: take the Denali Star Train and spend quality family time onboard the train and exploring the park. And, kids under 12 ride free with a full-price adult.
In Denali, schedule excursions like a guided treasure hunt, husky kennel tour, and horse-drawn covered-wagon ride. The 12-hour day trip itinerary includes round-trip rail fare and time to explore one of Alaska’s most treasured national parks.
