Route map for the fourteen day trip from Fairbanks to Ketchikan

It's impossible to see all of Alaska in just two weeks, but this itinerary will take you from Interior Alaska, to Denali, and through the Inside Passage. You'll gain an appreciation for the vast and wild land on this nearly 1,200 mile train and ferry vacation. Fly to Fairbanks to begin your Alaska adventure. Depending on where you live, this could add an extra day to your itinerary. The good news is that the Fairbanks International Airport is served by frequent flights from within Alaska as well as from the Lower 48 and even countries like Japan and Germany, so Alaska really is closer than you think.
