Recommended Posts

My husband and I will be on the land portion of our trip next month (Y3C) starting in Skagway and ending in Anchorage. I was wondering what the best sides to sit on the transportation would be.

1. train Skagway to Fraser.

2. motor coach Fraser to Whitehorse

3. motor coach Whitehorse to Dawson

4. airplane Dawson to Fairbanks

5, motor coach Fairbanks to Denali

6. train Denali to Anchorage

thank you for any and all help.

First I'm going to say that the views are spectacular, regardless of what side you're on.

 

Second, these are my opinions, and certainly other may have their own.

 

1. Assuming it's the same train tracks that the White Pass train uses, left side.

3. Hard to say, but left side might win out by a bit.

6. Right side for views of Mt. McKinley, left side for views without a highway in the foreground.

 

We did the tour before the airplane leg was included, so can't answer the others.

#6 - seats are assigned, thank goodness. If you don't intend to move around, the left side gets the nod. However, having just taken this ride this last month (June) I was up and all over for pictures from each side with no problems. Riding the HAL Mt. McKinley Explorer will be one of the greatest highlights of your trip - enjoy! :)
