Enjoy 20% off all Alaska Railroad trains, summer and winter, with your membership in NARP. The discount is restricted to Adventure Class fares on the Denali Star, Coastal Classic, Glacier Discovery, Hurricane Turn, and the Aurora Winter Train. The discount is valid only for train fares, and does not include tour or hotel products or packages. Additionally, this discount cannot be combined with other discounts.
