Travel Alaska's scenic byways on the Alaska Park Connection coach service. Featuring comfortable coaches and strategically scheduled daily runs, the Park Connection makes best use of your limited vacation time as you travel through spectacular wilderness areas including Denali National Park, Chugach National Forest, Denali State Park and Chugach State Park. 

The Seward Highway south of Anchorage is the state's only recognized National Scenic Byway. Little wonder -- the drive down Turnagain Arm, over Turnagain and Moose Passes, on past Trail and Kenai Lakes is spectacular and awe-inspiring. 

North of Anchorage the route follows the Parks highway through Denali State Park, where some of the best views of Mt. McKinley can be seen.

We offer three schedules to meet your needs, including two trips daily in both directions between Denali and Anchorage, as well as Anchorage and Seward. 

The Park to Park service is the only transportation link available which allows travel between Denali or Talkeetna and Seward (either direction) in a single day. Visitors who have already spent time in Anchorage will appreciate this money saving feature.

The Seward Express service is great for passengers traveling to Seward for the day to take a Kenai Fjords National Park cruise.
