Holiday Snow Train to Leavenworth, WA

 

Near the 4000 foot summit, the train transits the Cascade Tunnel—the second longest in North America and enters the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, a winter wonderland with ski slopes and ice-choked rivers.

 

 

Seattle, Washington, November 11, 2015 - A trip to the North Pole isn't in the cards this Christmas. But who needs negative temps and tons of travel, when you can join Alki Tours on the only daylight train to the legendary Christmas town of Leavenworth.

 

The fun begins as you board the train departing from King Street Station (303 S Jackson St, Seattle, WA), Edmonds Station (211 Railroad Ave., Edmonds, WA) , or at Everett Station (3201 Smith Ave., Everett, WA).  Passenger cars are decorated to the hilt and furnished with cozy seats to make the journey memorable.  Along the way enjoy a catered Continental breakfast.  The changing scenery outside will compete for your attention on board the train as oompah-pah bands, jazz bands, carolers, shifty sailors, magicians and Santa strolls through the aisles.  Near the 4000 foot summit, the train transits the Cascade Tunnel—the second longest in North America and enters into a winter wonderland with ski slopes and ice-choked rivers.  At approximately 12:30pm, the train rolls to a stop in Leavenworth. 


Upon arrival in Leavenworth, the fun continues in the streets of this Bavarian mountain town that’s dressed to look and feel, as the New York Times wrote, “a bit like the interior of a snow globe.” Guests take in the season and roam around this “perfect place to spark the holiday spirit,” where horse-drawn carriages glide down the roads, carolers stroll, and vendors sell holiday fare.  Then re-board the train for dinner and more entertainment.
