Winter Train Tours from Seattle to Leavenworth

Explore the Pacific Northwest and Beyond on a Snow Train

Each Saturday in December, Alki Tours, operates the only day-trip train that goes from Seattle to the winter wonderland of Leavenworth to see the annual Tree Lighting Festival. On each departure, 800 passengers board the special chartered Amtrak train to enjoy a catered continental breakfast, onboard entertainment including strolling musicians, magicians and of course Santa. Near the 4000 foot summit, the train will transit Cascade Tunnel — the second longest in North America. At approximately 12:30 pm, the train will roll to a stop in Leavenworth.

There is no place like Leavenworth during the Christmas season. The town is dressed to the hilt for Christmas with chestnuts roasting on an open fire, carolers strolling the streets, food booths, sleigh rides, local crafts, outdoor entertainment and more. At dusk, everyone gathers to sing "Silent Night" and witness the lighting of the village as it is transformed into a magical sea of lights. Afterward, we'll reboard the train for a cozy trip home. A catered dinner is served on the return trip and the entertainment will continue.
