Running south through some 240 miles of constantly evolving Alaska scenery, the Park to Park motorcoach line takes passengers from Talkeetna to Seward in a single day. The ride aboard a modern Park Connection motorcoach takes about seven hours and includes a lunch stop in Anchorage.
Travel some 240 miles of constantly evolving Alaska scenery.
The coach departs from town via the Talkeetna Spur Road. The road weaves through dense spruce tree forests, eventually reaching the Parks Highway and opening out into the mouth of the Knik Arm. The area just outside of Wasilla is a wildlife preserve, and it's not uncommon for passengers to spot moose in the marshes.
In Anchorage, all passengers deboard the bus for a 1.5-hour lunch break. There are several nearby restaurants. The Seward bus boards again at 2:45 PM and departs downtown at 3 PM. The trip continues along the Seward Highway, around the Turnagain Arm, and through beautiful mountains on the Kenai Peninsula. The motorcoach arrives in Seward around 5:45 PM.
The Park Connection operates one trip daily from Talkeetna to Seward. The route departs from the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge. The motorcoach drops off at the Seward Windsong Lodge, Seward Cruise Dock, and Small Boat Harbor.
The Park Connection runs a fleet of modern 52-seat Prevost motorcoaches. Passengers onboard enjoy comfortable reclining seats equipped with seatbelts, footrests, armrests, and outlets. Seating is first-come, first-served. There is one lavatory located in the rear of the bus. Large luggage is stowed by Park Connection staff in lower bays. Guests can store their smaller items in overhead bins.
Park Connection drivers provide casual commentary on the surrounding area, keeping it light to give passengers time to relax and enjoy the picturesque wonder of Alaska's landscape. Photo stops may be made at the driver's discretion as weather and time permits.
What to Bring
The motorcoaches have large picture windows at every seat, so bring a camera onboard to capture the scenery along the way.
The Park Connection allows two bags per person and one small carry on item. Additional fees may apply for excessively large oversized bags or items like bicycles, fish boxes, fishing equipment, or climbing equipment. There is no charge for items like strollers, car seats, wheelchairs, scooters, or oxygen concentrators.
