Rocky Mountaineer's Rockies to the Red Rocks

For over 30 years, Rocky Mountaineer has been providing fantastic train journeys through the Rocky Mountains of Western Canada. And now you can experience their spectacular trains and vacations in America's Southwest with their new route, the Rockies to the Red Rocks.

This 2-day adventure from the mile-high city of Denver, Colorado, to the red rock formations of Moab, Utah, has an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

The luxurious onboard experience includes glass-dome cars, stellar service, storytelling by Onboard Hosts, and regionally inspired cuisine.

The train winds along the Colorado River for much of its journey, through mountain ranges and past waterfalls and ancient rock canyons, as it travels at a slow pace of 30 mph so you can take in all the beautiful scenery.

Explore Denver on one end of your journey and Moab on the other, including the breathtaking National Parks nearby like The Arches National Park, home to more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches.
