The Rocky Mountaineer, which has been known for its scenic train trips through Western Canada for more than 30 years, now offers train enthusiasts the same luxury experience in Southwestern US while maintaining its routes in Western Canada.

Best seen from the Mountaineer’s expansive glass-dome rail cars, the scenery on this route includes a unique mix of forests, canyons, rivers, and wildlife over the vast landscape of the Southwest US.

The two-day trip between Denver and Moab can be taken in either direction with more than 45 departures in 2022 running from mid-April until the end of October.

Those who would like to take advantage of this photographer’s dream trip can extend their journey up to nine days. Rocky Train Vacations has several options of different lengths that include excursions in addition to the actual train portion, giving guests opportunities to explore Las Vegas, Bryce Canyon, Escalante National Monument, Moab, and more, depending on the length chosen. The company even offers a five-day option that includes a ‘flightseeing’ transfer from Las Vegas to Moab on day two.

On these railway trips, Rocky Train Vacations offers two service levels, SilverLeaf and SilverLeaf Plus. In the glass-dome train coaches, SilverLeaf Service has panoramic views, delicious meals and beverages brought directly to the individual at their seat, complimentary baggage transfer, and memories to last a lifetime.

SilverLeaf Plus Service is an enhanced experience that includes all the benefits of SilverLeaf and adds unlimited access to the lounge car, which has additional indoor space and a small outdoor viewing area to relax and enjoy the scenery. This service level also includes an elevated dining experience with an additional course during some meals and premium alcoholic beverages.

A spokesperson for the company stated, “Our newest rail journey will put you in the heart of the stunning scenery of the American Southwest and is filled with highlights best seen from the comfort of our expansive glass-dome trains.”
