Ride the Rails

Traveling from Colorado to Utah is going to be a lot more adventurous than before as you can now travel on a luxury train that will take you from between stunning natural vistas. Called the Rockies to the Red Rocks, the two-day train ride is going to be between Denver and Moab. This train journey also features an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs, which is known for its hot springs. So we hope you are excited!

The train has glass dome windows that allow you to see the surroundings. It runs through canyons, rock walls, with beautiful vistas. The train also goes alongside the Colorado River, so safe to say that you must keep your camera charged and ready. Moreover, you can enjoy the choicest of meals on-board.

The train is operated by Rocky Mountaineer, a company that already runs three luxury trains in Western Canada. The route has similar features to the three others in Western Canada, so you have all the elements of a great luxury train ride. There are some iconic destinations on the way, and a luxury train ride from Colorado to Utah is certainly worth your time and money.

The train route is going to become operational beginning August 2021 if all things go according to plan. The train company has collaborated with hotels, tourism operators, and local organizations in order to create a seamless experience for travelers.

The new year is definitely here with some good news, and now we can only hope that the virus dies down, and we can make this incredible train journey happen. For reservations contact a Rocky Mountaineer specialist, Dana Hampton, Nancy Cottingham, or Jeannell Charman.

This is a complicated product. There are two levels of service on most trains but only silver in the US. There are many travel options, departing Denver or Moab, one-way or circle trip, packages before or after to Las Vegas or Salt Lake City. The two-day one-night one-way trip begins at $2500 for two in Silverleaf train car. Trips can go up to 8 days with several options. Any idea when you would like to travel?
