Exploring the epic scenery of the Southwest United States by train

Rocky Mountaineer is bringing its luxury train journeys to a new route in the Southwest United States. The Rockies to the Red Rocks route will be a two-day rail journey between Denver, Colorado, and Moab, Utah.

Rocky Mountaineer offers an exclusive travel experience with unparalleled journeys in its spacious glass-domed train coaches thanks to the pristine scenery, local gourmet cuisine, and attentive service.

Rockies to the Red Rocks

This year Rocky Mountaineer plans to bring its luxury train journeys to a new route in the Southwest United States. “Over the past 30 years, Rocky Mountaineer has become renowned for our world-class train travel experiences, and now we are opening our newest train experience in the region where train travel history began,” said Peter Armstrong, founder of Rocky Mountaineer. “This region, with its magnificent scenery, national parks, vast opportunities to explore, will delight millions.” 

The Rockies to the Red Rocks route will showcase the epic scenery of the Southwest United States. The route will be a two-day rail journey between Denver, Colorado, and Moab, Utah, with an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. 

The new route will offer many of the same features found on a journey in Western Canada: incredible scenery, iconic destinations, and the option for an all daytime, multi-day journey that is best experienced by train.

This new route will be in addition to the three rail routes that run in Western Canada, between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies towns of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.  

Rocky Mountaineer will launch the route with a preview season of 40 departures across 10 weeks from August 15 to October 23, 2021. From 2022 on a full season schedule will be offered. The company is working with local tourism organizations, hotels and tour operators to curate custom vacation packages that feature tours, activities, and stays in Denver and Moab, so guests can experience even more of the region.
