Experience wild, untamed nature, canyons carved by rushing water and mountains moulded by millennia in total luxury
Some sights are just meant to see by train. Relinquishing your complete focus to towering mountains, rugged wilderness and stunning waterfalls—while enjoying world-class service and the luxury of glass-dome windows—on a rail adventure from Rocky Mountaineer will take you places personal vehicles have never been.
Rocky Mountaineer, headquartered in Vancouver, has been operating luxury rail journeys in Western Canada since 1990. It is the largest privately owned luxury tourist train company in the world. As the tourism industry recovers from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rocky Mountaineer has been experiencing a rebound in travellers eager to appreciate the epic scenery along their rail routes.
The company has remained focused on strengthening the business foundations to prepare for future growth. “We have a long-term goal to build on our experience in Western Canada and to continue to expand our offerings to showcase new destinations,” says David McKenna, President & CEO of Rocky Mountaineer. “The first step in this growth was the launch of the new route between Denver, Colorado and Moab Utah, in 2021.”
Rockies to the Red Rocks is the company’s first standalone route outside of Canada. It journeys two days of extraordinary landscapes between Moab, Utah and Denver, Colorado, with an overnight stop in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Vast canyons, inspiring deserts, natural archways and enchanting hoodoos are only the beginning. This route is filled with highlights best seen by train, including Ruby Canyon, Mount Garfield and crossing the Continental Divide. It includes optional curated packages with options to start or end in Las Vegas or Salt Lake City.
“When we were exploring options for a new route, we knew it needed to be in a special location with many of the same features we have in Western Canada—incredible scenery, iconic destinations and the ability to travel by day, over multiple days, through a region that is best experienced by train,” McKenna says. “In the years to come, we will see this established Canadian company become a global leader in tourism with a collection of compelling, memorable experiences to offer travellers worldwide.”
Rocky Mountaineer also offers three journeys that traverse Western Canada through mountain passes and scenic valleys and past scenic valleys and lakes to B.C. and Alberta’s spectacular landscapes. All aboard amazing.
