First-ever luxury train journey between Denver, Colorado, and Moab, Utah, with an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs is part of Rocky Mountaineer’s highly anticipated Southwest United States debut. In 2022, a seven-month season is planned for the new route, which begins on August 15 and runs through November 19.
The Rockies to Red Rocks route is a two-day rail journey that includes all of the Rocky Mountaineer’s premium elements. In addition to glass-domed train coaches, guests can look forward to breathtaking scenery, onboard storytelling and delicious cuisine.
Additionally, guests will travel alongside the Colorado River and through a series of canyons with steep, rugged rock walls between Denver and Glenwood Springs; while the route between Glenwood Springs and Moab showcases mountain vistas and rock formation. Culinary delights prepared with ingredients from the Southwest U.S. will be served directly to guests’ seats, so they can take in the scenery while they eat.
There are currently three Rocky Mountaineer routes in Western Canada that run between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies towns of Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper.
When it comes to travel, Rocky Mountaineer understands that it is more important than ever to provide a safe environment for passengers. For this reason and others, the trains are outfitted with high-end air filtration systems, in addition to extensive health screening and disinfection protocols.
“This new Rockies to the Red Rocks route is a celebration that has been several years in the making as we continuously seek unique locations with incredible scenery and iconic destinations that are best experienced by train. We look forward to welcoming guests for a train journey that delivers the incredible experience and award-winning service that Rocky Mountaineer is well known for while they enjoy the epic scenery, flavours and hospitality of the Southwest United States.”Peter Armstrong, Founder and Interim CEO of Rocky Mountaineer
