See the unseen West: Travel by train between Moab and Denver

Journey through two days of extraordinary landscapes between Moab, Utah and Denver, Colorado. Vast canyons, inspiring deserts, natural archways and enchanting hoodoos are just the start. Available in SilverLeaf Service, this Rocky Mountaineer rail route is filled with highlights best seen by train, including Ruby Canyon, Mount Garfield and crossing the Continental Divide.

Beyond the railway tracks, you'll discover some of the USA's most beautiful National Parks, including Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. You'll also take a road trip along one of the country's most spectacular roads - Scenic Highway 12. And what would a trip to America's desert country be without a visit to Sin City - Las Vegas?

You'll be able to admire the scenery during your journey from the large panoramic windows, and your host will provide informative commentary along the way. You'll also have free time to explore the towns you spend the night in, and full days of sightseeing on some tours.

When does the Rocky Mountaineer run?

When does the Rocky Mountaineer run?

The Rocky Mountaineer is in operation between April and October with twice-weekly departures.

In late spring, you'll experience cooler temperatures - perfect for exploring! This is also when you can witness the flowers blooming (even in the desert) and rushing rivers and waterfalls thanks to the melting snow.  
Summer can be very hot in the desert (motorcoaches and train coaches are air-conditioned) - it will be slightly cooler, and exceptionally beautiful in the mountains as the landscapes come to life. 
Early autumn sees the leaves beginning to change colours - a spectacular thing to see. It's also cooler across the Southwest so great for getting around.
