The « Rockies to the Red Rocks » route is a two-day train journey between Denver and Moab with an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs. Trains travel between Denver and Glenwood Springs along the Colorado River and through a series of canyons with sheer, rugged cliffs. The route between Glenwood Springs and Moab offers a variety of scenery, including mountain views, desert cliffs, and rock formations.
Guests on the new multi-day daily route can enjoy storytelling, regional cuisine and a beautiful landscape on board in the glass dome cars of the trains. The company works with local tourism organizations, hotels and tour operators to create bespoke vacation packages that include tours, activities and stays in Denver and Moab so that guests can experience more of the area. This new route is offered in addition to the three Canadian rail routes between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.
“The work on finding a new route has been going on for several years as we had to find a special place with many of the same features as western Canada – incredible scenery, iconic destinations, and the option to spend the day. Multi-day trip that is best experienced by train, « said Steve Sammut, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountaineer. « Rockies to the Red Rocks will have all of this and more, and is an opportunity to use our award-winning Rocky Mountaineer experience to showcase the epic landscape of the Southwestern United States. ”
