See the Unseen West

Like Rocky Mountaineer's three Canadian rail routes, this new two-day Rockies to the Red Rocks route is steeped in history and full of opportunities to explore the magnificent scenery and iconic destinations of the region. Natural archways and chromatic deserts are just the beginning. The train winds alongside rivers, through mountain ranges and past ancient rock canyons as it travels between the mile-high city of Denver and the red rock formations of Moab.

The Route

Rockies to the Red Rocks is filled with highlights best seen by train, including Ruby Canyon, Mount Logan and the Continental Divide. You can travel west from Denver to Moab or from Moab east to Denver.

Day 1: Moab to Glenwood Springs

Get comfortable and meet our Hosts as you depart from Moab in the afternoon, where you'll set out on your journey to Glenwood Springs. As you begin your journey, enjoy dinner and a beverage while taking in the scenic views of Mount Garfield and the stunning rock formations lining the cliffs in Ruby Canyon. Then take in the stunning mountain views as you cross the Utah-Colorado border before arriving in the resort town of Glenwood Springs. Sip on our signature cocktail as you approach your overnight destination. Disembark and reminisce about your day in the comfort of your cozy hotel room.

Day 2: Glenwood Springs to Moab

Leave beautiful Glenwood Springs rested and relaxed as you continue heading east for another day of extraordinary views towards Denver. Wake up and warm up to a two-course hot breakfast while watching the morning light bounce off the rugged canyons as you tour along the Colorado River. Then celebrate crossing the continental divide with a sparkling wine toast while cutting through 6.3 miles of mountain in Moffatt Tunnel. Enjoy a three-course regionally-inspired lunch as Hosts captivate you with stories of the region as you take in the views of picturesque Byers Canyon and Gore Canyon. Sip on our signature cocktail as you approach the vibrant city of Denver. Arrive and explore the "Mile High City".
