Vacations on Amtrak

Amtrak Tours

Traveling through 46 states and offering access to over 500 Amtrak destinations, America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. The travel packages featuring Amtrak trains are just as diverse as the routes themselves. Experience the beauty of the great American West aboard the Southwest Chief, departing from Chicago and traveling through New Mexico and Arizona. Venture to the country's perennially popular national parks, including Grand Canyon, Glacier and Yellowstone, via the railroad. Amtrak vacations aboard the California Zephyr offer a cross-country expedition from the Midwest to San Francisco. You even have the option to explore the historic and exciting destinations of the East Coast with a train trip aboard Amtrak's Acela or Adirondack. Best of all, you may choose between different travel styles for your Amtrak train trips, including independent and escorted journeys.

If you are looking for a weekend trip, Amtrak getaways are the perfect way to get a taste of a region. These packages last just a few days and include fantastic destinations like Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles and even national parks and Niagara Falls. Another way to experience the wonder of the United States is with a combination cruise and train trip. These tours allow travelers to begin their experience with time aboard an Amtrak train, such as the Coast Starlight, the California Zephyr or the Empire Builder, and later join a cruise ship to explore some of the most scenic waterways in the country. Contact an agent to learn how to make your travel dreams a reality.

Empire Builder with Glacier National Park - Chicago to Seattle
18/Sep
Nancy
5 stars
“Vacation by Rail made it very easy to book our trip, and answered all our pre-trip questions quickly. The train staff was polite and helpful, and facilitated boarding and debarking the train. Additionally, the service and qualify of food in the dining car were impressive. We very much enjoyed watching the countryside from our cabin. However, the train tracks themselves have not been well-maintained, making for a rocky riding experience. Sadly, St. Mary's Lodge was experiencing staffing shortages and turmoil, making the dining experience there fairly unenjoyable. The park itself was spectacular. Very glad we made the trip.

“Booking the trip was easy and fast with Ryan's assistance. The trip itself was wonderfully organized, with Joan our Tour Director keeping us well informed throughout the trip. Hotels were great, food was delicious, and Dale our bus driver was wonderful. I'd do this tour again. The step-on guides for Yellowstone and the Black Hills added a lot of great information. The only change I would make would be to take a bedroom instead of a roomette if traveling with two people. The roomette was good during the day but extremely cozy at night.

“Vacations by Rail was great to deal with. Our travel advisor was Suzanne who was both personable & knowledgeable. Our issues were not with Vacations, but rather with Amtrak.We did 2 trips back to back, which included hotel stays. The hotels were high end & wonderful. We would not hesitate to deal with V by R again, & have already recommended them.

“My wife and I had seen many of our national parks, but had never been to the northwest. We took a trip in September sponsored by Vacations By Rail to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Canyonlands, and Arches. We met the remainder of our group (46 in all from various parts of the country) in Chicago along with Jennifer, our guide for the tour. The journey from Chicago to East Glacier, Montana, was long (30 hours), but smooth riding. Our hotel for the next 3 nights was the beautiful Lodge, a very imposing log building built by the Great Western RR in the late 1800s. The scenery was fantastic, especially on our Going to the Sun Road on the famous Red Jammers. We saw lots of game, but no bear or wolves. Our 2 night stay in Yellowstone was equally impressive, especially The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Lots of elk and bison along the way. The Grand Tetons were impressive. If we had to pick our favorite park at this point in the tour, we could not. Each was beautiful in its own way. The highlight of our Tetons portion of the trip was the rafting down the Snake River past the Teton Range. We spent 2 nights in Jackson at The Jackson Lodge, the nicest of our hotels in creature comforts. The highlight of Jackson was our evening at The Bar J Ranch for a chuckwagon dinner (those cowpokes sure do eat well) and country entertainment. A must do evening. I, unfortunately, became ill on our trip to Salt Lake City, and had to return home. I give kudos to Vacations By Rail in arranging such a fantastic trip. They employed a wonderful guide, Jennifer, who was so knowledgeable about every place we went. She and our very capable driver, Glenn, arranged rest stops that were not only spaced just right, but in places that were extremely interesting. One was at a bakery in the middle of nowhere that had the best cinnamon rolls. Another was at a picturesque chapel by the Snake River. Another was next to an elk horn bridge and a candy store. Thank you, Vacations By Rail, for a wonderful trip.
