Train to Grand Canyon National Park

Trips to Grand Canyon

There are few North American sites as recognizable as the Grand Canyon. The largest canyon in the world, stretching over 277 miles, it has been long regarded as one of the greatest natural wonders of the world and has been given UNESCO World Heritage Site distinction. The scenery remains practically unchanged from when President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed that "the Grand Canyon fills me with awe," and declared it "the one great sight which every American should see." From the extraordinary, panoramic views of the South Rim to the less-traveled, ruggedly tranquil North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park offers the kind of scenery that can only be described as profound.

The Grand Canyon, however, is more than a mere landmark for a photo-op, and the best Grand Canyon train tours present it in all its glory. Tour packages featuring the Grand Canyon often begin with rail travel via Amtrak trains from Chicago or from Los Angeles to the city of Flagstaff, Arizona. It is here that travelers make their way to Williams and embark on a train ride to the Grand Canyon aboard the historic Grand Canyon Railway. The scenic route travels directly to the South Rim, the starting point for many grandiose adventures.

Vacations By Rail offers a vast selection of escorted and independent tour packages that highlight the finest features of this landmark site and Grand Canyon Railway. Choose a vacation that includes a float trip down the formidable Colorado River or guided Grand Canyon bus tours to some of the South Rim's most beautiful lookouts, including striking Desert View Watchtower, from which you can watch the sunset color the ancient landscape. In your free time, take a self-guided or ranger guided hike or descend into the canyon on the back of a mule - the sturdy, tried-and-true Grand Canyon tour. Embark on a tour to the great parks of the southwest and combine Grand Canyon touring with Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon tours, Arches and Moab, among popular destinations in Canyon Country. Departing from destinations all over the country, Grand Canyon vacation packages are nothing short of memorable.
