Lakes & Mountains in the USA

Lakes and Mountains Holidays

Some of the best rail vacation destinations in America include the country's scenic lakes and mountains. From Cadillac Mountain in Maine to Lake Tahoe in the west, these sights weave a picturesque backdrop for a rail vacation. Consider a Colorado rail adventure featuring visits to the state's best mountain towns. Stand in awe of North America's highest mountain peak, Denali, on an Alaska rail tour. And there are few better ways to admire the changing seasons than from mountain overlooks, whether it is New Hampshire's Mt. Washington with views of six states and Canada or the Smoky Mountains.

Lake vacations also inspire some great rail itineraries in the USA. From Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park and the Midwest's Great Lakes to Lake Champlain and Lake Winnipesaukee in New England, still waters and tranquil settings set the tone for a relaxing getaway.

5 stars
“We had a great experience in Alaska. All of the hotels and travel itineraries were spot-on! The driving part of the trip was an adventure in itself. The lack of signage on the highways made it challenging at times, but added to the adventure in a good way. We highly recommend this trip. Alaska is magnificent in so many ways and this tour gave us the opportunity to explore on our own rather than having every minute planned.

“It was great. So well organized. Aside the lovely oceanview stateroom on the ship, all the land accommodations were very nice, roomy and comfortable. Very pleased. So impressed that our luggage was always awaiting us in our rooms, no matter what the entire trip. The trains were awesome too.

Smoky Mountain Rail Adventure

John Bielot
5 stars
“What an amazing trip! The train rides were super. Our tour guide, Ed, was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our bus driver, Vic, was beyond words - I don't know how he drove that bus on some of the streets, especially in Nashville. The included meals were fine. I really liked the location of the Nashville hotel as it was within walking distance to many restaurants and museums. Dollywood's Dream More Resort was beyond words! The Biltmore Mansion is a sight to see; I've been to the Newport mansions ("summer cottages") many times, and they are very tiny compared to the Biltmore. I would highly recommend a Vacations by Rail trip, and plan to do one again, hopefully next year.
