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.

New England Autumn Rails & Sails

“We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our tour director, Mary was excellent. She did a very good job of improvising when things didn't go according to planned.

“Mike the tour guide, and manny the bus driver were professional, thoughtful, and ready to assist those of us on the tour. You might consider deleting one, or more sites to allow us all more time at the other stops. I’d recommend building into the tour more down time.

Alaska the Greatland

Clara
5 stars
“The trip was excellent and our tour guide, Beth Mohan, and bus driver, Joe Hall, were fantastic. When the weather canceled our tram ride up the mountain, Beth had an alternative at sea Aquarium which was lovely. Especially loved watching the puffins. Wish the rail company had told us the bus was going everywhere with us with our luggage as the train restrictions on size made it difficult and unable to pack some necessities like a pillow. I thought the train would be my favorite but the tour boat out into the sound was even more impressive getting up close to the glaciers and seeing other animals. Would definitely reommend this trip to others.

America's Great National Parks

DENISE LILLIS
5 stars
“This was a wonderful trip - Julie Wilkes our guide went above and beyond to make sure we saw all important sites. Everywhere we stayed was great! The food was also great. The train ride was fun and Julie made sure we were well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who likes to be on the go and experience as much as possible. We heard Am Track was updating their sleeping cars which would interest us as we took this trip in coach. My one recommendation for this trip would be to take the extra day at Glacier and add it to the time spent in Yellowstone - could definitely use more time there. Also the eating situation at the Canyon Lodge was the worst of any meal situations. Hopefully they will be able to improve this. All in all a great trip - such beautiful parks hard to complain.

HELEN ELIAS
5 stars
“My overnight train from Seattle to Whitefish was fun with beautiful scenery as we left Seattle. Bus tours with driver Glen and tourguide Bill were fun, informative and safe! The stops at the national park treasures were timely with planned tours and personal time to walk the rim trails and explore the mudpots and geysers. The only negative was the trip to Lake Powell - hot with slow boat ride - it was not my treasure!
