National Park Vacations

America's National Parks

America's national parks were born of the idea to protect the country's natural wonders for all to enjoy. The country's first national park, Yellowstone, was established in 1872, and today, the United States is home to 58 national parks, each showcasing spectacular treasures. A visit to Yellowstone brings fumaroles, geysers, and sparkling lakes. At Yosemite in California, towering ancient trees paint a lush scene against stoic mountains. Arches National Park brings amazing sandstone arches and colorful rock formations, while Grand Canyon National Park offers breathtaking vistas of sweeping red canyon plunging deep into the earth. The tallest mountain in the United States, Mt. Denali, sits proudly amongst the vast landscape of Denali National Park. And this is just a sampling of the best national parks; each park brings its own splendor and vast expanses of land that are home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.

For a unique vacation in the USA, visit one or more of these national parks by train. Some of the country's most popular parks, such as Glacier National Park and Grand Canyon National Park, are situated along iconic rail routes that offer daily service to these must-see destinations. Other parks, including Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Teton, and Arches, are easily accessible by bus, car or motorcoach.

Vacations By Rail offers nearly 50 vacation packages that highlight these fantastic destinations. Perfect for families, for seniors and for adventurers of all walks of life, national park vacations take many forms. Select from escorted tours that are guided by tour managers brimming with information about the railroads and parks that lie ahead, or embark on a rail-drive expedition that combines the romance of rail travel with a self-guided road trip. Select packages even include cruise segments that present protected lands and scenic waterways from a floating vantage point.

“We booked an Alaskan vacation through Vacations By Rail. Everything from customizing the itinerary, booking the vacation and the vacation itself went so smoothly. We were so impressed with the trains and their staff. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. The trains were comfortable and the meals very good. It was absolutely amazing to be in the glass dome cars and watch the scenery and wildlife. Our vacation was so stress free as everything was so organized. We never had to worry about our luggage. It was always where it was supposed to be! We were spoiled and I want to book all future vacations through Vacations by Rail and travel by train!! We cannot say enough good things.

“Our agent, Frank H, was great! He answered all of my many questions and together we discussed which was the right travel package for us. Everything ran like clockwork in Alaska. Our shuttles were on time, our reservations were waiting for us and the trip was everything and more that I had hoped for. I would definitely use them again!

5 stars
“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.

“Alaska was amazing. I am so thankful that we chose Vacations by Rail. Everything is handled for you. You go to the hotel, they give you your key, when you leave you hand in your key and move on. We had a full seven-day adventure we will never forget.
