West Coast Tours

Western United States

Home to some of the country's most inspiring destinations, the western U.S. is a treasure trove awaiting discovery. Tours of America's West can take you across the frontier to Colorado to explore the rugged Rocky Mountains and the historic towns that dot their peaks. Ride heritage rail lines through the stunning landscape or continue to destinations such as Salt Lake City, the cowboy town of Jackson, and San Francisco with smooth connections to places like Muir Woods with its Giant Sequoia groves and Yosemite National Park, home to Yosemite Falls - the highest waterfall in North America - as well as Half Dome and El Capitan.

Other West Coast tours focus on America's beautiful national parks, where the grandeur of nature surrounds at every turn. Montana's Glacier National Park is home to glacier-carved mountains and one of the country's most famous roadways, Going-to-the-Sun Road. At Yellowstone National Park, an incredible variety of flora and fauna sit aside waterfalls and deep canyons. Yellowstone's true claim to fame, though, is its geothermal activity that presents in its hot springs and geysers. Your tour itinerary may take you to Mt. Rushmore, which showcases the visages of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, or to South Dakota's Badlands, where colorful rock formations highlight the dry terrain.

Some train tours to the Pacific Northwest feature Seattle, the crown jewel of the region. While this city is a destination in its own right, it is also ideally located as a launching point for Alaska cruise vacations and Western Canada rail tours. Whether you travel from the East Coast to the West Coast or focus your family vacation on the Wild West solely, there is no shortage of trip ideas to explore.

Northern Lights at Borealis Basecamp
03 Apr 2024
Carol
5 stars
“The Borealis Basecamp location is unique. Two nights were just right for us. The igloos were cozy. May be nice to have some different games available. The staff was excellent. All well coordinated. Received information in time and the instructions on the vouchers helped. Liked our stay at Springhill in Fairbanks. Did you know that the bus system in Fairbanks is free if you are over 60? The Aurora train was comfortable and enjoyed mixing with others in the dining car. We booked a separate city tour package in Anchorage. No free breakfast at the hotel. Some amenities were not free. We found a great breakfast at Snow City Cafe. Will definitely explore Vacations by Rail again. Customer Service was spot on!
