Traveling between America’s states and the Canadian provinces presents an impressive range of vistas, from mountains and forests to deserts and plains. Stunning examples of nature’s beauty in both countries have been protected under the prestigious cloak of National Parks, and national park tours are the best way to experience these untouched lands.
National park train tours connect treasured destinations with beloved parks. A visit to western national parks may begin with a train ride to cities like Flagstaff or East Glacier Park, aboard the Southwest Chief or the Empire Builder before continuing to the West’s treasured parks. See Old Faithful, bubbling hot springs and fumaroles in Yellowstone National Park. Admire the towering rock formations and tumbling waterfalls in Yosemite National Park. Stand in awe of the massive Grand Canyon National Park. Seek out the multi-colored hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park and the thousands of sandstone arches in Arches National Park. Travel along the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Further north, Alaska’s national parks are breathtaking. Embark on a tundra wilderness tour in Denali National Park and gaze at calving glaciers from your ship in Glacier Bay National Park. Select vacation packages combine these national parks with cruises through Alaska’s Inside Passage.
Traveling to national parks by rail may also take travelers to the parks of Canada. Take a dip in Banff Hot Springs or marvel at views of Banff National Park aboard the Banff Gondola. Hike through Maligne Canyon in Jasper National Park or take a short boat ride on Maligne Lake to Spirit Island for stunning scenes of the Canadian Rockies. Ideal for seniors, for families and for nature lovers of all ages, national park tour packages allow guests to get back to nature.
