Round Trip Tours

Circle Tours

Begin and end your vacation in the same destination with a round trip vacati0n by rail. These grand adventures double the sights you see as the train travels a northern and southern route, or in a loop, to your beginning and endpoint. Each course is highlighted by stops in vibrant cities and scenic destinations that bring to life the essence of the regions through which they travel. Select from circle tours in the United States, Canada or Europe, and enjoy distinct geographical differences, as well as completely different train experiences, in each country.

Amtrak roundtrip rail vacations in the U.S. can travel west from Chicago and over the Colorado Rockies to Salt Lake City and San Francisco aboard the California Zephyr. The return to the Windy City follows a course through the colorful Southwest aboard the Southwest Chief. Set out through the unique landscapes of California, departing from San Francisco and  visiting Yosemite National Park and the wineries of Napa Valley. There are also  tours that highlight the colorful autumn hues and historical sites of New England. These convenient tours even make their rounds through Alaska.

In Canada, join a grand rail circle through the Canadian Rockies. You can elect to travel roundtrip aboard the all-daylight Rocky Mountaineer train or take one leg of the trip aboard VIA Rail's Canadian, adding a classic overnight rail experience to your vacation. Across the pond, these spectacular journeys can include time in Switzerland, home to some of the most scenic railways in the world and the awe-inspiring Swiss Alps. Vacations in Scotland present ancient castles and moving views of the Scottish Highlands aboard iconic rail lines. Join us for an expedition to remember in some of the world's best locales.

Fiona H, Raleigh, NC
5 stars
“Before taking the vacation, I was doubtful that it would be value for money as it was by far the most expensive vacation I have ever taken, or am likely to take. Now I think it was worth every penny. From the booking process to the final departure for home, it was a truly phenomenal experience.
