Itinerary

Board Rocky Mountaineer in the scenic city of Denver, Colorado. Before long, you’ll be taking in the scenic views of the Gross Reservoir Dam. The train will slowly gain elevation before reaching the Continental Divide, cutting through 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) of mountainous terrain via the Moffat Tunnel. You’ll continue along the Colorado River through more rugged landscapes and canyons, including the picturesque Byers and Gore canyons. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, as you may get a glimpse of some native to these canyons. You will then pull into Glenwood Springs and relax overnight at a cozy hotel.
Your journey begins as you head southeast past mountain vistas and desert cliffs. Impressive landscapes continue as you pass by Parachute Creek and Mount Logan towards De Beque Canyon, a 24-kilometre-long (15 mile) narrow canyon with stair-step cliffs of sedimentary rock layers. Continuing east, you’ll pass by Mount Garfield, the highest point of the Book Cliffs. These sandstone cliffs and mountains stretch 320 kilometres (200 miles) from east to west and mark the crossing from Colorado to Utah. Breathtaking red rock formations emerge as you approach Moab, the gateway to Utah’s Mighty 5 national parks.
