New tours from perfect partners

Get on track to see North America

Two award-winning travel companies have announced the expansion of their partnership.

Tauck and Rocky Mountaineer are introducing two new North American journeys that each feature a scenic two-day rail component.

The two new itineraries are the eight-day ‘Salt Lake City to Denver by Rocky Mountaineer’ and the 10-day ‘The Best of Western Canada & Rocky Mountaineer’.

The two companies already partner on a third itinerary, ‘Vancouver & the Rockies by Rocky Mountaineer’.

The train segment in each of Tauck’s two new itineraries will pair the ease, relaxation and romance of rail travel – including panoramic views of alpine landscapes – with the comfort and amenities provided by full-service hotel accommodations along the way.

Tauck’s new ‘Salt Lake City to Denver by Rocky Mountaineer’ begins with two days sightseeing in SLC and a visit to nearby Park City, once a bustling mining town and now a four-season resort area set in the heart of the Rockies.

During a subsequent two-night stay in Moab, Utah, guests will visit Dead Horse Point State Park, take a flightseeing excursion over Canyonlands National Park and enjoy a choice of either a gentle whitewater rafting adventure on the Colorado River or a 4x4 off-road tour.

After exploring Arches National Park, guests will board their Rocky Mountaineer train and travel to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, where they’ll enjoy a night’s hotel stay.

The following day the train will head to Denver, traversing the Continental Divide by travelling through the nine-kilometre-long Moffat Tunnel outside of the city.

The remainder of the journey is comprised of a two-night stay at The Four Seasons Hotel Denver, with an exploration of the city and the Rocky Mountain foothills bordering Denver to the west.

The eight-day tour is priced from $12,932 per person double occupancy and the 10-day itinerary from $US15,940 per person double occupancy.
