Discover breathtaking scenery and beautiful national parks on this Rocky Mountain Discovery with Rail tour.

In Colorado Springs, visit the Garden of the Gods, a registered National Natural Landmark with towering red rock formations. As you ride the Georgetown Loop Railroad through the rugged Rocky Mountains, witness stunning scenery, gold and silver mines, and keep an eye out for wildlife such as eagles and big horn sheep. Finally, ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, a legendary coal-fired, steam-powered train that hugs deep canyon walls and offers magnificent beauty traveling through San Juan National Forest.

In Taos visit the historic Taos Plaza and in Santa Fe, embark on a guided trolley revealing the town’s Spanish, Indian, and American heritage. Step back in time as you visit Mesa Verde National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to see how the Ancestral Pueblo people lived in cliff dwellings from 600 to 1300 AD. On this discovery tour, you’ll also visit Rocky Mountain National Park, and at 12,183 feet provides stunning alpine views, and Colorado National Monument, with towering monoliths and red-rock canyons. Visit one of Colorado’s greatest natural wonders, Seven Falls. Be enveloped by cliffs and delighted by the cascade of water that tumbles 181 feet down.
