Train to America’s National Parks

The immense expanses of the United States include some of the world’s most beautiful places; the National Parks. These huge areas of land serve to protect both the spectacular landscapes and the thousands of different species of flora and fauna that therein live. There are nearly sixty national parks in the US. From the warm and humid south-east, home of alligators and pelicans to the dry windswept deserts of the west where erosion over the millennia has carved the sandstone into extraordinary cliffs, rock formations and plunging canyons.

Some of these parks are accessible by an iconic Amtrak train; the Empire Builder will take you from Chicago to Seattle via Glacier National Park in Montana or the Southwest Chief, from Los Angeles to Chicago, will allow you to spend a couple of days viewing the wonders of the Grand Canyon. Others are more easily accessible by car or coach. Names like Yellowstone and Yosemite, neither of which needs an adjective to heighten their allure, fall into this category. These are easily reached with one of our National Parks escorted tours, locally hosted excursions, or booking a rail-drive holiday and will exceed the wildest dreams of every sightseer.
