Amtrak Holidays

There is a mystique to riding the rails, a sense of excitement and anticipation as you walk down the platform, the carriages towering above your head. You find your seat, and, at the appointed time, you feel a small lurch as your journey begins. No one tells you to sit down or to fasten your seat-belt or to put your case in the overhead rack. It’s a refreshing change.

Amtrak trains are either regional services with both coach and business class seating or the high-speed Acela trains, offering first and business class between the more densely travelled rail routes. Or between the seaboards, is the domain of the mighty long-distance Superliner trains. You can, for example, experience two relaxing nights on the train from Chicago to San Francisco and in between see some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The magnificent Rockies from ground level look a little different than when you are seeing them from six miles up!

Watch the changing view of the landscape from the comfort of your chair in the sightseeing lounge car or over a delightful meal prepared to order in the dining car. Then be lulled to sleep in your private cabin by the distant hum of the diesels as your carriage is pulled swiftly toward your journey’s end. Tomorrow you will arrive refreshed into a new destination to explore – it is an experience not to be missed.

When you book an Amtrak holiday you can either select from one pre-designed by our experienced staff who have arranged the itinerary to ensure that you experience all the best sights and delights of your chosen route or, if you have a particular list of cities and sights in mind, we can custom arrange a journey, providing advice and suggestions to ensure that you enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
