This 14-day train trip will let you see five of the most beautiful National Parks in style

Traveling by train has a lot of benefits and we are totally ready to sign up for this 14-day excursion that takes you to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Arches, and Canyonlands National Parks. No worries about booking entrance tickets, finding lodging, or renting a car. You can just go ahead and cross those off your list as the whole trip is planned and executed by someone else.

Vacations By Rail is the company that brings you the glass-domed train that lets you see all of the gorgeous scenery as you are passing by. This journey starts in Chicago (or you can elect to start in Seattle) where you hop aboard the Empire Builder on the way to Glacier National Park.

Glacier National Park

At Glacier National Park you’ll have four nights of included lodging at either Glacier Park Lodge or the Grouse Mountain Lodge within the park. Activities include touring the famed Going-to-the-Sun Road across the Continental Divide via motorcoach with a guide to point out all the sights and animals along the way.

Board a boat at Swiftcurrent Lake to explore the area by water and then enjoy the nearby hiking trails, waterfalls and gorgeous green meadows of this area of our country.
