Vacations By Rail

Rail to National Parks is consistently one of the most popular vacation segments.

Specialty travel company Vacations By Rail has unveiled 2013 departure dates and pricing for their best-selling rail vacations to popular National Parks throughout the United States and Canada.

“Rail to National Parks is consistently one of the most popular vacation segments,” said Todd Powell, president of Vacations of By Rail. “We recommend booking early to ensure availability and lock in travel plans, especially for summer travel when special events, like Glacier National Park’s Employee Centennial Reunion from July 16-19, will make availability extremely tight.”

Powell continued by saying that within the U.S., Glacier National Park is one of the most popular destinations by train, noting that its location on Amtrak’s Empire Builder route makes it especially desirable for travelers. The company offers nine independent rail trips to Glacier National Park, ranging from 5 to 11 days and starting at $1,260 and 9 escorted rail tours including the top-selling 11-day Yellowstone & Glacier Adventure tour. Second in demand: Grand Canyon National Park with 12 independent and escorted train vacations to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World by way of Amtrak’s Southwest Chief. Independent packages also include travel aboard the vintage Grand Canyon Railway. Vacations range from 4 to 14 days and start at $624.

Within Canada, the Canadian Rockies and the National Parks and townships of Jasper and Banff remain favorite destinations. More than 30 vacation options starting at $917 per person incorporate travel aboard the country’s famed all-daylight touring train, the Rocky Mountaineer, as well as VIA Rail’s cross-Canada overnight train, the Canadian.
