Kaleidoscope of Winter Wonders whisks travelers west by train for a 12-day coastal discovery, highlights of which include travel aboard three trains—Amtrak’s California Zephyr, Coast Starlight, and Empire Builder—and visits to awe-inspiring Yosemite National Park, sunny San Diego, picturesque Santa Barbara, and the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle. This escorted tour has one departure on February 8, 2013. Prices start at $2,895.

Christmas in the Rockies gives travelers 8- and 10-day vacation options for celebrating the Christmas holiday in the Canadian Rockies. Highlights include travel aboard VIA Rail’s famed overnight train, the Canadian, and stays at deluxe hotels decked in holiday trimmings in the alpine towns of Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff. Departures are available December 17 and 20, 2012. Prices start at $2,749.
