Qualifying packages include independent rail vacations to popular destinations across the United States and escorted trains tours from New England’s fall foliage to the peaks of the Colorado Rockies and must-see National Parks in-between.

“National parks and rail travel are an exceptionally good combination,” commented Todd Powell, president of Vacations By Rail. So much so the company introduces a brand-new tour to six national parks of the west to their escorted rail tour product line in 2014. The 14-day Western Treasures & Natural Wonders tour travels round-trip from Chicago aboard Amtrak’s Southwest Chief and Empire Builder trains and includes visits to Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks. The tour departs on September 3, 2014 and starts at $3,295 per person. This tour joins returning favorites like the 11-day Yellowstone & Glacier Adventure, the 11-day America’s Parks & Monuments with Mt. Rushmore, and the 14-day America’s Great National Parks.

Also new in 2014 are two rail-cruise combination packages taking travelers from Chicago to the West Coast aboard iconic long-distance trains and onwards to tropical destinations including the Panama Canal and Hawaiian Islands by cruise ship.
