The southwestern U.S. is getting a new luxury train route through some of the country’s most scenic territory.   

The Rockies to the Red Rocks journey, set to start in August 2021, will take passengers on a two-day ride from Denver to Moab, Utah, winding through the Rocky Mountains and Utah’s gorgeous natural arches. It makes an overnight stop in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, a town known for its hot springs and rugged Rocky Mountain views.

Rocky Mountaineer, the company behind the route, operates three existing luxury trains in Western Canada — between Vancouver and the Canadian Rocky Mountain towns of Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper. 

“The work to find a new route has been underway for several years,” Steve Sammut, president and CEO of Rocky Mountaineer, said in a statement announcing the expansion. “We needed to find a special location with many of the same features we have in Western Canada — incredible scenery, iconic destinations, and the option for an all daytime, multiday journey that is best experienced by train.”

The company is known for its glass-domed trains, chef-designed menus, expansive outdoor viewing platforms, and a lack of sleeping cars. It instead aims to showcase mountain views during the day and deliver passengers to comfortable, cloud-like hotel beds at night.
