Day 1 - Welcome to Denver,
the Mile High City, nestled in the American Rockies. With its history in the Gold
Rush, today, the city is the centre of sophistication and filled with sophisticated
bar and restaurants.
Day 3 - Today, board the
iconic Rocky Mountaineer on your journey to Glenwood Springs. While on the
train, enjoy the amazing food, drink and of course the views as you travel
Day 4 - Join the Rocky
Mountaineer for the final leg of your trip to Moab, the gateway to Arches &
Canyonlands National Parks.
Day 7 - On a journey filled
with unusual landscapes, Capitol Reef National Park is no less unique. As water
has eroded the sandstone layers, it has left basins known as waterpockets.
Named after the white domes of Navajo sandstone that resemble capitol buildings
and for the rocky cliffs that act as barriers to travel, Capitol Reef is the
most scenic part of the Waterpocket Fold.
Day 8 - Some of the most
bizarre and extraordinary natural architecture anywhere is found at Bryce
Canyon. Your first view of the park is a dramatic unveiling; wind through pine
trees until they break at the rim of the Canyon.
Day 9 - Zion is a true
desert paradise; watch as the light plays on the sandstone, plateaus, and
monoliths in an ever-changing array of colour.
Day 11 - Lake
Powell is the second largest man-made lake in the US and certainly one of
the most scenic, stretching 186 miles across the red rock desert. What makes
the lake so memorable is the contrast between the deep clear blue waters and
the surrounding landscape - stark red sandstone rocks.
Day 12 - The Grand Canyon
is all that you expect it to be. Vast, breathtaking and ever-changing according
to the light and weather.
Day 13 - Arriving into the
Phoenix area today, you’ll instantly be captivated by the Valley of the Sun.
This multi-cultural, historical and rapidly growing metropolitan area, which
began as a small town in the middle of the desert, gets 360 days of sunshine a
year, and has heritage, entertainment and recreation to spare.
