The captivating beauty and majesty of Yellowstone can only truly be described by those who have visited. During your five-day Getaway Roundtrip rail journey from Denver, you’ll experience why it is one of America’s most beloved national parks. There is so much more within Yellowstone’s boundaries than just the Old Faithful geyser. Incredibly diverse wildlife, steaming hot springs, cauldrons, and thousands of square miles of vast wilderness make the park a must-visit! Spend your days exploring Isa Lake on the Continental Divide, take in the tranquility of grassy Lamar Valley, get an awesome panorama view at Point Sublime, and enjoy watching wildlife in their natural habitats. In the evenings, marvel at the vastness of stars in the sky overhead. Few places in the world have the power to inspire so much awe and wonder as Yellowstone.
Denver is an outdoor adventure waiting to be explored. Nestled at the foothills of the Rockies, the “Mile-High City” is famous for its scenic beauty and ample opportunities to ski, hike, kayak, bike, or simply stroll through the many beautiful parks. The city has a thriving cultural scene brimming with performing arts, live music and comedy, museums and art galleries, and festivals and special events. There’s something for everyone on a Denver city getaway.
Salt Lake City:
Nestled at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains, Utah’s friendly capital city is loaded with outdoor recreation options, historic sites, cultural events and family activities. In addition to world class skiing, the city offers great hiking and biking. Explore Big Cottonwood Canyon or bike downtown at bustling Liberty Park. Tour the Capital Building; visit the Clark Planetarium or Hogle Zoo; and shop at The City Creek Center. In the evening, take in the lively nightlife with a pub, dance club, concert or play.
Yellowstone National Park:
Located in Northwest Wyoming, Yellowstone is America’s oldest and largest national park. A natural wonder of geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, lakes, canyons and unspoiled forests, it is a perfect getaway. Yellowstone is home to more than 300 geysers, including Old Faithful, and hundreds of species of wild birds and exotic plants. Outdoor activities abound including hiking, kayaking, fly fishing, skiing and snowshoeing. Go it alone, take in a scenic tour or join one of many ranger-led activities.
