At TravelPirates, the Rocky Mountaineer trains are all on our bucket lists. Before now, they've only been available in Canada, so we're super excited that 2021 is bringing us a Rocky Mountaineer route between Colorado and Utah — glass-domes train cars and all!
The route starts in Denver and follows the Colorado River over to Glenwood Springs, where guests will stay overnight. The next day the train routes through a variety of impressive scenery, ending at Moab, Utah.
There are lots of ways to see the Rockies, but this is the only one where you can, eat, drink (alcohol), and take in the rockies from your seat — they say it's best to experience the Rockies by train, but we're pretty sure they meant by glass train.
Yep, trains can be pretty cool, and you can learn more about booking below!

The price tag on this multi-day trainsperience are definitely not straightforward value like $39 flights to Nashville, but the $1,250 price tag can be justified when considering the high-class experience offered for two days and one night.
