Royal Gorge Adventure And Train Ride
Add to cart
We feature seven fascinating railroad excursion packages that combine the very best that the Rocky Mountain wilderness has to offer.
A full day of taking the famous Royal Gorge Railway, visiting the bridge itself, lunch, and winery tour. Includes round trip limo van from Summit County, CO.
Your day begins with a gorgeous drive over the Continental Divide as you ascend to the top of Hoosier Pass at 11,541 feet above sea level. Wildlife is abundant on your ride to historic Cañon City.
A highlight of your luxury van ride to the train station occurs just as you enter the Cañon City area, with a one-of-a-kind drive up the world famous and beautiful Skyline Drive.
Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch on the riverbank of the mighty Arkansas.
Then, you’re taken to the 1950’s-era diesel locomotive train to take you over 12 miles up the old Denver, Rio Grande and Western rail line and back again. This journey glides through the “Grand Canyon of the Arkansas” with an unforgettable vista at the famous Hanging Bridge, which clings precariously to the steep granite walls. The top of the canyon is over 1,000 feet above and gives you a breath-taking view of the Royal Gorge Bridge.
Upon your return to the Cañon City station, your Alpenglow Adventures tour guide will have your van transportation ready for the next round of excitement with a visit to the Winery at Holy Cross Abbey; complete with free tastings.
Next, head to the Royal Gorge Bridge/Theme Park where you can check off some more Colorado bucket list items.
