Independent Rail Tours

Independent Rail Tours Overview

The excitement begins as you walk down the platform toward your carriage. The conductor greets you with a smile and a ‘Welcome aboard.’ Settle into your cosy on board accommodation and leave the driving to someone else as you travel deep into unspoiled natural beauty. Admire the passing scenery from your seat or the glass-covered observation car. Enjoy a hot meal in the dining car or the café, read a book, or listen to music as the train crisscrosses the country. Many of our journeys include overnight travel aboard an iconic long-distance train.

The independent rail tours featured on our website explore the best that the United States and Canada has to offer. There are visits to national parks, foliage tours in New England in the autumn, rail journeys from coast to coast through the mighty Rockies. The rail tours showcased are purely suggestions and are intended to give an overview of what is possible. These itineraries are fully customisable and can be tailor-made to suit your own individual requirements.  If you would like to start in a different destination, use specific hotel accommodation, include an extra night here, a side-trip there and/or include tickets to an event please let your Discover North America travel specialist know and they’ll ensure they keep you on track and deliver you a perfectly tailored Independent rail tour adventure.
