Travel experiences

Canyons, Trains and The Rockies

16th September, 2021

Mount Shuksan

If you have been dreaming of heading off to the USA, then a trip through the Rocky Mountains is sure to get you excited. From glorious scenery in a number of National Parks to getting to know the heritage of this rich landscape, you will not want to leave when the adventure comes to an end! Find out more about this magical destination before you book.

Explore the Native Heritage

One of the most interesting parts of travelling through the Rockies is having an opportunity to learn more about the Native American people that have called it home for many centuries. From the Ute, Cheyenne, Comanche, and Arapaho tribes that lived in and travelled through this area to the Puebloan groups that made their homes in the cliffs, your guide will be able to tell you all about the way these people have shaped the area into the place we know it as today.

Explore five National Parks

When you think about national parks, you would be forgiven for thinking that they are all expanses of green fields and beautiful trees. While this is true of some areas, they also offer a whole lot more. From canyons to glaciers and lakes to sand dunes, there really is a lot to see! Plus, when you visit on a Saga tour, you will have an expert guide that will take you to a number of national parks during your time away.

Hop-on board the Rocky Mountaineer

Ride the Rocky Mountaineer

Another part of any great American adventure is travelling part of your journey via rail. Part of the Canyons, Trains and Rockies tour gives you the chance to enjoy a two-day journey on the Rocky Mountaineer.

This adventure not only gives you the chance to see the Mile High City, but you will also witness the red cliffs of Moab too, proving the senior holidays in North America have more to offer than you may have first considered. You will also have the opportunity to travel on a steam train in San Juan and learn more about the different influences that have moulded these areas into the destinations they have become.
