Amtrak Adds Vacation Deals to National Parks

Amtrak Vacations has introduced 25 new rail-based vacation packages, increasing to about 350 the number of its offerings.

Amtrak logo“There are more than 350 itineraries total, an infinite number of variations,” said Frank Marini, president of Amtrak Vacations. “You can add, build, or change anything you want based on the customers’ needs.”

The new packages are centered around travel to U.S. national parks.

Called the Grand National Parks, the trips originate in Chicago and include visits to Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.

The 13-day package includes eight nights’ hotel accommodation, four nights onboard Amtrak and two meals, and is priced starting at $2,849.

Trains involved include the California Zephyr, Southwest Chief and the Coast Starlight.

“We watch what people are tailor-making and when we see a trend we create a package,” Marini said. “We introduce new programs throughout the year, not just at official launch dates.”

He said Amtrak Vacations has seen an increase in business as domestic travel has increased.
