The train offers wonderful views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys filled in wild flowers, dense pine forests, high desert plains and small canyons. The train arrives just steps from the Grand Canyon's South Rim. 

Once at the Grand Canyon, enjoy magnificent views of the Grand Canyon from the grand Canyon Village.  We provide a complementary box lunch for you. We then spend approximately 4-hours in the Grand Canyon National Park (entrance fees are included). We will stop at several excellent view points as we make our way across the South Rim.
