An untouched and unspoiled natural paradise, Verde Canyon in Arizona has been hailed one of the most beautiful places in the USA. Sandwiched between two protected sanctuaries, the Coconino National Forest and the Prescott National Forest, the Verde Canyon Railroad runs a rare ribbon where dramatic desert meets lush vegetation. With no roads, resorts or homes, this train journey offers sights that can only be witnessed on a unique railway adventure.

Arriving at the train depot, you’ll start your experience dressed in complimentary Verde Canyon Railroad safety gear while helping the crew prepare the train for the journey. Working up an appetite, pop over the road for lunch at Copper Spike Café in the depot before the scheduled departure time.

Seated exclusively between the engineer and conductor inside the cab, embark on a four-hour ride from Clarkdale to Perkinsville, travelling on a vintage locomotive through 110 years of history. Take in sights such as cliff walls adorned with cactus and agave, cottonwoods, sycamores, a collision of ecosystems and the Ancient Sinagua ruins.

Returning to your depot as the sun sets, you’ll receive a framed photograph of you and the crew, commemorating your membership of an elite guild, before heading back to rest and relax in the comfort of The Tavern Hotel.
