For this week’s episode of the Sansei Traveler podcast, I talked with Jeff Caesar, business development manager with Rocky Mountaineer, which is a Canadian-based company specializing in luxury rail travel.  Since 1990, they’ve taken travelers from all around the world between the Vancouver and the beautiful Canadian Rockies.  Unlike other rail travel, guests don’t stay on the train but in luxury hotels at points along the way.

The newest destination for Rocky Mountaineer and the first American itinerary is close to home (at least for me) - a route going from Denver to southern Utah’s Red Rock country and the several National Parks in the Moab area.  Jeff will talk at length about this exciting development for the company.

Here are some other topics that Jeff and I discussed:

  • What's Rocky Mountaineer's history?
  • What makes a vacation with them  unique?
  • Where do they go, and where are the planning to go in the future?
  • What's Rocky Mountaineer's new destination between Denver and the National Parks in Utah, and why was this region chosen?
  • What kind of service and amenities can guests expect with this new itinerary
  • What kind of health and safety procedures do you have in place to protect guests from COVID-19 transmission?

In the next podcast episode on February 13th,  I'll be talking to Alicia Kjeldgaard, business development manager with Backroads, one of the pioneering active adventure companies with biking, hiking, and multi-sport vacations around the world.
