Cowboys & American Indians | Fly Drive Holiday

Holiday Duration: 16 Nights

"Seamless Holiday"

We used Frontier Travel to book our honeymoon. We were given all the information we needed and everything ran seamlessly. We had a fantastic time, the hotels and lodges were perfect. Thank you for organising such a brilliant trip!

Cowboys and American Indians

Cowboys and American Indians

The American Indian tribes of the Great Plains were the first residents in the west of the Rocky Mountains and it is still their home. This fascinating fly-drive holiday covers both North and South Dakota as well as a bit of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.

The region is home to sixteen Native American nations and with Frontier America you will be able to explore the history, the culture and see their artwork as you meander through their homelands. Learn about the Lewis & Clark expedition at Custer’s Last Stand, drive part of the Native American Scenic Byway, visit the Sitting Bull Monument and the Crazy Horse Memorial, cross the Badlands of South Dakota and have a few days on a ranch: after all, without the horses, this area would have a very different history.

This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

Rockies To The Red Rocks

Rockies To The Red Rocks

Following the phenomenal success of the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada, the train has now landed in Colorado and can be added to any holiday starting or ending in Denver.

The Rocky Mountaineer is a luxury train service that offers passengers a unique way to experience the American Southwest. The train travels through some of the most stunning scenery in the region, including the Rocky Mountains, the Colorado River, and the red rock canyons of Utah.

The American Rocky Mountaineer travels between from Denver, Colorado, and Moab, Utah. The rail journey takes two days with an overnight in Glenwood Springs plus two in Moab where we have included a tour of the Arches, but if you want something more exciting, we can organise an excursion for you by air, mountain bike, 4×4, light aircraft or jetboat

SilverLeaf passengers sit in a single level dome car with panoramic windows where delicious meals and snacks will be delivered to your seat. You will be kept entertained and informed by three onboard hosts and you can access the Outdoor viewing area. For a small supplement, you can buy SilverLeaf Plus which will give you access to the lounge car, signature cocktails and premium alcoholic drinks, as well as an elevated dining experience with wine pairings and an additional host.

No matter which service level you choose, you are sure to enjoy the stunning scenery and the comfortable accommodations on the Rocky Mountaineer. The train hosts are friendly and attentive, and they are happy to answer any questions you may have about the journey.

NB:  GoldLeaf is not available as the two-level carriages will not fit through the US tunnels.

This memorable journey can be added on to any itinerary starting or ending in Denver.  There are also some escorted Rocky Mountaineer holidays linking the train with a bus excursions starting in Salt Lake City or Las Vegas.

Well done. you triumphed again. Our trip to Utah went perfectly and we had an extraordinary experience with miles of hiking in amazing scenery. The accommodation was all first class and we especially loved Red Cliffs in Moab. Wonderful resort right on the Colorado. Many thanks.
