Discover the American Rocky Mountains | Fly Drive Holiday

Holiday Duration: 18 Nights

Frontier’s Personal Experience

“I’m a huge fan of the Colorado Rockies, in particular Breckenridge. As an old mining town, it gives off an authentic look and feel. The beautiful mountain is just steps from the town and I highly recommend an Alpine hike – simply stunning!”

Discover the Great American Rocky Mountains

Discover the Great American Rocky Mountains

This splendid Rocky Mountains fly-drive holiday starts from Denver, Colorado and explores the American wild west driving through Wyoming, South Dakota and Montana.  Your holiday will visit western museums, a rodeo in Cody and the impressive Mount Rushmore. You will have opportunities to see buffalo, elk and bighorn sheep, enjoy the cowboy history plus the majestic scenery of Yellowstone National Park.  Experience Jackson Hole, Wyoming with its fine western bars and cuisine as well as exploring the majestic Grand Tetons. We have planned the holiday to finish in Salt Lake City but if you prefer to drive back to Denver, this can easily be arranged as all our holidays are tailor-made. The best time for this holiday is from early June through to end of September.

TIP:  Buy an America the Beautiful Pass which will save you lots of money in pass entrance fees.

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.

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
