Durango to Silverton
The "ALL ABOARD" call and two blows of the whistle signals that your journey is starting. Over the next 3.5 hours you will be treated to spectacular mountain and canyon scenery. Upon arriving in Silverton you will have the afternoon and evening free to relax or partake in optional activities, such as 4WD touring, gold mine tours, horseback riding, or other fun activities. Just check with the hotel upon arriving. Overnight at the historic Grand Imperial Hotel in downtown Silverton.
Silverton to Durango
You have the morning free to savor Silverton or go on one of the many optional tours which can be arranged by the hotel staff. We highly recommend taking a 4WD trip into the mountains or other adventurous activity. The hotel can even arrange half day Jeep rentals. After lunch (not included), you board the train for your return trip to Durango. Upon arrival, you either walk or drive yourself to the Holiday Inn or comparable hotel in Durango.
This unforgettable adventure ends as you check out of your hotel (by 11 am).
