Luxury rail company Rocky Mountaineer has partnered with the Moab Music Festival to launch a unique train journey/experience called Sounds in the Southwest. This 8-night musical travel package will depart from Sept. 3-11, 2024, connecting your clients with one of the hottest musical events in the Southwest.

The journey begins with a 2-day Rockies to the Red Rocks rail route from Denver, Colorado, to Moab, Utah, aboard the iconic Rocky Mountaineer. Guests will then spend four nights in Moab, fully immersing themselves in the famous Moab Music Festival, which features gorgeous natural venues set among canyon walls, rivers and towering red rocks.

The Sounds in the Southwest Package includes round-trip travel from Denver onboard Rocky Mountaineer’s SilverLeaf Plus Service, which gives clients exclusive access to the lounge car with live music entertainment and house-made cocktails. The package also includes tickets to four Moab Music Festival programs, round-trip transportation to music venues and destination sightseeing tours.

Of note: Rocky Mountaineer is a daylight-only rail experience, so your clients will have eight nights of hotel accommodations as part of the package.

Very limited seats are available for this exclusive travel experience. The Sounds in the Southwest package is also eligible for the Feature Package Promotion running through April, offering up to $1,000 USD in savings per couple when booking before April 30, 2024.
