Riviera Travel launches ‘epic’ escorted US tour for 2023

Riviera Travel has put a new escorted tour to the US on sale, with departures for next year.

Called USA’s Rocky Mountaineer & Iconic National Parks, the 15-day tour features four states and a recently-introduced route on the Rocky Mountaineer rail journey (pictured), which crosses the US section of the Rocky Mountains and the Red Rocks area of Utah.

It also includes visits to five national or state parks, such as Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon.

Four departures are available, in May, June, August and September 2023.

Prices start from £4,299 and include return flights and transfers, a programme of daily tours and visits and B&B accommodation.

Will Sarson, head of strategy and innovation at Riviera Travel, said: “This epic new tour offers guests the chance to explore some of the world’s finest national parks and spectacular scenery.

“These are coupled with an exhilarating new two-day scenic train journey on the Rocky Mountaineer, which will be a spectacular experience for first-timers, as well as anyone who has enjoyed the Canadian version and is looking to travel again.

“With four vast US states covered and a unique combination of experiences you don’t get anywhere else, this is an adventure not to be missed.”

Riviera’s 2023 prices have been frozen until July 31.
