Most Scenic Train Rides in the World
The Empire Builder
Start Point Chicago, USA
End Point Portland/Seattle, USA
For much of the journey, youll barely stifle yawns as the train lumbers through cornfields and flatlands. Then it enters Montana and the cornfields give way to hills and vast wilderness. You perk up a little, maybe hoping for the fabled landscapes youve heard so much about. You glimpse a few peaks, the forest grows thicker, and before you know it, youre right in the middle of the most beautiful place in the two Americas Glacier National Park. This stretch through the million acres of the park alone makes the entire trip worth it.
