Coast Starlight

An Epic Rail Journey Holiday to Washington & Oregon, USA

Widely regarded as one of the most spectacular of all train routes, the Coast Starlight links the greatest cities on the West Coast. En route daily between Seattle and Los Angeles, the Coast Starlight passes through Portland, Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Barbara.

The scenery along the Coast Starlight route is unsurpassed. The dramatic snow-covered peaks of the Cascade Range and Mount Shasta, lush forests, fertile valleys and long stretches of Pacific Ocean shoreline provide a stunning backdrop for your journey.

This legendary train now features enhanced coaches and sleeping cars, along with exclusive new amenities. The Dining Car offers fresh cuisine served on real china and table linens, while the Arcade Room will entertain kids of all ages with a great selection of arcade-style video games. Coach passengers enjoy big, comfortable seats, plenty of legroom and new, larger pillows, plus available at-seat meal service.

Sleeping car passengers can experience a full range of exclusive services and amenities on the Coast Starlight, including complimentary onboard internet access via AmtrakConnect and an exciting alternative meal service, both available in the Parlour Car. 

Each sleeping car passenger will receive complimentary meals (with the exception of alcohol) in the Dining Car or the Parlour Car, a special welcome gift and a personal amenities kit that includes shampoo, soaps and lotions. 

A daily tasting of local wines and artisan cheeses is available for a nominal fee in the refurbished Pacific Parlour Car. This "living room on rails" is the perfect place for sleeping car passengers to relax, celebrate or socialize. With a specialty coffee bar, onboard theatre and alternative dining venue, the Pacific Parlour Car will make your Coast Starlight experience unforgettable.

This journey can be completed in 35 hours, and onboard sleeping accommodations can be booked. If you wish extend the trip to explore along the way we would suggest the locations listed for stopovers. 

The suggested durations are designed to fit in with the train schedule, however one ‘overnight’ on the train will be necessary. We will be pleased to arrange accommodation as required.
