Amtrak Sunset Limited

An Epic Rail Journey Holiday to North America

Amtrak's Sunset Limited takes you between Louisiana and California, along our southern-most route. Settle back and watch the Bayou Country, Mexican border, southwestern deserts and California mountains pass by your window.

Three trains depart weekly in each direction. Services on the Sunset Limited include Superliner Sleeping and Dining Car accommodations and spectacular views from the renowned Sightseer Lounge Car.

In season, onboard National Park Guides provide insights about the changing vista and natural heritage of the region you'll travel through. Sit back, relax, and learn as you take in the desert and coastal landscapes of this great American panorama.

This journey can be completed in 48 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 two ‘overnights’ on the train will be necessary. We will be pleased to arrange accommodation as required.
