Starlight Tours at the Verde Canyon Railroad
2016 Tour Dates: June 18th, July 16th, August 20th and September 17th
All Aboard! The Verde Canyon Railroad has announced the return of their very popular Starlight Tours! The first tour of the season will take place this weekend on June 18th!
Many of the people that visit Northern Arizona make sure to take the scenic, relaxing journey into the Verde Canyon aboard the fully-restored vintage train that calls the canyon home. During the summer time the Verde Canyon Railroad offers you the chance to see the canyon in a whole new light with their very popular Starlight Tours. The Starlight tour offers you a totally different perspective of the Verde Canyon. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues and the wildlife that call the canyon home begin to stir as the cooler temperatures of the evening approach. I highly suggest visiting the open air cars often during the night journey into the canyon, especially when the train reaches its turn-around point at Perkinsville. The sun is usually setting around this time lighting the sky with a brilliant pallet of colors. On the ride back to the station enjoy the canvas of stars that blanket the canyon. The Starlight train departs the depot at 5:30 pm.
