Know More about this tour

Make your way to theVerde Canyon Railroad Train Depot in Clarkdale, Arizona, not far from Sedona, to begin your Verde Canyon Railroad adventure.

This rail adventure offers a wilderness train ride through the remote Verde Canyon which is known for its picturesque setting and abundant wildlife. Though its possible to hike in the canyon, by far the easiest way to experience it is by riding this scenic wilderness train.

The train is made up of exquisitely-renovated passenger coaches and open-air viewing cars pulled by vintage locomotives and travels a route along the Verde River between Clarkdale and Perkinsville. After embarking from the Clarkdale depot, sit back for a 4-hour, 40-mile round trip that includes views of historic mining sites, geological wonders, Sinagua Indian cliff dwellings and wildlife from bald eagles to antelope.

You will remain spellbound as your vintage carriages cross an expansive railway bridge embedded in basalt cliffs, glide through a covered bridge opening the gateway to Perkinsville, or experience daylight retreating in the 680-foot manmade tunnel, all odes to that same bygone era. Two FP7 locomotives, only two of 10 remaining in North America, are the muscle that powers the newly-renovated passenger cars.

Indoor cars are climate-controlled with restrooms and the train meets ADA requirements. Your first class cabins feature panoramic windows in a living room-style atmosphere of comfortable love seats or bistro-style chair-and-table seating near panoramic windows. Enjoy a champagne toast upon boarding, a variety of complimentary appetizers reflecting the southwest region and full-service cash bars featuring premium liquors and beverage service at your seat. With comfortable seating indoors and access to high-backed benches on the adjoining open-air cars, it is like getting two seats for the price of one.

  • Relaxing ride along the river and the landscape is gorgeous. Staff is friendly and informative.

  • Great experience - exceeded our expectations would definitely do it again in a different season.

  • Beautiful scenery! Informed and helpful crew. Will definitely consider a second trip!

  • I booked a trip in Sedona - Verde Canyon Railway. It was for today at 13:00. When I arrived by taxi 48 I was told that there was no 1pm train and that I had been booked on the 17:30 train, without my knowledge let alone my consent. I told that the later time would mean that it would be impossible to take the photos I had planned to take. the reply was that there would be sufficient light to take photos on the outbound part of the trip. Well it was not possible and I am furious. I would never have booked an evening trip. I am travelling alone and my interest was the scenery, and hopefully the wildlife. If I had wanted to sit on a train in the dark I could have done that in the UK and not paid to do so in US. I should have been given the choice to have a refund, or change to a different day. The evening trip was mainly for parties which as I was by myself made me feel bad. I choose the trip for information not to have a celebration.

  • Very disappointed that it was not round trip, very bored , turned around and all was the same view we had going out. Would not do again

  • The train was really fun and relaxing. I'm handicap and the staff was great and very helpful.

  • Beautiful scenery. Excellent staff support.

  • We had a great time! The scenery is beautiful, first class comfy! The folks that work on the railroad were all so nice and informative!
